Measuring your progress through the programme is vital to ensure success. This is done via a series of checkpoints and assessments that take place during the programme.
Your performance is assessed against development milestones or specific job-related skills that you should be able to demonstrate. These milestones are aligned to the training and development activities you undertake during that period.
Personal Development Plans
Identifying your individual development needs and creating opportunities for you to address these and review your progress are key elements of the Talent Development Programme.
So you will have a Personal Development Plan (PDP) focusing on the development areas that have the biggest impact on your development. The PDP identifies specific actions you can take to improve your performance over a specified period of time, usually 3, 6 or 12 months.
It is completed by your Business Mentor, or an appropriately qualified member of your Dealership's Management Team, with input from you and your Field Mentor. The PDP invites you, your Mentors and Dealership staff closely involved with supervising your work, to review your progress against specific targets and identify further ways for you to improve your performance.
