|PEOPLE DEVELOPMENT RESOURCES ON THE WWW
They say we are only ever 3 introductions away from anyone else in the world. On the www you should be able to find anything you want in no more than 3 steps. My aim on this page is to provide a selective, rather than a comprehensive listing; an efficient ‘first introduction’ in the chain that leads you to what you are looking for.
If you can’t find something you need, related to Human Resource Development, by following the links on this page or using the listed gateway sites, please let me know and I will develop this page accordingly
