Talent Development Capability Model™

About the Model
ATD's new Talent Development Capability Model is a framework to guide the TD profession in what practitioners need to know and do to develop themselves, others, and their organizations. It is a blueprint for impact.
Introduction to the 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.
