"This is always a challenge... limited resources to complete what seems like an unlimited supply of projects, but the more important and often overlooked challenge is realistically evaluating the resources needed to complete each project.

I would communicate with the necessary parties to gather the best estimate of total man hours needed to complete each project and translate this into dates based on the manpower I had available. I would then sit down with those responsible for approving the completion dates for the projects and present these realistic timelines. Ideally, we would come to an agreement on which projects would be completed in which order and on what dates.

I would then focus my resources on the projects as needed to meet the agreed timeline adjusting as situations required and keeping all key players informed and engaged."
