The Systems Resource Model
The systems resource model analyzes the decision-makers's capability to efficiently distribute resources among various subsystem's needs. The systems resources model defines the organization as a network of interrelated subsystems.
These subsystems needs may be classified as:
- bargaining position -ability of the organization to exploit its environment in acquisition of scarce and valued resources;
- ability of the systems' decision-makers to perceive, and correctly interpret, the real properties of the external environment;
- ability of the system to produce a certain specified output;
- maintenance of internal day-to-day activities;
- ability of the organization to co-ordinate relationships among the various subsystems;
- ability of the organization to respond to feedback regarding its effectiveness in the environment.
- ability of the organization to evaluate the effect of its decisions;
- ability of the organization' system to accomplish its goals.
