So here I am, brushing the shavings off my fresh certification. I’ve got four to six years of BC/DR experience under my belt. I have a good job as a planner-analyst that I have been working at for a while. I feel like I’m ready for a new challenge. Now what? Logically, I would start thinking management. Realistically though, this may be more difficult than imagined. So what does this mean for the career path? How does one make the jump from planner to manager in an organization? Now we enter the great swamp of the mid-career. During this phase of the career, I as a mid-level planner, am not sure what I should do with myself. Management beckons, but seems forever out of reach so long as I am a planner. I have the knowledge and experience to get the job done but finding a slot that will actually hire
