This project aims to develop a holistic understanding of the interaction between human and business performance. This understanding will be used to develop and organisational resource management approach that will allow balancing business and human needs.


Balancing human and business needs

A detailed investigation on human aspects such as motivation, professional development and job demands, as well as business issues such as multiple project management and resource distribution will be carried out.

These strategies will allow managers to consider ‘what if’ scenarios with the aim of holistically improving resourcing and accuracy.

The outcomes of these two projects will provide all levels of management with a new and advanced toolset to allow them to accurately model their processes and establish a more natural picture of resource use. The toolset will allow managers to identify resource bottlenecks, balance trade-off between human factors and organisation performance and improve career development paths for the mutual benefits of all.
