So what is Human Resources Development?

Werner & DeSimone 2006

Critical comparison of academic HRD models
HRD Models and cross cultural considerations in contemporary organisations
Evaluate the use of new technologies in HRD interventions

Honey & Mumford
Honey & Mumford (1993)
Kolb (1984)
Kolb's Model

Learning styles are too simplistic
Fails to take into account ways of learning other than experiential
Focus on the learning style of western cultures

Forrest (2004)
All styles, no substance!
- no serious academic validity
A crude tool for evaluating learning styles, but does give learners self awareness
However - trainers rarely adapt to the audiences needs

Clark (2012)

Buckley & Caple (2004)
Winter (1995) HRD Integrating Model
Comparisons between Buckley & Caple and Winter
"Winters' approach differs from Buckley and Caple - with the identification of training needs being replaced by the identification of organisation’s objectives or strategy"
Abdullah (2010)
The common 'Skills Gap Analysis' undertake by organisations closely follows this systematic approach favoured by Winter.

However considering Buckley & Caple's three levels of assessment, Organisation, Occupation and Indiviudal, this may be a more thorough model to use.
Triggers for HRD Interventions
Mandatory Requirements
“Health and safety training is particularly important, eg when people start work, on exposure to new or increased risks and where existing skills may have become rusty or need updating”
HSE (2014)
