Career Management and Development within an Academic Environment
This paper focuses on one of the ardent themes of the society - the investigation of both causes and effects of prejudicing the work motivation in a limited context, generated by the academic institutional space with special reference to the Petroleum-Gas University of Ploiesti (PGUP), Romania. The main investigation instrument used has been the quantitative method based on a questionnaire, applied to a representative number of academics staff, and structured following edifying target-zones. Multiple choice closed questions alternate with interrogations characterized by scaled answers.
The paper promotes a coherent process of incremental innovation and change as a permanent basis of the academic educational environment, instead of sporadic response and adaptation reactions to the contextual dynamic. Some strategic and knowledge management directions are thus outlined and intended for improving the negative perception of the teaching staff from PGUP regarding the vision of the management staff of the institution or the reform of the Romanian education system.
