Reviews

“True organizational value lies in the expertise that resides in the skills, experience, and behaviors of employees. Yet, not enough has been known about how to identify, develop and measure employee expertise… Until now. This comprehensive review brings together leading researchers and practitioners from around the world, offering new insights, perspectives, and advice on how to make the best of the expertise that resides across a range of organizational settings.”

- Dr. David McGuire, Reader in Human Resource Development, Glasgow Caledonian University, Scotland
