Combing a set or resource managment specific proceses such as a skills data base, a forecasting mechanism, skills mix management, services automation tools e.g. PSA and more help create an ecosystem designed to maximize efficient use of resources. We also have found that there are advantages to further centralizing the view into certain practice level skills where a degree of commonality can be found.
