The turbulent changes in corporate culture mean that upwardly mobile managers need more than ever to carve out their own career paths. They must take charge of their personal developement and training needs, because they are unlikely to spend more than a few years in any one company. They have to create, their own continuity of career progression, rather than relying on corporate HR Departments to chart the course for them. This book sets out many developments adversely impacting on career progression - including corporate structural change, cultural change, outsourcing, use of management consultants etc- and then deals with the practical steps that companies and career minded managers are taking to counteract them.
