Cross-Cultural HRD. Symposium.
The first of three papers from this symposium on cross-cultural human resource development (HRD), "Determinants of Supply of Technical Training Opportunities for Human Capital Development in Kenya" (Moses Waithanji Ngware, Fredrick Muyia Nafukho) reports findings from interviews of technical training institute department heads in Kenya who identified these factors about the supply of training places: number of courses offered; amount of fees paid; and departmental capacity. (The supply of training opportunities is a major HRD issue in developing countries.) The second paper, "Dancing with the Cherokee: Reflections on Learning from the 2001 AHRD Globalization Pre-Conference" (Theresa J. Kraemer, Darren C. Short), reports the design of and participants' accounts from a visit to the Cherokee Nation, including new insights on the importance of identity and culture and the role of HRD in educating organizations about cultural ethics and globalization. The final paper, "Training Expenditures and Practices: Findings from the Netherlands" (Jan N. Streumer, A.A.M. (Ida) Wognum, C.H.E. (Kitty) Kwakman, Beatrice I.J.M. van der Heijden, Simone van Zolingen), reports findings from a survey of Dutch HRD managers who answered questions about training activities engaged in by employees in the work place. (Informal learning-while-working activities and short length formal training sessions are most popular; it is difficult to assign an exact cost figure to training; large companies spend more on training than do small companies; and the training function is moving upwards in organization hierarchies.) All three papers contain bibliographies. (AJ)
