Abstract

Discusses dual ladder programs in which professionals may choose either the technical ladder or the managerial ladder, both having comparable prestige in terms of salary, status, and responsibility. It is suggested that the dual ladder concept is a viable one; its principal pitfalls are the result of improper operation, not distorted logic

Keywords: Dual Career Ladder, Career Mobility, Managing Professionals
