Researcher Dr. Ronan Carbery from Department of Management and Marketing, co-edited a new book published by Edward Elgar.
The book, titled Handbook of International Human Resource Development - Context, Processes and People draws on a global team of distinguished Human Resource Development and IHRD scholars to provide research and practice insights on a range of contemporary IHRD issues and challenges.
Fellow researcher, Prof. Anthony McDonnell also contributed a chapter to the book "Researching IHRD: Context, Processes and People"
The Handbook reviews a number of critical contextual dimensions that: shape the IHRD goals that organisations pursue; impact the IHRD systems, policies and practices that are implemented; and influence the types of IHRD research questions that are investigated. It examines the processes or actions taken by organisations to globalise IHRD practices and discusses important people development practices that come within the scope of IHRD.
