Improve Time to Market with the Resources You Have Today

Improve Time to Market with the Resources You Have Today

Earlier this year, Planview sponsored the Resource Management and Capacity Planning Benchmark Study 2013, where more than 280 globally-based product development executives shared their top pain points, business risks, pain causes, software impacts, and process improvements for resource management and capacity planning.

In the latest edition of the PDMA Visions Magazine is the article Improve Time to Market with the Resources You Have Today: Key Results from the Product Development View of the Resource Management and Capacity Planning Study, where I share several key findings from this study as well as applications for organizations worldwide.

The study was examined using the lens of the Resource Management and Capacity Planning Maturity Model, which grouped organizations into three levels based off of their capacity planning and resource management performance. Additionally, each level was found to have unique risks, pain points, and needs.

In the article, I also offer several practical steps that can be utilized to move an organization up the scale, which leads to improved and more efficient product development processes. Specifically, the study found that mature organizations experience:

  • 27% better visibility into capacity
  • 22% improved visibility into demand
  • More than 10% reduction in the risk of delayed time to market
  • 10% lower risk of relying on inaccurate data for decision making

I encourage you to read the full article in the latest edition of PDMA Visions and for deeper insight into this topic; you can download a full copy of the study.

I’d like to hear from you. What methods are you using to improve time to market? Share by leaving a comment below.
