Investment and Capacity Planning uses robust analysis to allow you to make better decisions on which program and project investments to approve based on financial and capacity targets. It allows for prioritization and scenario-modeling, and provides a time-phased display of demand and/or revenue information for continued analysis of new and approved investments. Investment and Capacity Planning is an iterative process that can be done annually, quarterly, monthly, or as needed (though ongoing planning is recommended). From a capacity planning perspective, the available resource capacity (typically by role and resource type) is compared with the requested demand to encourage informed planning decisions with capacity in mind.
Self-paced courses on investment and capacity planning are available in the Planview Training Academy.
