    Welcome to the Pennsylvania Executive Education Series sponsored by your ATD chapter.  Every 2nd Wednesday of the month we'll be presenting a thought leader in executive education coming from our most prestigious academic institutions and organizations across the state. 

    Aligning Your Talent Development Function with Dynamic Business Needs

    As a leader in the world of talent development, you can only be successful when you are able to build a strategy that aligns with the strategic business needs of your organization.

    This task involves building a shared language of success, as well as alignment between your strategy and that of your organization’s leadership team. In this session, we will share a free, highly effective tool kit that will enable your accomplishment of these two important goals. One key ingredient of this session is using ATD’s Talent Development Puzzle tool (https://puzzle.td.org/).

    This online tool allows users to discuss, prioritize, and personalize the primary and secondary talent functions needed within any organization. It can be used as a discussion foundation between you and your leadership team as you decide what to focus on and what to leave for another day (as we are all being asked to do “less with less”), or by you and your direct reports to build understanding, alignment, and synchronicity showing how their everyday work aligns with the larger organization’s business objectives and strategies.

    • Attendees will learn to use ATD’s Talent Development Puzzle, allowing them to prioritize 39 different talent development functions,
    • Build a talent strategy that aligns with their organization’s business objectives, and
    • Leave with an action plan to engage their organization’s leadership team in the process.
