Intended Audience

Everyone who is interested in:

  • Understanding emerging and contemporary issues in talent development 

  • Thinking broadly about the intersections of technology, training, HR, project management, and leadership 

  • Discovering new capabilities to develop for broadening personal expertise

Through its competency studies over the last 40 years, ATD has helped define what training, learning, and talent development professionals need to know and do to be successful. Amid a constantly evolving business landscape and a proliferation of new buzz words and trends, success in our field has always been about unleashing workforce potential and harnessing it to generate meaningful business impact.

ATD’s latest research to measure the pulse of the profession culminated with the release of the Talent Development Capability Model. The model underscores how specialized knowledge for creating, delivering, fostering, and measuring learning is essential to TD’s ability to boost the potential of our learners and deliver value to the organizations we serve.
