Requesting feedback on setting up Resource Pools

Just wondering how other companies are using resource pools? Are you basing the resource pools by role, organization, by team, etc?

What have you found to work best?

THANKS.

Re: Requesting feedback on setting up Resource Pools

Hi
If in your organisation there is a general manager of resources it is better to use a uniform pool for all. If resources are assigned by the chief of department it is better to do a pool on org units and to put the manager of a resource pool of the chief of department.
To do a resource pool on roles it is not meaningful, since the system allows to search for a resource with a demanded role.
As a team it is better to use staffing profile which uses resources from the general pool
