Synopsis: Organisations, of all kinds, are facing the challenge of rapidly advancing technologies, and ever-increasing levels of competition, both nationally and globally. They are also seeking to operate in an environment where the traditional relationships between employer and employee are rapidly changing.
Learning to harness the talents of everyone comprising an organisation is critical to sustainable organisational effectiveness. Successfully developing the talents of all members of an organization is, arguably, the only lasting source of competitive advantage.
This handbook provides a unique and authoritative review of relevant research, theoretical developments, and current best practice in the management of individual development.
Drawing on the expertise of both renowned academic specialists and leading practitioners, the book is designed to be a practical resource for the guidance and support of those whose role is to bring about the development of people at work.
* Authoritative reviews of relevant evaluation research, and best-practice descriptions of key assessment and development tools
* Editor with excellent psychological and consultancy knowledge, experience and contacts
* Written by International contributors within a strong conceptual structure
* Part of a new series - Wiley Handbooks in the Psychology of Management in Organizations
From the Back Cover: How can we maintain competitive advantage in a rapidly changing environment and at the same time create and sustain organisations in which people thrive both materially and psychologically?
While organisations are facing the twin challenges of advancing technologies and increasing levels of competition, successfully developing and retaining the talents of all its members is key to organisational effectiveness.
INDIVIDUAL DIFFERENCES AND DEVELOPMENT IN ORGANISATIONS is a wide-ranging review of research, theoretical developments and current best practice for HR consultants, managers, academics and advanced students in psychology.
Michael Pearn has assembled a comprehensive collection of renowned academic specialists and leading practitioners to provide academic research findings and practice-relevant information on a variety of subjects. These include: whether competencies exist; the meaning of Emotional Intelligence; whether personality influences performance; what turns an assessment centre into a development centre; whether development resources should be concentrated on the most gifted; methods of developing diversity; and using networks to enhance learning.
This authoritative handbook will prove an invaluable tool for those charged with the development of people in organizations in today?s climate of constant change.
