The field of Human Resource Development has emerged as one of the most dynamic and multifaceted areas of business and management in recent years. Yet despite the mosaic of topics, debates and approaches, existing textbooks often overlook important emerging topics within the field, and do little justice to the variety of strands involved in the study of HRD.
Human Resource Development: Theory and Practice encourages students and academics out of their comfort zones by offering the first comprehensive overview that encompasses all the constituent components of HRD, allowing the reader to clearly separate concepts within the field and provide a meaningful basis for detailed discussion and debate.

This book serves as a comprehensive introductory text to the field of HRD, as well as an ideal platform for a more in-depth advanced study of the field. It is an invaluable resource for students of HRD, or any reader interested in how HRD can play a major role in oiling the gears of innovation within an organization.
