Talent Development Capability Model

The model is personalizable, updatable, and future-oriented, reflecting the field of talent development now and also five years in the future. It responds to those trends affecting talent development, such as digital transformation, data analytics, information availability, and partnerships between talent development and business. It also anticipates a future workplace transformed by artificial intelligence and a workforce composed of part-time and contract workers.

Steps to Get the Most Value Out of the Capability Model

1. Explore the Model. Action is easy when you have the right framework. Discover the knowledge and skills that will empower the growth and development of talent development professionals.

2. Take Your Self-Assessment. Take the self-assessment to measure your skills and knowledge in personal, organizational, and professional capabilities. Use this guide to learn more about how to assess yourself.

3. Choose Your Learning Path. Once you finish the self-assessment, you will be asked to choose your learning path.

4. Choose Your Learning Plan Resources. Build a learning plan from ATD resources that will close knowledge and skill gaps to prepare you for the next step in your career: a new role, a certification, or long-term development. You can also add non-ATD resources to your plan.
