Managing the HRD Function. Symposium 32. [AHRD Conference, 2001].
This document contains three papers on managing the human resource development (HRD) function. "The Relationship between Factors Impacted by the Current Economic Crisis and Human Resource Development Roles and Functions in Thailand" (Chiraprapha Tan Akaraborworn, Gary N. McLean) presents data indicating that the current economic crisis in Thailand has had no significant impact on HRD roles and functions. "Testing the Appropriateness of the Gap Service-Management Model to the HRD Function in Organizations" (Shirine L. Mafi, Ronald L. Jacobs, David A. Collier) reports on an ex post facto study in which the appropriateness of the Gap Service-Management Model to the HRD function in organizations was examined by using the model to gauge employee satisfaction with HRD outcomes based on a series of gaps that occurred during the delivery of an HRD service. The research confirmed that the instruments developed for the study are indeed valid as diagnostic tools. "A Study of HRD Concepts, Structure of HRD Departments, and HRD Practices in India" (T.V. Rao, Raju Rao) reports on a study that included audits of eight Indian organizations and established that, in India, the HRD function is not well structured, is inadequately differentiated, and is poorly staffed. All three papers include substantial bibliographies. (MN)
