MHRE128 Проект: Кариерно развитие


From an organisational perspective, helping to manage the careers of others is a key aspect of personnel and development work. In doing so the personnel and development professional has to consider and balance:

• aspirations and expectations of individual employees, who are increasingly aware both of their marketability and their vulnerability to market forces and therefore conscious of the need to acquire and maintain a portfolio of transferable capabilities

• the organisation’s need to secure its skills base, and develop people’s potential and commitment, in the face of global competition for knowledge workers and scarce managerial talent.

• the way people are increasingly concerned about maintaining a balance between work and ‘quality of life’.

The course provides the opportunity to link the theoretical concepts of career management and development to practice. Students identify specific issues related to personal development. The assignment directs them to exert the appropriate theories and concepts in their own developmental analysis, to perform critical reflection on the theory and practice observed, and to propose appropriate recommendations for improvement.

The course directs students to gain firsthand experience in identifying own needs for learning and development and design a plan of own career management and development prioritizing the needs and corresponding actions for 2 years period.

The objectives of the course are:

• Developing skills for planning and undertaking activities to develop their own managerial and leadership skills.

• Exploring and analyzing tools and practices for managing development and careers in specific organizations.

• Applying self-assessment tools and perform a personal SWOT analysis of the current state.

• Applying a model of skills and personal competences in assessing the individual and making an own development plan.
