NER Strategic Individual Development Plans


Individual Development Plans (IDPs) are strategic plans for employee growth. They answer SMART objectives that describe the learning outcomes as Specific, Measurable, Actionable, Realistic, and Time based. Workforce Development is a key focus of the Northeast Region and the National Park Service strategy and it is up to you as a leader to align your resources with it in a meaningful way.
