Capacity & Resource Management
One of our customers recently nailed it: “It’s not about the budget, the budget is available” he complained in a fireside talk,
“the key to success of getting things done around here, is to have specific colleagues available at the right point in time”.
In Germany, we even have a word for it “Kopfmonopol”, which describes certain key colleagues,
who have profound knowledge or a specific skill set which is crucial for the successful execution of a project.
These colleagues or teams often – independent from the actual project management methodology – represent bottlenecks,
since they are simply requested to contribute in far too many projects.
