Well, unless you create and implement a targeted, robust, realistic, and measurable development plan, all that work will have been for nothing. The most common way to create development plans to address those gaps is to identify 1-3 key skills, or competencies, that the candidate is lacking that need to get better at. For each skill, you’d have a set of development actions to address the skill. New experiences will always develop many new skills, not just one.
