Explanation:
obviously develop here doesn't make much sense but 'développe' can also mean 'faire appel à' in the snese of being free to take what measures or call on such people as he needs to manage the work.

neutral  Nikki Scott-Despaigne: Given the formal context, a depersonlaized formulation would be more appropriate : take whatever steps are necessary. Also, not quite sure we know the meaning of "développe" here. This may be a sufficiently neutral solution.
