Each step reveals a new horizon - Inspect and Adapt Your Career

Imagine ... that you had a personal coach who has your best interests in mind, helps you discover your strengths and weaknesses, helps you identify your next steps, celebrates your wins with you along the way, helps you learn from your experiences and is with you every step of the way.

Imagine ... that this is how you manage your career!

We would like to share with you our "Inspect and Adapt" Career Development model and a real-life case study of the model in action.



Outline/Structure of the Case Study

How did it all start?
Priya attends her first Sprint Retrospective
She is going through a rough patch at work
She approaches us coaches for a retrospective on her recent work experience
The first retrospective proves to be of value
Priya likes the results – great insights and focused action items
Can she use this for a longer term career management – an idea takes root
The next retrospective has a long term goal – a vision takes shape
How to make the vision a reality?
The vision makes a great backdrop, but Priya wants to act now
Vision broken down to big rocks
Too many things to do - what to focus on in the short term?
Time-boxes are introduced
Time-boxes encourage us to break out actions down to small, specific actions that are achievable within a month
Action items implemented – what did we learn?
Time-box ends, some action items implemented – time to retrospect
Circumstances keep changing – time to revisit
Projects, People, Personal life changes - Priya feels the need to adjust and adapt both her vision and her short term plans
Our experiments now look like a Model for Career management
We will share the model in its current avatar which now also includes several tools, tips, suggestions etc
Is a personal coach required or is the model alone enough?

    Hi Vinaya/Sutap,

    Inspect and Adapt Career Management Model look interesting. Please help clarify

    • Is this at a concept stage? or
    • Has it been a widespread practice in your organization. If it is then what will be good is data points on how many have used this model and some outcomes that can be qualified by HR for ex.

      Hi Ravi

      Thanks for your interest. The model has been tested and has some promising results but with one test subject:)

      And that is what we would like to share as a case study.

      It has definitely moved beyond the concept stage and we have a fairly well fleshed out model.

      Please let us know if you have any other queries or comments.
