HRD in Latin America. Symposium 5. [AHRD Conference, 2001].
This document contains three papers on human resource development (HRD) in Latin America. "Looking at the Literature on Workplace Democracy in Latin America: Factors in Favor and Against It" (Max U. Montesino) discusses selected issues related to workplace democracy in Latin America and identifies salient issues for further research, including the following: the magnitude of work democracy experiments in the region; the scope of workplace democracy; the process of learning self-direction in the context of Latin America's managerial culture; and the implications of the lack of evolution of Latin American managerial culture. "Toward a New HRD Organizational Model" (Jules K. Beck) argues that increased economic growth in Asian and European markets will one day place the Americas at a competitive disadvantage unless an new international model emerges that can better harness labor to strengthen the hemispheric economic engine. "Differences in Priority for Competencies Trained between U.S. and Mexican Trainers" (Larry M. Dooley; Kenneth E. Paprock, In-Sun Shim, Elsa Gonzalez Y Gonzalez) examines the differences in competencies for training programs between Mexican and U.S. companies and discusses the implications of these differences for implementation of the North American Free Trade Agreement. All three papers include substantial bibliographies. (MN)
