Full Text Reviews
Appeared in Choice on 1994-02:
Gutteridge is a well-known and well-respected researcher on the topic of careers and career development. His coauthors are also active writers and consultants in this field. The book is based on a survey sponsored by the American Society for Training and Development of career development practices in more than 1,000 large companies in the US and other developed countries. Case studies that profile career development systems at 12 exemplary companies are highlighted. Specific best practices are discussed in some detail including job information systems, leadership education, and succession planning. The book concludes with practical tips, systems approach to change, and future challenges. The major contributions of the book are an updating of the state-of-the-art and an international perspective on career development. It is destined to be a classic in the field and should be of great interest for graduate and undergraduate collections in business, education, and psychology as well as for libraries serving business executives, human resource managers, and consultants.
