The paradigm of employee management has undergone rapid transformation in the last decade, from comparative advantage to a state of continuous innovation, strategic intent and a holistic knowledge framework. This implies that to be successful, organisations have to develop and/ or seriously re-look at appropriate HRD strategies to tap the human potential within the organisation and align it with the overall corporate strategy. In an increasingly difficult global business scenario, where major decisions have gone awry plunging the world into an economic crisis, HRD professionals are compelled to grapple with progressively more complex issues. It is against this backdrop, that an attempt has been made to present the entire contemporary conceptual framework of human resource development in a refreshingly new style so as to facilitate devising of appropriate strategies for the organisation. Fortunately, there is a rich and growing base of theory, research, and practical experience in HRD efforts. This book has been written to help students, HRD professionals, and managers at all levels to take advantage of this. If they do so, they will increase their effectiveness, along with that of individuals with whom they work and the organisations of which they are a part. The book will serve primarily as a comprehensive text for undergraduate and graduate courses in business, management, public administration, educational administration, and other related fields. This, the FOURTH edition of the book, is a thoroughly revised and enlarged version that has been updated to reflect the thinking on HRD theory and practice that has taken place over the last few years. Some of the new features and improvements include: * New, contemporary case studies; * Discussion of recent thinking about the nature of managerial work, strategic management development, global management development, competency-based management education and development, and new practices in leadership and executive development; * Ideas, references and events updated right upto March, 2009; * Humorous cartoons; clearer, more explanatory diagrams. At the same time, care has been taken to maintain the elements that have made the previous editions a useful and meaningful resource to students and practitioners, including uncluttered writing, a comprehensive approach to HRD, a strong research base, and a balance between theory, research, and practice.(c) Alternatives generating function: The consultant is not as much for working out a specific solution as for helping the ...
