I was wondering if anyone put together a "career management calendar". The recomendation is to start preparing for a review 12 weeks out, keep your career management document updated, etc. It would be nice to follow a roadmap/calendar each week to stay on track and keep things updated. Has anyone broken this down into maybe a 30 min to 1 hr per week list?

This is just off the top of my head, but as an example:

Wk 1: Update Job History (Career Mgmt Document)

Wk 2: Update XYZ

...

Wk 4: Complete montly review of accomplishments and lessons learned

...

Wk 13: Complete quarterly Career Management Document review

...

Wk 26: Mid year review

...

Wk 41: Start preparing for annual review. Review Job Description

Wk 42: Review past 1 on 1s

...

Week 52: Annual review

I have a summary MS Word document I can share with you.  PM me your email address.

The document began by summarizing counsel/advice metioned in numerous early podcasts (weekly, monthly, quarterly tasks). I am a long-time listener to the MT/CT podcasts.

I haven't updated the document for a few years. However, it contains a lot of information.

For doing one's own self review, there is M.T. guidance on what to do each week leading up to the review, here: https://www.manager-tools.com/node/97994/view

You can spend an hour a week on it, but what's the point? There are built-in programs like CRM or whatever they are called... There is a summary table and you can collect data from employees - phones, reports, letters, and more. There is a cloud, where the data is stored personal format. But I think for business this is not necessary. It took me a lot of expense to install the applications, since there are a lot of employees. Then the financier counted my costs and made a reassessment, is it even worth it to invest that kind of money in something that may go bankrupt tomorrow. So, think before the calendar runs bugs...

Hi there, may I also get a copy of the MS Word document summary? It would be a great guide for sure. Thank you.
