Research Issues in HRD. Symposium 34. [AHRD Conference, 2001].
This symposium on research issues in human resource development (HRD) consists of three presentations. "The Influence of Theories of Action on Action Research Initiatives: One Dying Division's Case" (Linda Neavel Dickens) reports an interpretive case study to illuminate how individual, team, and organizational practices and theories of action influence participation in, and outcomes of, action research initiatives. Findings suggest that participants designed and implemented actions that resulted in unintended consequences, limited learning, and, ultimately, the demise of the action research team. "Women's Ways of Knowing: A Conceptual Framework for HRD Research" (Yvonne M. Johnson) is a feminist essay that seeks to expand the HRD literature by using such a conceptual framework to analyze a study abroad experience. "A Critical Review of Research and Statistical Methodologies Within HRD Quarterly (HRDQ), Academy of Management Journal (AMJ), and Personnel Psychology, 1995-99" (Heather A Williams) reviews articles in the three journals for 1995-99 and in the AMJ for 1975-79, to identify the most used research methods and trends in 1995-99, to compare methodologies between the HRDQ and AMJ samples, to describe recent HRD research, and to determine whether HRD as a discipline is at a developmental point similar to that of the discipline management during 1975-79. All three papers include bibliographies. (YLB)
