ATD Talent Development Capability Model

Learn more about the Model at

The national ATD organization has created models of the talent development profession as it evolved for more than 40 years. Based on studies of the forces that influence the field and research about the knowledge, skills, abilities, and behaviors required of its professionals, the successive models have defined and advanced the profession. As the industry evolves, so must we as professionals. The Talent Development Capability Model, released in 2019, is the next step in this industrial and professional development modeling. It replaces the present-focused ATD Competency Model to provide a future-facing approach to your improvement within our field.
