Resource planning is an important part of project planning and implementation. Identifying resources with the right skills and availability to do the work requires intense cooperation between project managers and resource managers. Other names for resource managers are functional managers, line managers and team leaders. Resource managers lead groups of people with similar skills, and these people usually work on several projects at once.
