Overcommitment as a consequence of intervention may manifest itself in several ways: objectively, whereby (1) resources are exhausted in the successful accomplishment of ends while expectations remain relatively stable, or (2) resources are inadequate at the outset to meet expectations; and subjectively, whereby expectations are elevated beyond the capacity of the intervention to meet them, regardless of a rise in resources. In the objective case, the problem is due essentially to insufficient resources; in the subjective case, it is due to rising expectations regardless of resources.
