Resource Management Question
Using the PMO SmartSheet template, I have created a PMO to organize all of our Information Technology projects.
It is working well and rolling up to the Portfolio Level. What I am struggling with and need advise on is my IT team has a lot of little projects that they can complete in 1-2 weeks and usually requires only one member in the team. I'm trying to avoid creating a lot of SmartSheet project plans for projects that only last up to 2 weeks and typically only have one member working on the project, but I would like to have that time roll up in the PMO so it can be seen on the Portfolio Metrics and be accounted for in the Resource View.
I assume this may be the case in other IT departments too where you have long very resource intensive projects, but then a lot of little ones.
Any ideas on how I can simplify and not have to create a project plan for every small project, but still have that time somehow in SmartSheet so the Resource Views are more accurate?
Any help would be appreciated.
