Human Resource Development

Do you wish to train your executive managers and employees? Are you in the process of introducing new human resource development tools to your organisation? Do you need help with planning and implementing professional development measures? Would you like to make sure that your current system meets the challenges of your business environment? I can provide you with across-the-board advising on all aspects of human resource development.

Human resource development focuses on individual learning. But learning is not a linear, input-output process. Whether people actually apply what they learn in their daily routine depends on a variety of factors. The individual must come to a deep understanding and acceptance of the new material, yet also be able to unlearn previous patterns of thought. A successful program requires backing from executive managers and employees, and a commitment to the revision of existing processes, tasks, roles and structures. Sometimes resources have to be reallocated. When human resource development is done right, it “stirs up” things. I am happy to assist you in organising the process productively and efficiently.

From isolated measures to a comprehensive plan

Experience has shown time and again that single off-the-job workshops or seminars are limited in effectiveness. But people are slow to change their ways and demand for these measures is still high – usually motivated by the belief that they can supplement skills and knowledge that are lacking.

I show my clients how to integrate individual measures into a long-term, comprehensive human resource development system. I evaluate their accomplishments so far while identifying hidden strengths and chances for future advancement.

It is important to assess how the components of human resource development within an organisation match up and lead to the desired goal. Trainings and professional development courses for example often can be practically combined with on the job measures such as supervision, coaching and mentoring. Or with self-directed learning, job rotation, learning and quality circles. Interfaces with personnel recruitment or agreements on objectives, feedback or appraisal interviews as well as employee surveys need to be considered, too.
