HRD Function in Organizations.
This document contains four papers from a symposium on the human resource development (HRD) function in organizations. In "Comparing Quality Profiles of Training Organizations--A Multi-Level Approach" (Martin Mulder), analysis of over 1,300 training projects indicates that variation in quality is almost entirely explained by the projects, not the training organizations. The proposed "HRD Service-Management Model" (Shirine L. Mafi, Ronald L. Jacobs) identifies potential gaps within HRD functions and during interactions with customer functions. "A Phenomenological Study of the Strengths, Weaknesses, Limitations, and Future Trends of Training and Performance Technology" (Darlene Van Tiem) gathers opinions of key leaders for the purpose of validating curriculum or making changes in a performance technology master's degree program. A survey of 92 large companies reported in "Outsourcing Training: Implications for Internal Human Resource Functions" (Lilanthi Ravishankar) found that those that outsourced some of their training functions were satisfied with the results.
