Build your Development Plan and Formative Strategies

Skill building and career management is a collaborative effort between the employee, supervisor, and Purdue University. Employees and their supervisors must enter new goals and/or track existing goal progress within SuccessFactors by March 31 of each year. Purdue's three-step process will help employees and supervisors brainstorm and document professional development goals in SuccessFactors. If you have existing development goals and/or would like to skip the brainstorming process, advance to Step 3 and enter development goals into SuccessFactors.

Step 1: Use this Job Family Career Stream Level Description Tool for a quick side by side comparison of your current and aspirational career stream level descriptions. Why is this step important? There may be subtle or extreme differences in overall expectations/accountability between your current and aspirational career stream and/or levels. This exercise will help you gauge potential differences. (Click the image below to get started)
