In today’s knowledge economy, organizations need to build talent development functions that support the unique competency needs of their businesses. Recognizing the challenge this poses, the Association for Talent Development (ATD) and Rothwell & Associates (R&A) partnered to understand how organizations are structuring and aligning the talent development function. The purpose of this research is to describe the components of talent development that organizations can use to build their own individualized talent development structures.

During this webcast and training overview, participants will learn about the research ATD and R&A gathered, and:

  • central components of talent development
  • global challenges in talent development
  • insights from industry leaders
  • building successful talent development in global organizations

Participants of this webcast and training receive ATD's forthcoming research white paper: Building a Talent Development Structure Without Borders.
