About the book

Developing People and Organisations introduces and explores concepts relevant to the learning outcomes for the optional units in CIPD's Level 5 Intermediate qualifications in human resource development (HRD) and organisational design and development. It provides a practical and accessible exposition of key theories informing the professional practice of HRD so students can explain and analyse the organisational context of HRD practice and describe, compare and critically evaluate a range of theories and approaches.

Written and edited by CIPD-accredited experts in the field and mapped to CIPD's HR Profession Map, Developing People and Organisations covers key topics such as organisation design and development, developing coaching and mentoring in organisations, meeting OD needs and developments in HRD. It includes reflective activities, annotated further reading, a glossary and case studies to encourage the application of theory to a practical working environment. Online supporting resources include an instructor's manual, additional case studies, multiple-choice questions and annotated web links.
