Project Human Resource Requirements
The human resource and skill requirements will vary considerably during each phase of the project; accordingly our example of a project resource plan shows these requirements in terms of the different type of skilled professionals required for executing different aspects under each phase. The resource details include the following:
Resource Type: The resource type refers to what type of a professional is needed to execute the said task. For instance – programmers, designers, writers or photographers, as in our example of building a website, are the different resource types needed.
Source: This section is meant for listing the source which will make the desired professionals available for accomplishing the tasks. If the professional is from within the organization you can simply write ‘Internal’ under the source and if you’re outsourcing the process to someone then the name of the agency or the name of the professional can be put here.
Quantity: This is simply the number of professionals needed for completing a task.
Hours Required: This is an estimate of the total number of hours that will be needed for completion of the task.
Controller: Here goes the name of the person or team at whose deposal the resource will be and who will have full authority over allocation of the resource.
