Data from seven surveys were analyzed to identify characteristics that have an impact on the effectiveness of HRD programs. Results indicate, that setting specific HRD objectives promotes HRD effectiveness more than the setting of general objectives, HRD people are more positive about HRD effectiveness than managers and personnel officers, in-company programs are less effective than individual ones, and that programs in the field of languages are perceived as more effective that programs in the field of management, communication, and commerce.
