T35 - The Professional Career: A Manageable Process

Tuesday, May 1
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Location: WSCC 4C 3-4

Level: Intermediate

As professionals, we are all keenly aware of the importance of viewing business activities from a process-oriented perspective. However, process doesn't end at the factory floor or in the field. The growth of our careers is also a process, and our success and satisfaction is dependent on how we manage that process. This presentation will discuss how the tools of systems thinking, process management, and quality management can be applied effectively to the professional's career life cycle. The session will cover the early stages of career growth through the steps approaching retirement. Change is inevitable. However, the way we transition through change is within our control. And, as professionals, we already have many of the tools at hand to support appropriate planning for those transitions.
