This is part 2 of a three-article series. ASTD's competency model was designed to convey what will be required for the next generation of practitioners. The new model includes the following three layers, among others: Foundations) competencies. Divided into three competency clusters - interpersonal, business/management, and personal - each cluster contains its own set of skills required for success. Areas of expertise. AOEs, for example career planning and talent management, are the specific technical and professional skills and knowledge areas required for success and build upon the focused application of the foundational competencies. Roles. Requiring a select group of competencies and AOEs to perform effectively, roles rely upon a vast body of underlying skills and knowledge to support their execution. One could argue that ASTD's new competency model provides a picture of what it takes for workplace learning and performance professionals to excel and make a difference in the field.
