Linking HRD Theory and Practice. Symposium 2. [Concurrent Symposium Session at AHRD Annual Conference, 2000.]
This document contains three papers from a symposium on linking human resource development (HRD) theory and practice that was conducted as part of a conference on HRD. "Development towards What End? An Analysis of the Notion of Development for the Field of Human Resource Development" (F. Peter Kuchinke) examines the following alternative views of adult development that can serve to distinguish competing schools of thought regarding the theory and practice of HRD: the person-centered view (which aims at self-realization of the individual); the production-centered view (which focuses on organizational goals); and the view of development as principled problem solving. "A Study of the Influence of the Theoretical Foundations of Human Resource Development on Research and Practice" (Tim Hatcher) reports on a study that surveyed researchers and practitioners in the HRD academic community to determine which theoretical foundations are and will be influencing the field and which foundations are and will be most important in research and practice. "Clarifying and Defining the Performance Paradigm of Human Resource Development" (Elwood F. Holton III) proposes a definition of the performance paradigm of HRD, discusses 11 core assumptions of the paradigm, and refutes criticisms of the paradigm. All three papers contain substantial bibliographies. (MN)
