Evolving a career development program requires a direct linkage or flow-down from corporate strategic plans to the development program and processes. This can be accomplished with a review and translation of long-term business objectives into goals to be achieved by the career development and mobility program.
Reviewing the company’s strategic plan for changes yields insights into key drivers and capabilities needed to meet the sought-after future state (e.g., a move into increased robotics in a warehousing unit, a plan to expand sales into another country or geographic region, or a plan to offer new services on a subscription basis). Each of these would require either new, modified, or updated skills and capabilities from the leaders and employees who will perform the work under those new circumstances or environments.
