Another new article has been posted to the Project Smart site. This one is entitled... "Getting the Most Out of Your Project Resources"

Here's a partial posting and link to the full article...

"There's a school of thought that when you are faced with 'Project Everest', you can climb it faster if you put more people to work on it. Of course, the Everest metaphor is a perfect example of why this approach is flawed. Although tempting, adding more people to a project in crisis is not necessarily going to help you get it back on track. Good resource management is about more than juggling your staff numbers. It is about understanding who your resources are and how to use them intelligently. It is appreciating that in many circumstances, quality is better for a project than quantity."

It is great reading....I highly recommend that you check it out and share your own thoughts by commenting on the article. The full article can be found here...
