"This informative and challenging book demonstrates how HRD can become a more potent contributor to business success. . . . 'HRD Survival Skills' details the essential skills for the next generation of developers. The evolution of the role continues - don't become a HRD dinosaur...read it!" Vince Whittle, Head of HRD and Training, VISA International. '...a highly practical and readable guide for anyone in HRD who must position or market themselves, but hates to do it. This book makes the process accessible while helping the reader see the value in marketing. If everyone in HRD followed the three caveats in Chapter 7 of this book, HRD would improve both its image and its capacity.' Karen E.
