My presentation on Professional Development Plans ended up being ranked 47th out of 190, with an overall score of 4.63. The range is 1-5 with 5 being good, but it’s also a game of inches. If my score had been 4.5 I would have dropped to 90th place. Solidly in the middle of the pack and that’s fine, a good consistent performance. I’ll keep this in my 2012 plan, and do some incremental tweaks (and thinking on a part 2).
