Human resource development : practices and orthodoxies

Human Resource Development brings together an internationally recognized group of contributors to provide a critical overview of contemporary concepts, practices and orthodoxies in human resource development (HRD). The book focuses on four key areas of HRD thinking and practice; formative concepts; training and development interventions; career development practices; and team development practices. Each chapter identifies theoretical and empirical starting points, and outlines the context, history, and current utilization. Theoretical critique is enhanced by practical examples, providing a critical, but highly accessible examination of contemporary HRD practice. -- from back cover
