The Link Between Research and Practice: Experiences of HRD and Other Professions ~ My Article

Another of the articles I worked on for some time was also just published in the current issue of the journal Advances in Developing Human Resources — The Link Between Research and Practice: Experiences of HRD and Other Professions.

I will repeat the abstract:

Creating synergy between research and practice is viewed as the basis for creating successful and meaningful HRD outcomes and is fundamental to the maturation of the profession. Given this, there is naturally an interest in the strength of the relationship between research, theory, and practice, and this has been reflected in the journals of the Academy of Human Resource Development from their inception. In this article, the authors summarize some of the key points from the last 10 years of those journals and put them in the context of research-to-practice experiences in other professions. We conclude that HRD practitioners, practice, and professionals are hampered by the lack of connection between practice and research in the field.

I appreciate the work and support of my co-authors, Darren and Sophia!

  1. Your concept of Silence and Voice or Research and Practice is very similar to the first two steps of the ancient Egyptian laws of Virtue.
    1. Control of Thought
    2. Control of Action
    The third is “Steadfast in Purpose”.
    (Stolen Legacy by George G.M.James)
    It appears that all system analysis is derived from this same premise. Their is:
    1. Input
    2. Through put
    3. Out put

    Another way to see it is:
    1. Mind
    2. Body
    3. Spirit
    All can be connected to an esoteric philosophical view of man pathway to understand,control and put into action his process for success and achievement in life.
