Studies are showing that five out of six adults in North America are considering changing jobs. For individuals, this means poor job satisfaction and limited career growth. For businesses, it means worries about team-member retention and low productivity. Both individuals and companies often simply lack a structured way to think about the complexities involved with career planning. Applying business-model thinking to a career model provides a structured process that can help firms retain team members and give individuals clarity for the future. And, as it turns out, working with such models on an ongoing basis also opens up new opportunities never before imagined within a company.
