Call for Chapters

This new projected volume, Behavioral Strategy for Human Resource Development [BSHRD], will bring together some of the latest thinking in the field of research on the nature and role of behavioral strategy in the development of human resources in organizations, both in private and public sectors. In general, all aspects of behavioral strategy for HRD are welcome as research topics, with both theoretical and empirical treatments of the topics. By selecting a number of cutting-edge research perspectives, frameworks, models, theories, and empirical findings that inform the subject, the chapters in this book will serve as a compendium of promising ideas to provide some rigorous impetus for a critical area of research in behavioral strategy.

We invite you (and your associates) to contribute a chapter to this projected volume [BSHRD].
