ASTD Competency Model—Training and Development Redefined™
July 11, 2013
Hosted by Pamela Robinson
Join the discussion as we examine the American Society for Training & Development’s new Competency Model. The ASTD Competency Model redefines the skills and knowledge required for trainers to be successful now and in the future. It captures changes driven by digital, mobile, and social technology; demographic shifts; globalization; and economic forces. The ASTD Competency Model: • defines the latest competencies needed for success across the entire T&D industry. • provides a professional development roadmap for T&D leaders and practitioners. • identifies T&D skills gaps and ways to close them that align with individual and organizational goals. The Model emphasizes: (1) foundational competencies, or those that are important to everyone in the field, and (2) the specific areas of expertise (AOEs), which are the specialized knowledge and actions required by specific roles. For an interactive experience and to dig into each of the areas of expertise (AOEs) visit www.astd.org/model.
