More than 4 weeks availability
Human Resource Development brings together an internationally recognised 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 will identify the theoretical and empirical starting points, and outline the context, history, and current utilisation. Theoretical critique is enhanced by practical examples, providing a critical, but highly accessible examination of contemporary HRD practice.
John Walton is Professor in Human Resource Development (HRD) in the London Metropolitan University Business School, UK. Claire Valentin is a Lecturer and Programme Director in the Dept of Higher and Community Education at the University of Edinburgh, UK.
