Human resource development system in the context of public management reform

Jurgita Šiugždinienė

Abstract

The fundamental changes associated with public management reforms calls for a significant
transformation of the human resource function in general and human resource development
responsibility in particular. Therefore, the article seeks to develop and substantiate the theoretical
model of the human resource development system in the context of public management reform
and to verify it by examining congruence of enabling characteristics of the strategic HRD system
with those in Lithuanian central and local government institutions. The results of the empirical
research have revealed that there is limited congruence between the theoretical model of strategic
HRD system in the context of public management reform and the current HRD system in the
central and local government institutions of Lithuania. The Lithuanian HRD system is not strategically
mature in HRD terms and the majority of enabling characteristics are not in place yet.
