International HRD Perspectives.
The first of the four papers in this symposium, "Towards a Meaningful HRD [Human Resource Development] Function in the Post-Command Economies of Central and Eastern Europe" (Devi Jankowicz), examines the existing knowledge-base among managers who are to be trained as HRD practitioners and suggests that efforts may be constrained by concepts of knowledge transfer and resistance to change which are flawed. "The Impact of Human Resource Development on the Winter War between Finland and the Soviet Union, 1939-1940" (John A. Niemi, Ville Nurmi) examines HRD activities that had an impact on the performance of the Finnish army in the Winter War with the Soviet Union, based on a model that accounts for the various HRD elements as well as for outside forces that affected the conduct of the war. "Designing Effective Training Program for International Transfer" (Doo H. Lim), used a Korean organization to examine the effect of training design on the transfer of HRD training for a global company. Analysis of 10 case studies of application of a conceptual model of international transfer of training revealed several reasons for high or low learning and transfer of training, including the need to improve the quality of training design and delivery, the use of diverse instructional methods and stimuli, and the instructor's sensitivity to cultural differences. "Cross Cultural Effectiveness" (Carey C. Coghill) describes cross-cultural conflict situations and illuminates factors that may be affecting cross-cultural transition and effectiveness. (KC)
