Human Resource Development as We Know It: Speeches that Have Shaped the Field
By Monica Lee
Twenty-two speeches seminal to the field of HRD are included in this volume. These memorable speeches by key figures in the field were chosen by HRD academics and practitioners, who linked the event to changes in their research, practice, career path and even life view. These speeches are milestones along the path of the development of the field, and, as well as reconstructing their speech, the contributors have also located it within the time it was given and commented on how the field has developed since then.
This book is a resource, not only as an an archive and for those who wish to relive their pivotal moments, but also for anyone interested in the development of HRD as a discipline. The conversational style adopted ensures that the contributions are accessible to a wide audience of academics, students and scholar-practitioners. This unique approach provides an exciting and engaging way to reflect on cutting edge issues in the academic and practitioner world of HRD!
