Are you frustrated by the difficulties of translating personal development plans into action?
3Steps2Action is a methodology specifically designed to help
management development professionals cement the link between development activities and on-the-job implementation.
If you're like most of our clients, you are focused on aligning individual and business performance. You have probably been ensuring, for example, that all your training programmes contain action planning sessions, and that your performance management process involves some kind of Personal Development Plan component. Yet you've probably found that all too often, people don’t even begin to implement an action plan, let alone complete one. This amounts to a huge opportunity cost for business: substantial money, time and energy is invested with little to show for it.
Our own research uncovered a number of reasons why this happens. Here are just three:
The answer lies in using a process which is clear enough to be applied across the organisation, and tailored enough to focus on the challenges each individual faces in making their plans happen.
A new model for development action planning is at the heart of the 3Steps2Action approach. Built around the factors that differentiate effective from ineffective implementation, the model describes a three-step process for creating and executing development plans:
Step 1: Make It RIGHT – focused on identifying development needs that are important and significant for both the individual and their organisation.
Step 2: Make it REAL – focused on creating tangible, workable plans with clear outcomes and actions.
Step 3: Make it ROUTINE – focused on creating energy and urgency around putting plans into day-to-day action; taking the first steps.
