A stimulating look at human resource development, providing the broadest treatment of the field available in published form. The Second Edition, revised to reflect the rapid pace of change in this fast-growing field, is divided into five parts. The first provides an overview and history of HRD, with chapters devoted to such topics as managing the HRD function, financial aspects of HRD, the role of the HRD consultant, and the design of HRD learning programs. The second discusses areas in which HRD programs are used, such as sales, management, federal government, and labor unions. Section three is concerned with HRD outside of the United States, and there are chapters devoted to Latin America, Africa, Asia, and other regions. The fourth part is concerned with human resource areas related to HRD, such as human resource management, organization development, and career development. Finally, it closes with a look at the future of HRD.
