Human Resources Development is written with the primary purpose of covering core and emerging issues in Human Resource Development. The book's secondary purpose is to offer a specific perspective on HRD, one that links the practice of HRD to enhancing organizational strategy and developing performance capability through learning interventions. This text begins with a strategic view of the organization from a general management perspective as a driver for the HRD function -specifically creating a focus on strategic learning and developing performance throughout the organization. The goal of the text is to provide learners with a framework to understand the role of HRD in the strategic imperatives of an organization, the foundations of HRD practice, and stimulate debate as to the role of HRD in today's organizations.
