    Comments from the BVOP™ community on “Personal development management”

    Gabriele Schröder

    Personal development should be the core concern of all human resources departments in modern companies. The strongest motivating power of employees is their personal development.

    It's not the salary or the projects they are currently working on. Modern people think about their future. They are not focused on the present.

    Many human resource professionals ignore this fact. Or they are not even aware of these elemental needs of people.

    Note how many aspects of the organization, teams, and projects can be influenced positively by the personal development of employees if their organization offers it.


    Personal development is crucial for individuals and organizations, leading to increased confidence, motivation, productivity, and communication skills. The Business Value-Oriented People Management (BVOPPM) office creates plans for personal development with clear objectives and instructions, including improving self-awareness, identifying strengths and weaknesses, and achieving work-life balance. BVOPPM also emphasizes the importance of personal development before initiating any activities.

      In job advertisements, businesses regularly highlight good opportunities for personal and professional development. When we start working in the company, we begin to see that there is neither personal nor professional development. The years go by and we are at the same level as we started working in the company. I'm thinking about the topic and for the last 5 years it turns out I have not developed at all. The only party that benefits employer-employee relationships is the employer. Usually, there is no time for training, no time for lectures, no resources for development. There is only a lot of work to do.

      Hello! BVOP is an excellent new teaching that I admire. Can you share a strategy or any specific ideas and details for personal and professional development for employees of a technology software company? Thanks in advance.

    3. BVOP

      BVOP is indeed an innovative approach to project management and team leadership. When it comes to personal and professional development for employees in a technology software company, there are several strategies and ideas that you can consider: Encourage employees to pursue ongoing learning and development: Providing opportunities for employees to attend training sessions, workshops, and conferences can help them stay up-to-date with the latest trends and technologies in their field. Additionally, encouraging employees to pursue certifications can also help them develop their skills and advance their careers. Offer mentoring and coaching programs: Pairing employees with more experienced colleagues who can offer guidance and support can be an effective way to help employees grow and develop their skills. Additionally, offering coaching programs can help employees overcome challenges and achieve their goals. Provide opportunities for job rotation and cross-functional training: Allowing employees to work in different roles and departments can help them gain a broader perspective and develop new skills. Additionally, cross-functional training can help employees understand how different parts of the organization work together and how they can contribute to the overall success of the company. Create a culture of feedback and continuous improvement: Regular feedback and performance evaluations can help employees understand how they are doing and where they can improve. Additionally, encouraging employees to give feedback on company processes and procedures can help identify areas for improvement and foster a culture of continuous improvement. By implementing these strategies and ideas, you can create a culture of learning and development that supports the personal and professional growth of your employees, ultimately benefiting your company as a whole.
