Charting the Future of HRD. Symposium 8. [Concurrent Symposium Session at AHRD Annual Conference, 2000.]
This packet contains three papers from a symposium on the future of human resource development. The first paper, "Should We Define the Profession of HRD? Views of Leading Scholars" (Wendy E. A. Ruona), explores whether human resource development (HRD) should be defined and why, which was one theme that emerged from a qualitative study of beliefs of leading HRD scholars. The second, "Strategic Roles of Human Resource Development in the New Millennium" (Richard A. Swanson) discusses the foundations of strategic intent for HRD, the schools of strategic thinking, the strategic roles for HRD, and their implications for strategic organizational planning. The final paper, "Shaping a Learning Vision: Life Histories of Learning Leaders and Facilitators" (Karen E. Watkins, Victoria J. Marsick, Linda Honold, and Judy O'Neil), draws on life history interviews with learning organization facilitators to identify transforming events that shaped the learning visions of these key change agents. Interviews with organization developers and senior managers of organizations working to make learning a central driver of innovation and change led to key lessons for facilitators and leaders of learning organizations. The papers contain reference sections. (KC)
