Research In Review

Finding the time to read the diverse research in fields of HPT, HRD, HRM, OD, Management, Personnel, and other related disciplines the inform your decisions is a rare luxury. Translating those research findings into practical applications is nevertheless the foundation of successful improvements in human and organizational performance. For this reason I annually surveyed leading researchers and research journals in numerous disciplines to identify the top research articles that can guide your needs assessments and related performance improvement efforts. Summaries of the research studies from 2008 to 2011 are posted here.

Research from 2011


In 2012, I decided to "scale up" this effort since reading 30+ journals every year was a struggle and I still didn't get the broad research perspective that I wanted.  So I started www.WeShareScience.com as a platform for getting others to also summarize research (in videos) along with me.  It is still growing but hopefully in the future this will be a more sustainable approach for making the most relevant research available.  Here you can even start your own "board" to collect research that you find of value.
