A defined plan

Creating a career plan can help project managers identify the skills they need to obtain so as to realize their professional aspirations. This article discusses how project managers can create a career plan. In doing so, it describes the challenges involved in this task--including the lack of a typical career path for project managers--and the significance of identifying career milestones that can inform daily decisions. It also explains the benefits of completing a SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, threats) analysis as a method for outlining a career path. Accompanying this article are two sidebars: The first lists three elements of well-crafted resumes; the second profiles PMI's recently released career framework for project managers.
