CTDO (Chief Talent Development Officer) is a quarterly digital magazine (ISSN 2471-5107) for talent development executives developing the next generation of talent. This dynamic content written for C-suite leaders provides a high-level look at the top trends in talent development, and offers practical solutions to burning challenges in the field. CTDO’s mission is to empower talent development executives to create a world that works better. Each issue includes:

  • CTDO spotlight: profile of a talent development executive with a particular focus on how he or she collaborates with the C-suite to achieve business success
  • Hot topic feature: a look at macro-level, global issues that are affecting the world of work
  • Debate: a column contrasting two diverging viewpoints on a popular practice or theory
  • Confessions From the C-Suite: a different perspective from the typical "happily ever after," this case study column focuses on a big problem that a company is facing and lessons learned from implementing a talent development initiative
  • Giving Back: highlight of talent development professionals’ efforts at the individual and organizational level to give back to the community and society at large.
