The challenge of capacity management
In most companies there are more tasks than necessary resources. In practice, it must therefore be decided regularly what work can and should be done. Usually the things that are then sacrificed are internal projects such as improvements or further developments. In the short term, their loss is often manageable, but in the long term, it can become a matter of fate because competitors are passing you by in terms of technology, quality and service.
This problem cannot be solved with a simple project management, in which priority, planned effort and executing staff are used. This type of planning is often very inflexible. If an already existing schedule has to be adjusted, this often has an effect far beyond the actual project. The increased resource requirements must be compensated for elsewhere. You quickly become a driven person who puts your own strategic company goals on the back burner and only reacts. This is how customer projects run, but your own company stagnates. Employees also suffer from increased pressure, feel rushed and overstrained.
