    Abstract

    This chapter describes the results of the case study research in The Netherlands. Four organisations were studied: the chemicals producer Akzo Nobel Chemicals (BU Salt), the telecommunications company Ericsson, the IC-T service organisation BAC (the IT centre of the Dutch Internal Revenue Service) and the construction company KIBC.
    The first four sections contain full case study descriptions (based on data from 1998), including for each case:
    • background information on the organisation, such as core businesses, number of employees, and current (learning-oriented) strategies;
    • vision of the HRD professionals on their (new) roles in the learning (oriented) organisation;
    • strategies they employ to realise these roles.
    The next section describes factors that (negatively or positively) influence the achievement of these envisioned roles. General conclusions and a summary are provided in the final section.
