Webinar: Effective Resource Management for Project Team Members
Project team member engagement and utilization is cited as one of the top reasons for Lean Six Sigma project failure, however there are few tangible recommendations available to alleviate this in project teams. This presentation explores how overutilization of resources (team members) can contribute to decreased project effectiveness by using a thought exercise. We will start the webinar with an exercise that will increase participant awareness of overutilization and the organizational impacts. The exercise will be replicable for practitioners to use with their stakeholders to illustrate the importance of balancing workloads for project team members. Once the exercise is complete, we will discuss key considerations for team member workload balancing. The final portion of this webinar will be a discussion of two tools for Lean Six Sigma Practitioners to leverage when creating project teams.
Upon completion of this webinar, participants will:
- Understand resource over exploitation and the impact on their projects
- Facilitate the resource management exercise with their stakeholders
- Construct a resource management matrix
- Construct a kanban system to prevent over utilizing team members
