The Resource Management Process

Why a resource management process?

All business processes need capable resources and clearly the planning, acquisition, maintenance and disposal of these resources would not be part of demand creation or fulfilment as resources is not an output of these processes. There is therefore a need for a process that manages the organization’s resources and so we might as well call this the Resource management process. One might divide this into the three separate processes of Human Resource Management , Physical Resource Management and Financial Resource Management.


Specifies, acquires and maintains the resources required by the business to fulfil the mission and disposes of any resources that are no longer required
