The critical development experiences (CDE) is based on career paths. CDE is an organizational approach which differs from worker approach of competency. This study assumed that CDE has more predicting effect on transitions of middle career stage than competency. Because the experience accumulated by individuals in different job positions within an organization has an effect on them when changing a job, CDE can describe the root of competence but not be constrained. This study also adopted the concept of organizational capability integrated with the concept of organizational structure, organizational life cycle, and globalization to develop CDE contents.
Participants in this study were employees who had been on the job for ten years and had an experience of changing a job .The result indicated that CDE has an effect on job switch time, employment results, and employment satisfaction and this effect is greater than that of competency.
