The Seven Summits Model

The career management system emerges as a strategy that aims to balance employees’ goals will the company’s objectives, seeking to enhance the growth of both parts.

A professional development model needs to plan how employees evolve in the medium and long term, being as critical as career development. It’s from this model that employees have a broader look into their future, on what their professional path will be in the company, making it more practical to align the expectations of both the company in relation to the employees and the employees in relation to the company.

At Latitudde, we created a professional development model based on a story that is always very funny and different for those who listen to it.

🏔️ Using the 7Summits model, we made an analogy to the seven highest mountains in the world: Everest, Aconcagua, Kilimanjaro, Vinson, Cartensz, Elbrus and Denali.

The idea is that each of the Latitudde collaborators is a Climber and, to succeed, must climb their mountain.

Each of these mountains corresponds to a different technical and functional area. For example, Everest mountain corresponds to Fullstack.

Curious how do people progress within their mountain? Easy!

Every mountain is divided into checkpoints – also known as safety zones. Here you can rest, drink some water (for a few months), and prepare for the next level of the climb.

Checkpoint 1 corresponds to Junior Consultant and Checkpoint 5 to SME (Subject Matter Expert). How far and how quickly each person progresses is up to their focus and ambition.

The 7Summits model is based on the main pillars of Latitudde: excellence, commitment, accountability, and respect. 

It is a model based on the merit and effort of our people that allows them to evolve and grow within the company. So that the employee can set their own goals together with the company, relying precisely on the company’s support to provide the necessary tools for the employee to achieve their professional goals.
