Critical Human Resource Development : Beyond Orthodoxy, Paperback

Critical Human Resource Development : Beyond Orthodoxy Paperback

Edited by Jim Stewart, Clare Rigg, Kiran Trehan


Traditionally, Human Resource Development (HRD) was focussed on enabling staff to pursue competitive advantage, but with the occurrence of high profile corporate scandals people recognising the dangers of limiting management training and development to 'technical' managerial activities have led to a surge in interest in Critical HRD.

This book is a compilation and discussion of the latest thinking and research in Critical Human Resource Development from subject-leading Editors and Contributors.

It examines and analyses the success of attempts to actually implement critical HRD in the workplace and is suitable for Postgraduate students at diploma, masters and doctorate level on both specific HRD courses, such as the CIPD modules 'Learning & Development' and 'Managing the Training and Development function' and on specialist HRD modules within generalist HRM courses.
