Sharing Resources Among Projects

Creating a resource pool can be useful if you don't use Project Server and you work with the same resources on multiple projects. A resource pool is a set of resources that are available to any project. You can use resources exclusively on one project, or you can share the resources among several projects.

If you work in an environment in which several project managers use the same set of resources on various projects, consider using a resource pool. Setting up a resource pool in Project can be a good way to schedule resources and resolve resource conflicts.

See Chapter 10 for more information on other techniques that you can employ to resolve resource conflicts. See Chapter 19 for information about using the Enterprise Global Resources feature of Project Server.
