Preparing
a Professional Development Plan (PDP).
A construction crew does not begin to build a new
house without the architect’s blueprint. Though issues may arise during
construction that requires changes to the blueprint, a blueprint serves as the
necessary foundation for construction and helps the crew to visualize and track
the impact of any changes.
Most business initiatives begin with some sort of
plan, though type and quality vary. As a business professional, you may have
heard of the value of strategic planning, and even been part of the strategic
planning process. Yet, many begin a doctoral program without a clear vision of
their goals or a plan for achieving them.
Articulating your goals, as well as developing a
plan for how you will achieve them, will help ensure your success by keeping
you focused on your goals when distractions arise and allowing you to track
your progress. You will articulate your goals by completing a PDP. The PDP will
serve as a living document, which you will continue to update throughout your
program to reflect changes in your goals and plans. Having a plan in place will
help you to visualize the impact of challenges and opportunities that arise so
that you can make changes to both plans and goals to ensure your personal and
professional satisfaction and success.
