Space, employees, and equipment Organizations have limited resources What kinds of resources are necessary? How much of a resource is needed? Who can make use of the resource? How can it be made available to consumers? Management becomes an issue of scale Is a given resource really available? How do we define effective use? October 22nd, CS410 Blue Team 2013
