Career Development in the Work Place: A Guide for Program Developers. Information Series No. 247.
Imel, Susan; And Others
This guide presents nine tasks to be performed in planning organizational career development programs. Following an introduction that briefly discusses the guidebook's purposes, the state of career development programs in the work place, and uses of the guide, the nine tasks are discussed in two main sections. Part 1, Leadership Tasks, covers three initial objectives: determining organizational readiness and commitment and presenting a program proposal effectively; building a team to assist in planning and work once organizational approval has been granted; and staffing the program with qualified personnel in carefully defined positions. Part 2 focuses on six program development tasks: assessing internal and external resources; assessing the career development needs of both the organization and the employees; defining program goals based on the needs assessment; designing the program from successful models and derived strategies; implementing the program by way of listing resources, personnel, and deadlines for each program goal; and evaluating the program and using the assessment data. Each task section includes a brief list of suggested readings and, where appropriate, example worksheets helpful for completing the task. The guide concludes with a list of general resources (monographs, periodicals, and organizations) on career development and references used in this publication's development. (DTT)
