Assigning Resources

The task of assigning resources is critical to ensuring the success of a project. It is up to the project manager to determine what sort of resources are needed for a project, and after indentifying these resources to ensure that they are available for a project. It is necessary to balance the availability and costs of resources against project schedules to determine how to assign these resources, and to monitor the project throughout the duration to ensure that resources have been properly allocated and are being used effectively. When resources are not properly assigned at the beginning of a project, or are not properly managed throughout the duration of the project, it can lead to slowed project times or even complete failure of the project.
