Optimizing Human Resources: Readings in Individual and Organization Development.
Lippitt, Gordon L., Ed.; And Others
The objective of putting together this collection of readings are: (1) to organize the many diverse changes in the human resource development field, (2) to establish links between new and old trends in this field, (3) to choose areas that are on the "cutting edge" of human resource development, and (4) to present different points of view about the key areas. The first chapter focuses on trends in society and sets a backdrop for the field of human resource development. Chapter 2 covers briefly the research, theory, and guidelines on how people learn and change. A systems approach to developing human resources is the focus of Chapter 3. In Chapter 4, the field of organization development or renewal is discussed. Chapter 5 deals with laboratory training in developing human potential. In Chapter 6, focus is placed on developing specialized groups. The potential benefits to be found in changing the structure, nature, and expectations of one's job are examined in Chapter 7. Chapter 8 deals with the methods of evaluating the results of human resource development. Finally, Chapter 9 attempts to put into perspective the emerging needs, roles, and qualifications of specialists in human resource development. (Author/CK)
