The forthcoming publication of The ASTD Competency Study: Training & Development Redefined™- scheduled to be available for purchase in May-will continue ASTD's more than 30-year history of publishing groundbreaking competency models that have both defined and shaped the training and development profession. This latest contribution to The ASTD Competency Model™ legacy is of particular value to training and development professionals who recognize the need to update their skills, knowledge, abilities, and behaviors to help lead their organizations into the future. The 2013 ASTD Competency Model provides these practitioners with two sets of actionable paths forward. First, it offers a broad inventory of topics that training and development professionals need to know to be successful in today's rapidly changing business environment. Second, The Model provides key, specific actions these professionals must take-what they must do-to succeed. Further, it offers a well-researched benchmarking toolthattraining and development professionals can use to identify their own skills gaps. The Model can serve as a guide to those who wish to enter the field, become certified via the ASTD Certification Institute's Certified Professional in Learning and Performance [CPLP®] credential, or deepen their understanding of the field and align their career development plans with emerging trends.
