    The work of HRD has become very complex. The fast pace of change makes it more urgent than ever for HRD to add value to organisations. Managers are now the new HRD practitioners. They must rise to meet new challenges and get results...Part 1 looks at the 'big picture' of HRD - the current international change climate with a particular emphasis on the microeconomic context of Australia. It also addresses the links between HRD and its sibling functions of HRM and IR...Part 2 looks at the key HRD role choices - change agent, analysing needs, designing and developing programs, training, assessing, facilitating, coaching, administering and managing human resources...Part 3 examines current and frequently used practice choices available to professionals working in human relations...Key features.. - The first Australian book to address the theoretical and practical issues of HRD.. - Adopts a choice approach which is new to HRD and enables it to be linked to areas not previously connected in the literature eg. IR, Adult Education, and HRM
