In Part 1 of this two part series on stopping to replan a troubled implementation, we began looking at the reasons to take such action as well as the major impacts to a project for doing so. Now let’s look ahead to what our resource, data and feedback requirements will be in order to get replanned and restarted on the right course to project success.
Determine resource requirements and their availability for resource planning?
Any replanning effort is going to require you to revisit the resource plan for your project. If timeframes shift, then key resources may not be available for the full duration of your project and you may need to start looking for new or additional resources early to be proactive. Rework the resource plan and forecast and ensure that you’ll have the right resources and skill sets available when you need them according to your reworked project schedule.
