									Professional Development Plan
Purpose

This template has been designed to assist you with gathering measurable feedback
regarding an employee’s past performance, attitude, and ability to do their job.


Developing Professional Development Plans is essential for maintaining motivation,
assessing department capabilities, and managing your staff effectively. Managers who do
not deal with performance issues reduce employee morale, decrease credibility of
management, diminish organizational effectiveness, and contribute to increased costs for
resources.


Scope of Review

Use a standardized planning form with which both you and your employees can become
familiar. When filling the performance dimensions to be assessed, include responsibilities
from the job description, any assigned goals from the strategic plan, as well as needed
skills and behaviors for the defined job/role.


Following are the major sections that comprise a Professional Development Plan.


      Section 1 – Overview of Previous Quarter


      Section 2 – Accomplishments and Obstacles


      Section 3 – Strengths and Opportunities

      Section 4 – Goals, Targets and Action Items
