HRD Theory. Symposium 15. [AHRD Conference, 2001].
This symposium on human resource development (HRD) theory consists of three presentations. "The Real Debate: Who Does HRD Serve?" (Wendy E.A. Ruona) finds three distinctive sets of beliefs about who/what HRD serves, namely that HRD serves individuals, organizations, and multiple stakeholders. "Theorizing HRD" (Jim McGoldrick, Jim Stewart, Sandra Watson) attempts to derive a conceptual "map" of HRD in the United Kingdom and does not present a particular position on HRD. "HRD as a Factor in the Inevitable Move to Globalization" (Gary N. McLean), an opinion piece, explores the implications for HRD of globalization. Concluding that globalization is inevitable, the paper makes recommendations for HRD's role, with emphasis on integrity in the process. All three papers include substantial bibliographies. Two of the papers include substantial bibliographies. (YLB)
