As the company I'm currently with has grown they have brought in Personal Development Record folders for everyone. These serve several functions (generally useful). Basic contents are:

1 Business plan

2 Current corporate goals - basically 1 and 2 give people a bit of company background and details about where the company is headed so everyone knows (at a high level) what's going on.

3 Current Departmental goals - distillation of 2, highlighting targets etc for individual departments.

4 Appraisal agreement form/job description/goal progression chart. Indicates individual goals and provides a way for you to track your own progress. These are updated regularly (appraisals twice a year) and things likes tools/training required etc are highlighted

5 Personal Development Record - list areas of learning: mentoring, meetings, formal/informal training, product familiarisation etc. Record sheet provided to allow to record these - what it was, when and outcome; was it beneficial? would others find it useful etc

6 Training Record and Costs. A breakdown training received - what it was, what it cost etc.

Sections 4 and 5 are linked and may be what you're after. Together they determine what you need to do your job well in terms of training etc. 5 should also include non directly-work related stuff (at least at that time). For example, it should include conferences etc where there may be no immediately obvious benefit
