HRD Town Forum--An AHRD Tradition.
This document contains a symposium paper on human resource development (HRD). "Human Resource Development Research: Is Anyone Listening?" (Gary N. McLean), discusses the following: discrepancies between HRD "best practices" described in the HRD research and those found in business; the causes of the "disconnect" that exists between researchers and practitioners at several levels; and strategies that HRD practitioners, organizations, and the business community can use to improve connections between researchers and practitioners (including research-business partnerships, identify creative funding approaches to enhance funding available for HRD research, have professional HRD organizations assume more responsibility for creating bridging opportunities, make greater use of electronic media to disseminate research findings, use cost-benefit analysis to evaluate research proposals; and provide HRD practitioners with coursework in research).
