Over 50 percent of CEOs say skills shortages and technology disruption will impact profitability over the next decade, and roughly 75 percent of companies are focused on investing in automation, upskilling, and deploying advanced technology, according to PwC. To meet these organizational demands, many talent development leaders are investing, on some level, in a skills-based talent development strategy. Yet many others are left wondering where they stack up and how far along they should be in the development process.

To address this need, ATD's senior leader executive consortium CTDO Next created the Skills-Based Talent Development Maturity Model to provide a structured approach to assessing, planning, and improving an organization’s skills-based TD efforts. Attend this webinar and learn how to align your skills-based initiatives with the business’s strategic goals, foster continuous improvement, enhance accountability, and ultimately drive long-term success. 

Primary Capability Covered: Talent Strategy & Management
