History of the RMI

The RMI was founded by RTM Consulting, LLC, a Belcan Company, a pioneering company in resource and workforce management. With years of providing consulting and training services to companies around the world, RTM Consulting observed an ongoing need for the standardization of resource and workforce management strategies, practices and processes. RTM Consulting developed three paths to meeting this need:

2. Developed the Resource Management Certified Professional (RMCP)® program in 2014 to promote and support competency development for resource and workforce management professionals.

3. Created the Resource Management Institute (RMI) in 2016 to provide a community for thought leadership, best practices, tools and networking opportunities in order to help resource and workforce management professionals continue to evolve and better manage human capital and utilization.
