The resource management, consists in the efficient management of these means, which can be both tangible and intangible. The objective of the administration of resources is that they allow the satisfaction of interests.
The people, the money, the technology, and even the weather can be considered, depending on the context, as resources that can be managed. The correct assignment of functions of each of these resources will help to make the operation of a set more efficient.
Within any company, when talking about resource management is talking about the correct management, use, and development.
Four types of resource management fundamentals.
Financial: When we refer to them, we are mentioning all the monetary resources that are fundamental to the development of the company in question. These can be of two kinds, such as cash and shares; or third parties, such as bonds, loans granted by banks or the various types of loans.
Materials: All of those assets, of a tangible type, that the entity owns and that allow it to provide the services it carries out, are included under said umbrella. Starting from this meaning, we would find two clearly defined groups of resources: those related to the facilities (offices, factories, tools) and the raw materials, within whose name the already elaborated products would also be included.
Technicians: In this case, they are the resources that are fundamental to be able to coordinate and manage other types of resources. In this way, we would find elements such as trademarks and patents, production systems, sales mechanisms.
Humans: When managing this type of resources, which come to be the set of employees of a company, the people in charge of this task is fundamental to take into account many aspects related to those such as skills, ideas, knowledge, needs, development, feelings, experience, burdens.
The administration of human resources is one of the most important fields of a company. It is responsible for choosing, hiring, training, and retaining the employees of an organization.
The function of human resource management (which can be left to a person or a department) is to motivate workers to perform at their maximum capacity and to make the group of employees function as a block in pursuit of corporate goals.
Leadership, internal communication, teamwork, and negotiation skills are some of the factors that should be addressed by the administration of human resources.
It’s significant to keep in mind that resources are finite and have to serve to satisfy virtually infinite needs. The administration of resources is key to success.
