What Participants Are Saying
"ATD has a strategic and forward-thinking approach to providing valuable professional development. They are constantly rethinking the value proposition of talent development on a global scale and deliberately positioning the organization in a way that adds value to my membership. I look to the association for industry trends and best practices."
"My favorite takeaway from the program was learning about all the aspects of a learning organization, since most of the work is done by others in my organization. I would recommend this program because it gives you comprehensive knowledge of how to competently develop a learning organization and what to watch out for when developing your learning strategy and business plan."
