Series: Routledge Companions in Business, Management and Accounting
The field of Human Resource Development (HRD) has grown in prominence as an independent discipline from its roots in both management and education since the 1980s. There has been continual debate about the boundaries of HRD ever since.
on a wide and respected international contributor base and with a focus
on international markets,this book provides a thematic overview of current
knowledge in HRD across the globe. The text is separated into nine sections
which explore the origins of the field, adjacent and related fields, theoretical
approaches, policy perspectives, interventions, core issues and concerns,
HRD as a profession, HRD around the world, and emerging topics and future
trends. An epilogue rounds off the volume by considering the present and
future states of the discipline, and suggesting areas for further research.
