Practical: Resource Budget
1- Assign resources to tasks:
a. Prepare a list of resources that you may need for each task in the project in a table. Resources are physical resources: material and equipment, and human resources (people). Example of physical resources: lab (equipment), office, studio, print shop, papers sheets (material), envelopes, cards, etc. Example of human resources are project manager, engineer, sound engineer, media producer, officer, event planner, print shop technician, media developer, Photoshop developer, etc.
