HRD in Asia. Symposium 3. [AHRD Conference, 2001].
This document contains three papers on human resource development (HRD) in Asia. "The Experiences of HRD Professionals Participating in Continuing Professional Development in Taiwan" (Yu-Shu [Jason] Chen) reports on a study that was based on the method of hermeneutic phenomenology and conducted to describe and interpret the experiences of Taiwanese HRD professionals participating in continuing professional development. "What Is It Like to Be a Taiwanese HR Practitioner Performing HRD Tasks?" (Ya-Hui [Bella] Lien, Gary N. McLean) discusses the following themes, which were identified during an interpretive study in which seven HRD professionals were interviewed about their daily work experiences as HRD practitioners: (1) HRD is one aspect of human resource management; (2) HRD is equated with training in Taiwan; and (3) HRD success relies on the visions and support of top management. "A Study of Human Resource Development in Indigenous Firms and Multinational Corporations in East and Southeast Asia" (Kenneth R. Bartlett, John J. Lawler, Johngseok Bae, Shyh-Jer Chen, Tai Wai David Wan) presents a comparative study that revealed significant differences in the attitudes of HRD professionals toward provision of short-term and longer-term job-related training in multinational and locally owned corporations in four Southeast Asian countries. All three papers include substantial bibliographies. (MN)
