What is Capability Development?

Overview of the CDEM capability development strategy

Capability Development encompasses the traditional scope of professional development (skills-based training, knowledge-based education, and experience), but also incorporates other aspects including relationships, mandate and direction, tools and work environment, time, motivation and the previously acquired knowledge and skills the person brings to their role. In essence, capability development is a broad and comprehensive approach to growing and developing people to ensure they are effective in their roles.
