Conférence donnée en anglais/Presentation in English


The creative use of resources is a valuable organizational and management skill.  An organization’s ability to compete and succeed may depend on the ability to use recognized resources in new and different ways as well as the ability to develop new resources.  A central claim of the resourcing perspective is that resources are only potentials until they are put into use. This observation may seem obvious and inconsequential, but the implications are not.  In this talk, I explore the implications of making action explicit in three organizational perspectives on resources: resource dependence, resource-based view of the firm and resources in institutional theory.   I show how taking a resourcing view (making the role of action explicit) in each of these theories enables us to make three shifts consequential for organizational scholars and people managing organizations.
