An Individual Development Plan (IDP) identifies an employee’s development goals in the context of NPS’ Strategic Plan. The plan contains training, education, and development activities to acquire or enhance the knowledge, skills and abilities needed to maximize job performance. This will help to ensure that staff is prepared to carry out their responsibilities and contribute to the NPS mission by helping them learn new skills, refresh old skills, and make use of emerging technologies. The Individual Development Plan Guide is an NPS-wide resource to help employees to create their plan.
