The performance development plan is a formal document that is agreed on between a manager and employee at the beginning of a performance management cycle, and includes two components:

The Performance Plan – a record of the agreed objectives of the individual employee, how these will be achieved (through core capabilities and behaviours) and measured; and

The Development Plan – identifies the training and development needs of the employee in order to support their achievement of the Performance Plan, as well as setting out their overall professional development goals.

This form has been predominantly written addressing the employee directly.  This will help to ensure that the employee is the main focus of the plan and takes accountability for the achievement of their objectives and their development.

The Performance Development Plan should be used as a reference tool throughout the performance management/appraisal cycle and be treated as a dynamic agreement that can be adapted to changing environments and situations.
