Resource Dependence Theory

This is the theory that argues that the goal of an organization is to minimize its dependence on other organizations for the supply of scarce resources in its environment and to find ways of influencing them to make resources available. Thus an organization must simultaneously manage two aspects of its resource dependence: 1) it has to exert influence over organizations so that it can obtain resources, and 2) it must respond to the needs and demands of other organizations in its environment.
