The Power of Local Resources in Microsoft Project Server

If you haven’t understood or considered using local resources in a Microsoft Project Server environment, this is a must read. A local resource in Project is a non-enterprise resource. In other words, a local resource doesn't reside in a Project Server Enterprise Resource Pool. How is a local resource used? In certain situations, a project manager may need to account for work in a project that isn't being provided by enterprise resources. A local resource can be a contract resource, a business resource, or even a unique generic resource that doesn't exist in a Project Server environment. Using local resources can help project managers enhance their project plans when more resource options are needed than what is available in an enterprise resource list.
