The Talent Development Framework
View the Building a Talent Development Structure Without Borders whitepaper today! Talent development professionals build the knowledge, skills, and abilities of others and help them develop and achieve their potential so the organizations they work for can succeed. In today’s knowledge economy, organizations need talent development functions that support the unique competency needs of their businesses. To better understand how organizations are structuring and aligning their talent development functions, ATD and Rothwell & Associates partnered to identify the areas organizations most often use to build a talent development structure for meeting current and future competency needs in a world in which talent has become the engine of business.
