The TDBoK is a comprehensive collection of concepts, definitions, methodologies, and examples covering the 23 Capability Areas in the Talent Development Capability Model.
Accessible anytime, anywhere, on any device, the TDBoK offers a deep dive of the concepts within the Talent Development Capability Model, the framework that tells talent development practitioners what they need to know and do to develop themselves, others, and their organizations. This first-of-its-kind resource for information on the field was developed with more than 60 subject matter expert contributors and incorporates curated perspectives from thousands of publications. The TDBoK gives you the means to define the personal, professional, and organizational impact capabilities required for success—today and in the future.
The TDBoK can be an important resource for exam preparation for both the APTD and CPTD exams, but should not be viewed as the only resource needed to study for the exam.
Chapters hosting an ATD certification study group are eligible to receive a free, annual subscription to the new Talent Development Body of Knowledge (TDBoK) for facilitation purposes. Review these FAQs for more information on how to use the TDBoK and request one for your chapter.
