In my notes I have shown that the resource program concept provides a highly dynamic framework for thinking and acting on issues of social change.
While in the management literature, the program concept is usually seen as an instrument to achieve the objectives of an institutional agency, I have argued for applying the program concept in a much broader societal context, in which there is room for an autonomous and intermediary position, not bound by any specific organisational mandate.
My notes demonstrated that the resource program concept enables its users to enter into a symbiotic relationship with the overall institutional fabric and to play a crucial role in widely supported processes of social change. I elaborated on the comprehensive, complex and multifunctional character of the concept.
Based on my notes, the conclusion is, therefore, justified that the resource concept is well suited to helping to shape transition processes in a structural manner, and contributing to a more sustainable society.
