Hey everyone, I want to share with you this short video about how I have created the career path for my team. 


What have you done as a leader to create a clear career path for your team?

Thanks for breaking this down @Michel Hauzeur ! Our company is working on a career path plan but great to see how others are doing it. What would you say was your biggest challenge in differentiating the skill and knowledge for each role level?

Hi @Parveen Downer, thanks for your comment!

I think the most challenging part is to identify what additional responsabilities you can adopt when you are growing from senority to senority. As an example: When I talked about product orientation, I imagine that you as a Jr PM you will start working in a single feature, but when you are getting more experience, you will start leading an end to end user experience, then a product, and then you will be leading a team and doing some mentorships programs.

Thanks for the video @Michel Hauzeur 

I am thinking about the structure I need for my team as we scale from a team of 3.

Currently my team consists of 2 Business Analysts and 1 PM.

There seem to be so much variation on the role and responsibilities of a PM when you review job adverts - I wondered what the difference in a PM Junior is compared to a PM Semi Senior within your organisation ?

Also, are you able to share the templates ?

Hi @JeannetteC,

Thanks for your comment.

First, the link to the Miroboard is: https://miro.com/miroverse/career-path-template-for-leaders/?social=copy-link

Second, the answer to your question is, depends on you. As an example I have defined the difference in management as: junior PM is able to talk with stakeholders with the Coach, Leader of a more senior PM as a support rather than a PM Semi Senior, who can directly talk without any support.
