Abstract [en]

Background: Traditionally the HR function has had a low level of integration and has had only different internal processes and effective administration systems issues on the agenda. In recent years, new developments have challenged traditional definitions of what HR work should consist of.

Purpose: By looking at management development from a business driven perspective, the purpose of this thesis is to investigate how the HR function endorses management development to suit the needs of the business. Course of action: The dynamic-comparative case study method has been used with both quantitative and qualitative approaches to generate a midrange theory.

Results: The HR function must become a strategic business partner with credibility from the business in its work. Thereafter the HR function should focus to develop the individual manager's behaviors and skills through a semi- in-house approach. Also the HR function can bring added value to the business by assessing management development in accordance to hard measurements to the greatest possible extent.
