Personal development planning is the process of creating an action plan based on awareness, [[values[[, reflection, goal-setting and planning for personal development within the context of a career, education, relationship or for self-improvement.

The PDP (personal development plan), also called an IDP (individual development plan) or PEP (personal enterprise plan), usually includes a statement of one's aspirations, strengths or competencies, education and training, and stages or steps to indicate how the plan is to be realized. Personal development plans may also include a statement of one's career and lifestyle priorities, career positioning, analysis of opportunities and risks, and alternative plans (Plan B),and a curriculum vitae.

In higher education, personal development plans typically include a portfolio containing evidence of the skills gathered over a particular timeframe. It is presumed in education that undertaking PDP will assist in creating self-directed independent learners who are more likely to progress to higher levels of academic attainment. It is also used in Human resource management.

Personal developments plans are often a requirement for employee CVs. Employees who are participating in business training are often asked to complete a personal development plan.
