The purpose of this study is to examine literature on the differences between the public and private sector with respect to human resource development (HRD). This study will define HRD in addition to exploring various published theories on sector differences. The study will address the importance of values, in addition to, specific sector differences. This study will specifically explore any theoretical, human resource management (HRM), organizational development (OD), organizational commitment, wage or motivational differences between the public and private sector. This study is valuable because it will reveal and define some of the public and private sector differences with respect to human resources. This study, in part, helps to answer the question about what is HRD and how is it defined.
