Hi All,

 

We are going through a reorganization of our IT division and along with that we would like to do a skill evaluation of our technical staff.  We  intend to create a professional development plan for each individual based on the current skill level.

 

Anyone done anything similar,   are you willing to share your approach/methodology/templates/insights with us.

 

Thank you

 

Spalding

Hi Spalding,

 

Before the College of Engineering at the University of Arizona laid me off in 2009, I was trying to reshape the IT staff Performance Appraisals (PAs) after PAs done in a different IT unit across campus (I’ve made the PS docs available at https://www.dropbox.com/sh/19jiwods5tziqn1/RP0Eb1R3Fe).  Each PA has a custom development plan that the supervisor and employee develop.  I believe in holistically staff develop; 360 reviews, professional development, etc.  An insight I can offer is, people only move out of their comfort zone when they are uncomfortable; sometimes supervisors have to make employees uncomfortable so they don’t stagnate.

 

If you, or anyone else, have questions about the PAs, call or drop me an email.

This is a topic of high interest to me as well.  We’re about to undertake a similar process at UAB---would love to see what others have done already!
