Human resource plan for projects

A human resource plan is a document that provides guidance on how the human resources required for a project should be defined , staffed , managed, controlled , and eventually released after the end of the project.


It includes the components neccesary for developing cost estimates such as the project staffing attributes, personnel rates , and it’s related rewards and recognition .


The plan illustrates the project’s organisational structure and includes the staffing management plan that describes the project management team’s approach to managing the increase and decrease of project stuff across the project life cycle.
