Comparing Different Management Styles
4.2. Reviewing career and personal development needs, current performance and future needs to produce development plan
The person reviewed is a male, (age 27) working as programmer for separate clients from home. He did not graduate Riga Technical university and left studies at the last year, since he saw no real need for the diploma. Before working form home, he did work as a programmer in an office for 3 years and took on other jobs related to programming. The main job offered a low wage, since the owner of the company had a function of a mediator. It was a dissatisfying factor since it meant that he took part of the earnings just for finding clients. He takes participates in international programming events and is a member of Latvian Game Developers Association. It is hard for him to work from home since it is distracting. He has no plans to go back to school and wants to sell a major project to earn a house for his family.
It is obvious that IT programmers in Latvia are very requested. There is a wide market that would pay more money and offer better working conditions and socialization opportunities, which are important for a developing programmer.
