Individual Development Plan
An employee uses IDP to prioritize and develop a plan of action to reach his or her short- and long-term career goals. An individual development plan also identifies the training and other developmental experiences needed to achieve those goals, for the benefit of the individual and organization, within a specified time frame. It is definitely to your advantage to position yourself for long-term employability in the rapidly changing world of work. Begin preparing now for the future. Additionally, the company benefits from having a competent and motivated workforce, capable of “re-tooling” itself to meet the demands placed on it by constant organizational and technological changes.

Your Individual Development Plan (IDP)
To the extent that any of your career goals involve acquiring some new skills or expertise, especially in bearing manufacturing, an individual development plan is very helpful. Follow the IDP process to begin drafting your IDP by incorporating your current or future goals. To assist you in formulating your goals, you can incorporate the goals you will formulate on the relevant developmental activities. In selecting developmental activities, try to achieve a balance between formal training activities (e.g., courses, seminars) and other kinds of learning experiences (e.g., work assignments, reading books). Also, include realistic time frames for completing your actions.
