Career Paths and Individual Development Plans
Career management is about creating an environment where employees clearly see their future growth in the organisation they are working for. Employees are not only interested in what they earn today, but also about their future growth.
This means that professional progression ladders
or career paths
have to be clearly drawn so that employees can see how they can move upward, downward(?) and horizontally in the organisation (given they have competencies for the job).
This will usher in the need for Individual Development Plans
(IDPs), in which employees develop their own individual vision and discuss with their supervisors what kind of developmental intervention they need in order to achieve their vision.
So career management includes career development plans, drawing career paths and identifying critical success factors etc.
