The paper "Developing a Resource Workflow System " is an outstanding example of a management research proposal. A need for resource workflow system (RWS) aimed at successful management of different projects is long overdue. The aim of this research was to develop a project management system for successful project management. Yet, there is a paucity of agreement regarding a system that acts as a standardized way where project management processes will be able to track and report resource management and project management related activities. Conceptually, this research argued that project management systems should be aimed at strategic automation of projects.
Methodologically, the research explored issues related to project management successes and specifically, automation towards optimised and streamlined project management processes through automated workflows. Keyword: resource workflow system, project management, automation, project system Chapter One: Introduction A distinguishing feature of successful project management is the emphasis on a resource management system rather than individual human resource practices. A well-executed resource management system remains as the driver of organizational and individual performance. Yet, there is a paucity of research-based evidence that detail the extent to which a resource management system helps in the success of project management.
While studies have attempted to design a system based on resource workflow, the aim has fallen short of a successful resource that manages different projects. Recent studies have focused on the fundamental principles of strategic human resource management (Badiru and Osisanya 2016). The rationale for this perspective has been clear. Studies have been concerned with project managers as the determinants of successful project management. Considering the fact that project management practices have become rare if ever, used in isolation, continuous failure to consider the significance of a resource management system means that project managers are living in a period where they fail to focus on patterns of project management activities and deployment.
