Human Resource Development

David Mankin

  • Provides a complete introduction to human resource development; unlike other textbooks, assumes no prior knowledge or experience of learning and development
  • Presents the core areas, including the process for formal training interventions, in addition to more contemporary topics such as learning and development in small and medium sized enterprises, and managing knowledge
  • The text uses the UK perspective as a starting point, but also reflects on contemporary debates to offer more global perspectives and international coverage
  • Blends key theories and concepts with a 'how to' approach to enable future HRD practitioners and general line managers to evaluate and implement learning and development initiatives
  • Wide range of features including activities, hints and tips, practitioner perspectives and end of chapter case studies, designed to encourage critical thinking and application.
