Project managers often run into issues with timing resources on projects. One such issue can happen at the beginning of the project, which is the timing of bringing resources on board the project. It is critical for a project manager to have appropriate resource(s) on the team, but more than that, availability of the resources is more important. Project manager cannot on board the resources earlier than the project start date as it is costly and at the same time, project manager cannot risk taking a chance in delaying leading to resource unavailability, which ultimately will cause project delay. To combat this, project manager needs to assign the resources as soon as possible. This will not only help in risk aversion in finding an important resource but will also establish an effective head start to the project. If the project doesn’t have enough resources allocated in time, certain aspects of the project, such as project scope and timeline must be revised keeping all the stakeholders informed (Garrett, 2012). Project manager also must deal with resource timing issues at the end of project. These issues include, but are not limited to, releasing, rewarding and recognizing the

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
