COMMON BUSINESS PROBLEMS

  • Many projects kick off with no chance of completion in the expected timeframe because the assigned people are not available to deliver the work.
  • High priority projects are not always staffed with the right skills or skill proficiency levels to be successful.
  • There is a general lack of visibility into capacity shortfall in key skill areas with creates bottlenecks across projects
  • There is a poor mix of employees and contractors, creating unnecessary redundancy and cost overruns in key areas.
  • Low utilization levels exist in some skill areas, while shortfall is found in other skill areas (demand & capacity mismatch).
  • There is no formal staff planning process _ new hire requests are generated as needs come up without a long term strategy.
