PDP: The end of the development plan?


Would you like to participate in a future Virtual Roundtable?

In this discussion we debated the role of plans and planning in professional development.

Most organisations ask people to write down their personal and professional development plans at least once per year. Yet most also acknowledge this doesn’t result in planned development.

At this roundtable, Jonathan Winter (founder of Ci) argued that spontaneous and social learning could, and should, spell the end of traditional development plans. So what can be done to encourage real development? Chris Macrae (Global Head of Talent Management at GlaxoSmithKline) outlined one approach; a two-step practical process to bring plans to life and help managers focus the PDP process in a way that really works.
