Issues of HRD. Symposium.
This document contains three papers from a symposium on issues of human resource development (HRD). "The Complex Roots of Human Resource Development" (Monica Lee) discusses the roots of HRD within the framework of the following views of management: (1) classic (the view that managers must be able to create appropriate rules and procedures for others, be good judges of people, and able to take independent action); (2) scientific (the view that, with the right training, anyone can acquire good management techniques); (3) processual (the view assuming that the economic advantage will come to those who are best able to spot opportunities, learn rapidly, and create appropriate commitment among colleagues); and (4) phenomenological (the view that management is mainly about the "study of being"). "HRD Literature: Where Is It Published?" (Larry M. Dooley) explores whether HRD professionals are continuing to publish primarily in the same five journals identified in 1994 as containing the majority of all HRD manuscripts published. "Post-Millennial Discourses of Organizational Spirituality: The Critical Role of HRD" (Sharon Turnbull) analyzes the growing interest in spirituality inside organizations and concludes that, by "colluding with the desire to colonize spirituality as a new management function," HRD practitioners may inadvertently destroy the very meaning that the spirituality movement is pursuing. The first and third papers include substantial bibliographies. (MN)
