Unplanned changes in the economy cause fluctuations in staffing requirements. It is therefore important for companies to know who is currently working on which tasks and which skills are required. Missing information or lack of knowledge leads to wrong decisions and suboptimal personnel deployment. Thomas Schlereth, managing director of Can Do GmbH, explained that it doesn't have to come to that and how to prepare in time at the first online PMI Chapter Meeting in front of about 70 participants at the end of June in Munich. The following questions were discussed:
- Why does a comprehensive overview of resources favour the flexibility and power of a company in uncertain times?
- Can this "flexibility" also entail job cuts?
- Against this background, will skills and resource management become more important in the near future to effectively counter project risks?

In July, Can Do will also provide a free 14-day trial offer of the project management software including remote support.
