Supporting your transition to the new Profession Map

The new Profession Map is both an evolution of and a step-change from the 2013 Map. With the focus shifting from role-specific activities to guidance for values-based decision-making, the new Map prepares teams and organisations for uncharted territory, steering their judgement where no obvious solutions, rules or precedents exist.

In November 2018, the new Profession Map replaced all previous versions as the international benchmark for excellent people practice. However, the 2013 Profession Map still remains a robust, relevant and useful point of reference, which is why it'll continue to play an important role for the next couple of years, remaining the foundation of all current CIPD qualifications, continuing professional development (CPD) tools and membership standards.

The new Map provides a clear framework to guide and drive the agenda for increased professionalism and capability across the function. We appreciate you may already have been using the 2013 Map in this way, but, since the new Map is more of an evolution than a revolution, the transition from the 2013 Map to the new Map is seamless. If you’d like to learn more about the detailed consultancy support we can provide, or how we can define and develop ‘bespoke’ standards for your organisation, get in touch with us on +44 (0)20 8612 6200 or clientdevelopmentenquiry@cipd.co.uk.
