Talent Development Capability Model


ATD’s Talent Development Capability Model is a career blueprint for talent development professionals. These are the 23 capabilities that a learning and development professional should have to be successful. The capabilities are organized in three domains: Building Personal Capability, Developing Professional Capability, and Impacting Organizational Capability.


ATD’s research shows that successful talent development professionals need knowledge and skills from all three of these areas to be most effective. Across the next 5 pages, we have defined each of these capabilities. Use this guide to learn where you are in your career growth and prioritize your individual and team development opportunities.
