ABSTRACT
The Just Born People Development System (PDS) is designed to ensure that learning and development not only align with corporate strategy but actually drive business results, while equipping associates with the skills to excel in their current and future roles. It is based on corporate strategy as well as the mission of the organization. It is the vehicle through which Just Born ensures that employees, or "associates" as Just Born calls them, understand performance requirements, are clear about expected results, have opportunities to learn skills necessary to achieve their performance objectives, and are able to identify and prepare for future opportunities. Businesses often lose their highest performers because they don't provide growth opportunities. Just Born's career development program is the vehicle through which high-performing associates are given the opportunity to map their career at the company and position themselves for their next job. With the career development plan, associates identify their short-term career goals as well as long-term goals. In addition to these specific learning opportunities, Just Born offers a comprehensive, foundational leadership program called the High Performance Leadership Development Program. In this program, all members of management learn fundamental leadership skills, including communication skills, coaching, and situational leadership. Alignment is the key to having a learning system that drives business results and contributes to corporate strategy. It is only possible when you start with strategy, build systems to align all activities around the strategy, and empower the people to support it. When you have the right structure, the right processes, and the right tools, alignment can be achieved.
