We can think of HRD in many ways – as an academic subject, a discipline or field of practice – but, to avoid a lengthy debate, I shall refer to it here as a concept, as a way of thinking about activities and articulations associated with developing people in organizations. Similarly, we can think of the word critical in many ways, and in this chapter I seek to explore some of these and consider their relevance to and relationship with HRD, offering some contrasting definitions of ‘critical’. Again, the notion of ‘time’ is woven into the discussions of both.
This provides a conventional examination of the chronology (time map) of HRD and compares this with other related academic subjects, particularly management and organization studies. Although it has existed in the American vocabulary for more than 30 years, HRD is still an emerging concept with a history of around only 10 to 15 years in the UK. However, despite its more mature existence in the US, the concept has only recently been considered from a critical stance (see, for example, Elliott and Turnbull, 2002).
We might also challenge traditional HRD practices, such as the training cycle or the ‘sheep dip’ (everyone gets trained whether they need to or not) approach, which are based more on ritual than evidence. We might consider the use and abuse of power and authority when designing learning interventions, identifying training needs and ‘sending’ people on courses. Finally, we might consider how we know and understand HRD through our approaches to research and whether this should be more democratic, involving our partners in co-constructing new knowledge.
