Other possibility is to extend the scope of search within the organization and look for the required resources in other departments, offices and even offices in other countries, this option has benefits of being economical, comparatively faster and motivating for employees. But identifying the right resources on the basis of required skill sets is only possible if organization is using a collaborative resource scheduling and planning tool that captures and maintains comprehensive profiles of all the resources across the organization that can share resource information (skill sets, commitments, availability etc...) in real time so that efficient resource scheduling and utilization (Visit to know more) can become a reality.
