HRD Models in Europe.
This document contains two papers from a symposium on human resource development (HRD) in Europe moderated by Wim Nijhof at the 1996 conference of the Academy of Human Resource Development. "HRD Roles in Germany" (Linda E. Odenthal, Wim J. Nijhof) reports on a German study based on a study of the job profiles of HRD practitioners in the United States. The study suggests an impression of new or changed HRD roles as well as a role profile for the German instructor/facilitator. "HRD Roles in Finland--Preliminary Results" (Tuija Valkeavaara) investigates the typical roles of Finnish HRD practitioners, using a survey based on American Society for Training and Development models for HRD with 461 Finnish practitioners. Survey results showed that the most important HRD roles in Finland seem to be similar to the roles in other European countries. The role of organizational change agent was selected as the most important role, reflecting the current situation in working life. Organizational work context and educational background did not seem to be associated with the role. Papers contain references. (KC)
