Sharing Rather than Dividing of Resources
 
 
The systems that many organization use to make decision about the future and to commit resources to support those decisions is budgeting. Hence many managers are preoccupied with determining what resources they have to work with. Then, on the basis of that, they decide what they can do in the future. They ask, “What resources do we have under our control and what options do they allow us to pursue?” The central theme in this orientation is the need to identify and control the resources available.
 

Another system or orientation that many organizations are beginning to take seriously looks at the opportunities dictated by changing environments as the true starting point for making future decisions. Managers with this orientation ask, “What opportunities are available to us?” Only after settling on a range of opportunities do they address the issue of resources: “What resources do we need [not ‘’’’’control;’’] in order to pursue favorable opportunities?”. The manager who takes this approach seeks to borrow or temporarily use resources, not to own and control them. Resources are viewed simply as a means of pursuing attractive opportunities, not as things to accumulate as a source of organizational power. Manages in firms that employ this type of systems use company resources (people, facilities, money, capacity, technology, and marketing capability) only as long as they are needed. And because it is critical to make resources available in time for managers to seize the opportunities they discover, this system encourages access to resources in a manner that reduces paper work, levels of management through which decisions must travel, and the extent of “political” activity necessary to secure resources. Many people feel that this orientation – sharing rather than owning resources will be the most effective orientation for organization designs of the future.
