March Career Development SIG: NOISE Analysis for Talent Development

  • Online

ATD Dallas March Career Development SIG

Hosted by Laurie Barnett


March 27, 2023 / 6:30 – 8:00 pm

Facilitator: Mike Cardus



Many in the talent development world are familiar with SWOT – strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. SWOT has a long-standing approach to personal and talent development. SWOT has many benefits. A concern of SWOT is the problem-focused nature that leaves people with a greater focus on weaknesses and threats.

For a more solution-focused lens on talent development, the NOISE analysis shares a way for you to:

1.       Identify Strengths

2.       Recognize Needs

3.       Seek and discuss Opportunities

4.       Plan Improvements

5.       And recognize Exceptions (what is already working well to amplify and what is not working well to dampen)

Through NOISE, teams and individuals can frame what is working well, how they see the needs and opportunities, and identify areas that they are already doing that need a greater or lesser focus.


Working with you in this interactive discussion, we will:

  1. Identify how to set conditions of psychological safety when having talent development discussions with employees, teams, or large departments
  2. Using the NOISE analysis template, collect and gather your areas of strengths and needs
  3. Discuss applications for use and application within organizations
