Handbook of International Human Resource Development

Context, Processes and People

Edited by Thomas Garavan, Alma McCarthy and Ronan Carbery

This Handbook draws on a global team of distinguished Human Resource Development and IHRD scholars to provide research and practice insights on a range of contemporary IHRD issues and challenges. The Handbook reviews a number of critical contextual dimensions that: shape the IHRD goals that organisations pursue; impact the IHRD systems, policies and practices that are implemented; and influence the types of IHRD research questions that are investigated. The Handbook examines the processes or actions taken by organisations to globalise IHRD practices and discusses important people development practices that come within the scope of IHRD.

Chapter 9: IHRD and managing knowledge

Alexandre Ardichvili

Abstract

In today’s global business environment, cross-border and cross-cultural knowledge management is one of the key drivers of organizational competitiveness. This chapter explores different roles IHRD plays in cross-border and cross-cultural knowledge management processes. The chapter starts with a discussion of how organizations develop and transfer their knowledge assets, and how knowledge shared is organized and facilitated. Next, the chapter explores how organizational knowledge is created, transferred, and shared in international and cross-cultural contexts. Finally, the challenges and opportunities for IHRD presented by the complex task of managing knowledge in global and international settings are set out.
