It is well-known today that people are at the centre-stage as organisations strive towards being more successful. It is also generally acknowledged that the people employed by organisations have, in general, a tremendous amount of talent and potential. The challenge for organisations is often to unlock and develop this. Through doing so, organisations may be able to not only develop the people, but the organisation as a whole. The underlying philosophy is therefore that through the development of human resources, organisations develop as well and are hence put in a better position to be able to compete and be successful. MGT2004 is an introduction to the areas of learning and development in organisations from a human resource development perspective. This course is designed to equip you with the skills and knowledge to meet strategic organisational human resource development requirements. The course explores learning and development concepts and approaches and the role of learning and development as a strategic partner to management. You will learn how to design, implement and evaluate systems for learning in organisations as part of a strategic approach to human resource development. Students should note that this is a second-level specialist human resources course.
