Be clear about the means by which achievement of learning objectives will be

validated. Will a knowledgeable expert, such as a key position incumbent, review

the results? Will the learner be asked to complete an oral interview to

demonstrate results? Will learners’ performance on developmental projects be

reviewed by those with whom they work? These questions must be answered

separately for each learning objective and for each learning project or assignment

on which the learners are to work to qualify for advancement.

Step 8: Review the Contract with Consultants

Before the individual development plan is approved, it should be reviewed by

knowledgeable experts. In this context, experts and consultants are meant to

have broad meanings. For instance, experts and consultants might include

any—or all—of the following:

Members of SP&M Committees

Friends

Spouses

Immediate Organizational Superiors

The Learners’ Peers

The Learners’ Subordinates

Academic Experts

Recognized Authorities in Other Organizations

Depending on the organization, the individual, and the key position for which

the individual is being prepared, other experts or consultants might prove

Exhibit 10-6. A Worksheet for Identifying the Resources Necessary to

Support Developmental Experiences

Directions: Use this worksheet to help you identify the resources necessary to support

planned learning/developmental experiences.

In the left column below, indicate learning objectives and the planned learning/

developmental experiences that will be used in helping an individual qualify for

promotion. Then, in the right column below, indicate specifically what resources—

such as information, money, trainers, equipment, time, and so forth—will be needed

to allow the individual to meet each learning objective and participate in each

planned learning/developmental experience.

useful. For instance, individuals may wish to identify their own mentors and

ask for their advice while negotiating an IDP. In unionized settings, union

members may also wish to include union representatives.

Ask the experts to provide information on which they are qualified to

comment. For instance, from their perspective, does an IDP appear to have

identified the right learning needs, established the right learning objectives,

identified the most appropriate learning strategies and resources, and established

the best means by which to evaluate results? Is it practical and capable

of being completed in the time allowed? What suggested changes, if any, do

the ‘‘experts’’ recommend—and why?
