Target Annual Utilization = 85%
On the bench 3 months, utilization is 0%.
On a project 9 months, working 60 hours but can only bill 40 (under-estimated, over-allocated), recorded utilization can only be 100%.
Actual utilization for the year = +115% -> blew utilization target out of the water
“Great, Utilization Bonus Time!”
Recorded utilization for the year = ~77% -> didn’t meet target
“What the…, Low to No Utilization Bonus?”
