Growth plans are a great way to monitor and document your progress while improving on your assigned competencies. Lattice allows you to create areas of focus called growth areas that you can work on for a duration of time to assist in your career development. Collectively your growth areas make up your growth plan. Once you have been added to a track, you will be able to create and view your growth plan.
