Welcome to the website for Talent Development Reporting Principles (TDRp) and its home, the Center for Talent Reporting. TDRp is a groundbreaking, industry-led initiative to bring standard principles and reporting to all human capital processes. The effort was launched in October 2010 by Kent Barnett from Knowledge Advisors and Tamar Elkeles from Qualcomm. They brought together thought leaders and prominent practitioners to oversee the development of guiding principles, standard measures, statements, and reports – much like the Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) provide for accountants. We started with learning and development, and we now have the framework in place including definition of measures and sets of standard statements and reports for all key human capital processes. Learn more about TDRp by reading our Introduction to TDRp paper.
The Center for Talent Reporting (CTR) was formed in October 2012 as a 501c6 not-for-profit organization. Our mission is to develop and promote the adoption of reporting standards for human capital that meet the needs of senior executives, talent management leaders, program managers, and other stakeholders. It is our vision that Talent Development Reporting principles are broadly accepted and widely employed as the world-class reporting standard for all human capital processes. Funding comes from memberships and our founding sponsors. Governance is provided by a nine-member board of directors, including a Standards Committee, and an Advisory Council. Members have access to a measures library (with over 500 measures), more than 60 sample statements and reports in excel, and detailed guidance on implementing TDRp.

We hope you will find TDRp to be invaluable resource in managing your human capital and in demonstrating its value.

While more data and tools are available than ever before, practitioners continue to struggle with the fundamental questions of what data to collect, how to report it, and how best use it. Many talent professionals, in particular, struggle with how to create reports that show alignment and impact for their important work. Historically, the talent development field has had no agreed-upon standards to answer these questions.
Our guest speaker, David Vance, Executive Director for the Center of Talent Reporting, will introduce the TDRp framework and discuss how it can help practitioners plan, measure, and manage to deliver business impact using a standard, yet flexible, approach.

The session will be facilitated by Dave Vance and Peggy Parskey and will feature several CLOs with experience implementing TDRp. The following questions will be addressed:
Limited to 10 CLOs/VPs. Substitutes are not allowed. No fee but registration is required at Events > Workshops.

Registration is available online under Events > Workshops.

Strong Demand for TDRp in South Africa
In response to strong interest in TDRp from South Africa, Learning Resources Management Group (LRMG) has asked Dave Vance to present on TDRp and conduct mini workshops in Johannesburg in November. Last year Dave as asked to present in Singapore, and supporters in Canada recently asked that a two-day workshop be conducted in Toronto in December. So, TDRp has international appeal and the Center currently has members from India, Japan, Argentina, South Africa, and Canada as well as the US.
