Human Resource Development Reviews


'This book provides a comprehensive guide to what HRD is, the influences that shape it and the methods for implementation, and it discusses the key issues surrounding the application and design of HRD strategies in a clear and concise manner. A very important core text for those interested in how to consider and to apply learning in the workplace.' - David Banner, Westminster University,UK 'Stephen Gibb has provided a text on Human Resource Development which takes the reader from the macro to the detail, and from classic approaches in learning and development to contemporary issues in HRD. Short and more detailed case studies both help to illustrate theory and approaches, and help transfer learning to real life situations.' - John Neugebauer, University of the West of England, UK 'Gibb's HRD: Foundations, Process and Contexts introduces broad-ranging academic research and practitioner argument in plain and relevant language which provides a step-by-step approach to learning through reference to organisational, government, and societal examples, student-friendly exercises and reflective questions based on topical issues. I highly recommend it as a fresh and interesting approach to understanding the salience of human resource development for individuals, organisations and society.' - Kate Hutchings, Professor of HRM, Griffith University, Australia
