Who is driving these HRD programmes? Where do the ideas of the programmes
This is why we are so interested in looking at the specific topics they
incorporate in their curriculum. We have noticed that they are influenced
by the Anglo-Saxon and American literature. If you look at the materials
and read some of the books or studies you will find all the big names that
appear in the United States and the UK, and a bit from Germany - that's
about it in the literature.
Which elements of HRD we had before 1989 could be transferred to the new
Cseh, Béla Krisztián, Zsolt Nemeskéri
Specifically, we can think of the management/ leadership development programmes
that existed before; these were quite advanced. A lot of ideas from the
Anglo-Saxon and American know-how were incorporated in these earlier programmes
and some of them are used in today’s management/leadership development.
The new organisations that invested in Hungary brought with them their
own systems, so you didn't have too much of a choice of a Hungarian approach.
Because this is the way in which the global organisations operate all around
the world: they are going to invest in a country, and they bring with them
their own systems.
now have studies about cultural differences à la Hofstede and so
on, and we are trying, when we work with organisations that are investing
in Hungary, to understand these patterns, the typologies of cultural differences.
