What is a resource task matrix?

A resource and task matrix organizes the performance of tasks by different people or departments, and can also show which resources will be needed for a task. It consists of a table with a list of resources (people, departments, or other resources) in the leftmost column and a series of tasks listed in the top row.

If a resource plays a part in a task, the corresponding cell is marked with a symbol representing the kind of participation the resource will apply: if it's a person, he or she may have primary responsibility, be a team member, or provide additional resources.

A resource task matrix is useful for complex projects that often share resources. If resources are limited, this matrix can assist in organizing tasks using the same resource efficiently.
