Total Resource Management is understanding the relationship among all of the resources, activities, and external influences; evaluating the impact of decisions; planning, organizing, implementing and controlling all activities to best accomplish goals and objectives; and accurately forecasting and maintaining flexibility to change quickly to optimize the outcome and reduce risks of decisions made. The natural resource manager must be exceptional at some aspect to survive. The sustainability of renewable natural resources, by both individual and community, requires putting it all together as best possible and improving and adapting with experience. In other words, TRM involves thinking, planning and acting in a total resource context. Develop a total resource plan to guide decisions by comparing with actual conditions; therefore, controlling goals and objective achievement.
