In 1999, Professor Aghazadeh of SUNY College, New York, observed that the
key issues and challenges for human resource managers in the new millennium
would centre around globalisation, personnel, and technology. All three factors
are addressed in this contribution which focuses on the culture and heritage
sector and considers the impact of the global marketplace on the status of specific skills in the culture and heritage sector. The data are drawn from the findings of a survey undertaken in 1999 by the Moffat Centre on behalf of the Cultural Heritage National Training Organisation (CHNTO), and their analysis
explores training opportunities by evaluating both the status of training and any
perceived skills shortage in the Scottish culture and heritage sectors. The results
provide a labour market analysis and prognosis of skills within this particular
field of enquiry. In 1998 CHNTO was founded to: enable organisations to achieve their objectives by developing the full potential of their staff (Museums Association, 1999), and it has replaced the former Museums Training Institute, thereby recognising the much wider role culture and heritage plays in the development of societies.
