Using Individual Development Plans as Core Component in Manager Development: Richard B. Marcus, Ph.D. www.linkedin.com/in/richardbmarcus and Jason Rappoport, Senior Director, PMO -- Over the past 20 years a variety of best practices have emerged for developing managerial talent in organizations. Central to these is the Individual Development Plan. (IDP). This session will provide an overview of considerations required when executing a personally relevant IDP (for yourself or others). We will begin by reviewing context, components (including assessment tools) process and deliverables commonly used in any effective IDP process. Then we will switch to more “hands on” with participants going through an interactive table exercise that allows them to “take stock” of their personal managerial strengths and weakness, creating a “draft” IDP designed that addresses recognized development gaps.
