In an organization, management and planning are of prime importance in driving growth and success. Both concepts are equally relevant in driving our career growth and advancement.

Career management is the function of planning, organizing, directing and controlling our professional activities and resources in order to achieve our career goals. It starts with reflecting on and understanding one's purpose, personality, values, skills and passion. This is critical in order to ensure that our goals are consistent with who we are, what we believe in, our interest and unique talents.

Integral to career management is career planning. A career plan is a clear roadmap on how we will achieve those goals. It contains specific and time-bound actions to close the gap between our current skills and capabilities, and where they need to be. It also includes the resources needed and the people whose support we need to help us in our journey.
