In working with resource managers in other services organizations and internal IT departments, one of the key issues they continue to struggle with is effectively aligning the supply of resources with future demand. The Resource Management Institute, which we founded just last year, provides an industry vehicle to advance the discipline of Resource Management and further the interests of the Resource Management community.
- RMI is actively engaged in setting up professional standards and resource management standards, conducting research and providing access to information and resources
- It has designed a certification, RMCP®, the first-of-its-kind program specifically for resource managers, promoting and supporting competency development for RM professionals
- It has trained numerous resource managers with modern resource management techniques that helped their organizations drive billable utilization improvements of 5 to 20% – saving millions of dollars annually
- One of the great benefits of joining the RMI (it’s free to join by the way) is the opportunity to connect with your peers in the same industry and engage with members for educational and networking events
