Description of Career Management. Explanation.




Definition Career Management. Description.

Career Management can be described as the active and repetitive process of:

  • Career Assessment of the aspirations and competences of employees,

  • Career Planning of their career,

  • Career Guidance of their personal development,

in line with the opportunities in and needs of the organization. Career Management is also possible beyond the boundaries of the current organization and at a personal level (See: Employability). Some form of it is important to avoid that existing skills and competences become obsolete and to ensure that new skills and competences will be available in a world of changing circumstances, technologies, mergers, acquisitions, reorganizations.

Amongst the spectrum of activities, methods and techniques that are often used are: training, Coaching, Mentoring, Performance Appraisals, Self-Appraisals, Peer-Appraisals, Behavioral Observation Scales, Competency Assessments, and 360-Degree Feedback.

Career management allows the organization to identify talented employees and to place them in jobs where their skills can be used or further developed effectively. It can be a foundation for Management Succession Planning.
