A word cloud can quickly convey relative importance of words by displaying relatively important words larger than relatively unimportant words. Examples of the disclosure are directed to methods of generating a word cloud inside a predetermined polygon of arbitrary shape and size. For example, a word cloud may be generated with words to describe a particular company, and the word cloud may be generated inside the predefined shape of that companys logo, creating a single visualization that both describes and identifies the company. Further, whereas a traditional word cloud may illustrate relative word importance through relative word size, based on relative frequency of each word in a description or corpus, examples of the disclosure are directed to word clouds that can represent multiple dimensions of information for each word using size and color, for example.

Career development processes face three major challenges (1) simplifying steps that require input from multiple users, (2) promoting follow-through with career development plans, and (3) adapting to individual corporate business processes. These issues can be addressed by disabling access to a step if required previous steps have not yet been completed. Additionally, the user can receive a notification over a network when the required previous steps have been completed by a remote user. Follow-through with a career development plan can be promoted by dynamically altering a career development workflow to incorporate the steps of the development plan as they are created. That is, the development plan drives the definition of the career development workflow in which the user is already engaged, helping to monitor and enforce milestones of the development plan.
