Management CPD – how do you do yours?


Hello all,

As part of your management development programmes, do you encorage (or insist) on your managers keeping track of their continuous professional development?
If so do any of you encourage your managers to use blogs as a tool, and if not what do you use? Would you consider a blog to be a good way of tracking CPD?

Many thanks for your help,

PS - this is to help me out for a degree assignment, so anything is appreciated!

    You could encourage or insist they fill out a diary detailing what they did and what they learnt from it and how they will use it. It depends if completion of the course will lead to increased salary in which case a written record will be evidence of learning and help them to fix in their own mind how they have developed.

  2. CPD?
    Hi Nikki
    This doesn’t help you but I am curious – there is a lot of talk on this site about CPD and a number of websites – is it a UK govt initiative? If so, is there a website that explains it? I am interested to know more. Thanks, Karen (NZ)

  3. Weblog coaching
    I offer weblog coaching. This is a confidential, quick response, on line, executive coaching service for people management and personal development ‘as it happens’. As months go by the blog postings and responses certainly verify an individual’s journey and progress.
    Selectively chosen (respecting confidentiality) the postings would provide an excellent mechanism for tracking and verifying personal development. Find out more:

  4. CPD – How do you do yours?
    Nikki I hadn’t considered the use of ‘blogs’ but it might be a good way of getting some managers to record their development. I personally use, and encourage my students to use a professional development journal (I think someone else has talked about diaries). The journal is used to capture key events or critical incidents and review what went well (or not so well), what was learnt, how this can be used and what happens next. Whatever tool is used, its important that is works for the individual so perhaps a blog might work better for some … but the paper based journal for others.

  5. Training blogs
    Nikki, as part of our online skills assessment and development planning solution we incorporate a blog that enables both managers and their staff to communicate during the development planning process. It is voluntary but gives both parties the ability to record events, issues and changes to ensure both are up to date
