Creation of Human Resource Development Plan

Bardwell and Holden argue that there are no set procedures to producing a HRD plan.
However, they present eight basic pointes to be used as guidance in developing such plans:

1. Discern the requirements: discern the training and development requirements from the organizational strategy and business objectives.

2. Analyze the training requirements: Analyze the training requirements for effective work performance in organizational functions and jobs.

3. Analyze the existing qualities: Analyze the existing qualities and training needs of current employees.

4. Devise a plan: Devise a HRD plan that fills the gap between organizational requirement and the present skills and knowledge of employees.

5. Decide on the training methods: Decide on the appropriate training and development methods to be used for individuals and groups.

6. Decide responsibility: Decide who is to have responsibility for the plan and its various parts.

7. Implement the plan: Implement the plan and monitor and evaluate its progress.

8. Amend the HRD plan: Amend the HRD plan in the light of monitoring/evaluation and changes in business strategy.
