Executive Development Plan Template
The Executive Development Plan is meant to serve as the "blueprint" for all short-term and long-term developmental activities which
will enhance an executive’s performance. Developmental activities, whether participating in a detail assignment, taking a course, or
reading a book, should develop a broader perspective and deeper knowledge of the agency and Federal government. Plans should
be updated periodically (e.g., at least once every three years).
