Organizational Planning

When you have a WBS list of customized activities that match the life cycle you have chosen for a project, you are ready to assign resources to them. But there are several important dimensions to the resource assignment process. For every activity in the project, you have to understand what the responsibilities and authority are and determine how the person performing the activity will be held accountable for results. You have to arrange and describe reporting relationships and roles on certain tasks. You have to balance career goals with project needs, optimize human interaction, and minimize barriers to achievement. These are not easy tasks for any project manager.

The project manager is responsible for the planning necessary to staff the project, which includes the functions of:

® Identifying and documenting the project roles and skills needed; ® Assigning responsibilities to individuals; ® Establishing reporting relationships.
