Do you feel like you’re constantly being asked to do more with less? Are your people frequently being pulled off of strategic work to address emergencies, pet projects, and other interruptions? If so, you’re not alone. Indeed, with pressures mounting and competition increasing, there seems to never be enough resources to tackle what needs to be done.
It may feel like you’re being asked to do battle, but there’s no need to fall on your own sword! Look no further than the great military strategists – from Sun Tzu (500 BC) to Napoleon – for how to wage war with limited resources.
In this lively and informative webcast, Planview senior research analyst and resident history buff Jerry Manas takes an in-depth look at some timeless lessons from a thousand years of military strategy to address today’s most common resource problems. In this webcast, you’ll learn:
• How to not get overmatched by prioritizing the intake of work or limiting its scope to a more manageable size
• How to protect your resources from being over-booked, over-used, and burnt out
• When projects should be delayed until you have the necessary resources
• How adequate training, skills, and tools can make the difference between success and failure
• Why “divide and conquer” and multitasking often fails
We hope you’ll join us for timeless insights into how to improve your resource planning and not feel like you’re going into battle every day.
