Every year, organizations stop delivering projects and begin the necessary steps to support development of the annual forecast for the board and shareholders. For companies that do not have a forecasting culture, this is a labor intensive exercise that includes meetings, spreadsheets and number crunching. For other companies, those that plan on a periodic basis, this exercise is a slightly more rigorous version of their normal operations. One thing is certain--the annual operating plan must be supported by a delivery plan, which always includes an enterprise staffing forecast.

Common Business Problems

ResourceFirstprovides a single system for managing program level financials, utilization, delivery success and other target objectives. Labor and non-labor financials are driven from forecasted data or actual results as posted against subordinate projects. Multiple baselines and scenarios can be captured for future recall and analysis. ResourceFirst also provides a scenario analysis module which provides levers for optimizing the value of each portfolio, including net present value (NPV). Most importantly, all of the program financials and business analytics form a credible operational foundation of strategy, allocation and execution.
