    ATD Las Vegas, VP of Finance Steve Hodgson explores the new ATD Talent Development Capability Model.


    The Talent Development Capability Model defines the capabilities (knowledge, skills, abilities, and behaviors) for the talent development field. It answers the question, “What do talent development professionals need to know and do to be successful?” It is the foundation for the Certified Professional in Talent Development (CPTD) certification – previously known as the Certified Professional in Learning & Performance (CPLP) certification. It replaces the ATD Competency Model which included Areas of Expertise and Foundational Competencies. For more detailed information about this model, go to www.td.org/capability-model.

    This future-oriented model can be personalized. It sets a new standard for the field, responding to those trends affecting talent development, such as digital transformation, data analytics, information availability, and partnerships between talent development and business.

    Who Is This Model For?

    • current talent development professionals
    • those seeking entry into the field
    • managers of the talent development function
    • organizational leaders seeking to leverage talent development for organizational effectiveness.

    How the Model Can Be Used?

    The Talent Development Capability Model can be applied in a variety of ways by a diverse set of stakeholders.

    • Individuals can use it to explore job or career expansion, identify knowledge or skill gaps, or to prepare for certification.
    • Academic institutions, professional groups, and others involved in education can benchmark and align their curricula.
    • TD managers and leaders can use it to establish what roles to fill and which sets of skills are required of their staff.

    See details and explore the new capabilities in the attached full article.
