We would like to acknowledge the contribution of a number of individuals and organisations. First, the ESRC for its financial support for the original seminar, ‘HRD in Small Organisations’. Second, Professors Jean Woodall and Monica Lee, the joint holders with Jim Stewart of the ESRC award, for their encouragement to produce this book. Third, the staff of Routledge, especially Joe Whiting and Annabel Watson, for their patience and understanding. Our contributors deserve our acknowledgement and thanks for offering their work to the project. Debbie Wojtulewicz provided much needed and appreciated secretarial and technological expertise. Finally, thanks to our partners and families for their continuing patience and support.
