With the rapid development of information and communication technology, modern business activities become increasingly dependent on Information Resource Management (IRM). To manage implemented information resources successfully in practice, one great challenge facing the management team is how to deal with various mismatches between information provider and information user. In this paper, the substance of IRM challenges on mismatches is clarified, and a dual loop model is designed to deal with the issue on mismatches. The contribution of this paper will be twofold: one is to set up a sound management mechanism for promoting information resources management, the other one is to create adaptable information resources in practice.
