    Abstract

    The theoretical framework of HRD’s role, as outlined in the Chapter 2, has very limited empirical validation, since it is based only on a literature study and two small national case study research projects. Moreover, it is unclear whether the framework is valid for the European situation, since much of the literature on which it is based is of American origin, and empirical data were only collected in the Netherlands. Therefore, to clarify the European outlook on HRD in learning-oriented organisations (the main objective of this study), data were collected in seven European countries, using a combination of qualitative and quantitative methods.
    In the first phase of the project, case study research was the main method. The aim was to gain an in-depth understanding of the concepts of the HRD departments, the strategies they adopt to turn these into practice and the facilitative factors as well as the difficulties they encounter during this implementation process. The design of the case study research is described in the section on ‘Case study design and realisation’.
    In the second phase of this study, a survey was conducted with a larger group of organisations, to ascertain to what extent the case study findings are representative of organisations throughout the seven EU countries that participated in the study.
