Developing People

Based on Human Resource Management, 4th edition, by Alan Price

This section examines human resource development (HRD) at a number of levels. If people are truly 'our greatest asset' and are the key to 'competitive advantage' we must have mechanisms in place to enhance their capabilities and provide opportunities for learning and development. We focus on a number of key issues, including:

  1. What is human resource development?
  2. How and why does vocational learning vary between different countries?
  3. What is the role of self-development?
  4. What are the major differences between training and learning?
  5. Is the 'learning organization' a meaningful concept?
  6. Do trainers have a role in the context of strategic HRD?
  7. Is online learning useful and cost-effective?
  8. How can we evaluate learning experiences?
