Standards and Certification. Symposium.
This document contains three papers from a symposium on standards and certification in human resource development (HRD). "Implementing Management Standards in the UK" (Jonathan Winterton, Ruth Winterton) reports on a study that explored the implementation of management standards in 16 organizations and identified 36 key themes and strategic issues regarding the following areas: setting objectives in adopting standards; embedding standards; implementing standards; identifying competence needs and assessing competence; delivering management development; using and evaluating standards; determining standards' impacts and benefits; and addressing problems in adopting standards. "The Applicability of AHRD Ethics Standards Internationally" (Lisa A. Garrett, Gary N. McLean) explores the theory-building literature on ethics standards and global application of ethics codes and discusses the problems inherent in attempting to apply ethical standards that are applicable in one culture to other cultures. "Nature and Impact of ISO (International Standards Organization) Certification on Training and Development Activities in Singapore Organizations" (Hesan A. Quazi, Ronald L. Jacobs) identifies and discusses significant changes in HRD activities in organizations in Singapore's manufacturing sector that occurred after adoption of the ISO 9001/9002 standards. All three papers contain substantial bibliographies. (MN)
