Last year we published Intelligent Mentoring as part of our portfolio in the business strategy portfilio of IBM Press. Many of the book author’s decided to puruse another book and wala – hot off the press is, Agile Career Development: Lessons and Approaches from IBM.
Here’s what an early reviewer had to say:
“This book highlights tried and true best practices developed at a company known the world over for active dedication to their workforce. Mary Ann, Diana, and Sheila have captured the key issues that will enhance and streamline your career development program and, subsequently, increase employee engagement, retention, and productivity. I particularly like their practical, real-life understanding of the barriers to most career development programs and the manageable framework to bring career growth to life. They also teach us how to make a business case for career development–critical in creating the foundation for a sustainable program. This includes a good blend of benefits both for the individual employee and the organization as a whole. I only wish I had this book available to me years ago when I was managing a career development program!”
