Bermant, M.; And Others
This study provides a tool for describing, analyzing, and evaluating the effectiveness of human resources development (HRD) systems and their components. It is intended for policy makers, planners, and senior officials from government, employers', and workers' organizations who have responsibilities in human resources development. The first part depicts human resources development and utilization as a comprehensive feedback system and shows the interdependence between different subsystems and components. The second part describes a hierarchical set of policies (a policy tree) that governs HRD. Each major HRD policy area is disaggregated into its constituting elements and analyzed. The policy areas are enrollment, training, and entry into work. At different levels of aggregation, the goals of an HRD policy are identified, highlighting how the goals of various components are formulated and how they could be achieved. This part also identifies and defines selected quantitative and qualitative indicators in an endeavor to measure, assess, and compare training efforts. A 58-page checklist for analyzing HRD policy is appended. (YLB)
