Academy of Human Resources Development - PhD
Strategic decisions in learning organizations can no longer be based on hunches or gut feel-ings, but should rely on scientific analysis of data, that the organizations generate. Data related to core competencies, past organizational performance, employee skills and competen-cies could be crucial in formulating effective strategies for corporate plans, including diversification and expansion. If organizational experiences are systematically researched and analyzed, this can aid in facilitating organizational change processes viz. restructuring, right-sizing, process improvement, etc. Internal research, process analysis, and audit by the HRD Department are essential for validating and evaluating the effectiveness of HRD policies, systems and interventions.
With organizations applying various methods and policies it is important to identify key research needs of the organizations for strategic planning and decision making. It is also for the organization to evaluate HRD & OD interventions for effective change management processes. Human resource has changed the way they work and to initiate should provide guidance to research—and related activities in organization. Therefore a program is needed to guide and implement the activities into a research based document. AHRD’s fellow program’s objective is not only to provide guidance in the research areas but also to offer internal as well as external consulting and counseling for initiating and managing change process.
In response to this need of Indian organizations, the Academy of Human Resources Development has designed the Fellow and Associate Programs in Human Resources, Organizational Development & Management, for preparing practicing managers and academicians to not on-ly undertake the role of researcher-analysts and facilitators of change management processes in organizations, but also to enable them to take up research and use it as a tool for better performance.
