The development of human resource management in the public sector is an important part of government administration which needs to be adjusted for constant change. The existing models of human resource development (HRD) that might have been thought as an effective tool need to be resynthesized. Specifically, determining the factors that affect the synthesis of the historical data and information from the current situation to predict the trends could be added in the models. The Thai government sector has still commonly used the training methods to develop the human resource management despite there are various methods which emphasize the organizational development method for HRD. Due to the technology advancement together with the epidemic crisis, the public sector needs to adjust itself to the virtual human resource development (VHRD), which is currently the most popular method and is also probably popular in the future. The factors that greatly influence the development of human resource in the Thai government are leader and budget. Applied to the futures wheel, the two factors create the four scenarios of HRD: 1) Prosperity HRD Model, 2) Non-Direction HRD Model 3) Priority HRD Model, and 4) Dysfunction HRD Model. The four scenarios may be useful for the organizations that are likely to face these situations. Such organizations can apply them to solve problems and to redesign their policies with the aim in preventing the problems that might happen in the future.
