Why is talent management such a global corporate phenomenon? Why do organisations need talent management solutions? The answer is that without a talent management training infrastructure there is no way to identifying, recruiting talent and defining the really talented employees who deliver corporate success.
Yet, how many organisations have truly defined what they mean by developing talents or indeed have talent management strategies? In most cases, these terms are broad and lack consistency of meaning across organisations resulting in poor focus and outcomes. Without such talent definitions, it’s impossible to build a talent map setting out the direction for talent strategies and activities. From this, organisations can develop fit for purpose talent frameworks and evaluative systems.
The Secrets of Superior Talent Management by Professor Adrian Furnham and Dr Paul Turner brings together the thoughts of two leading authorities in the area of talent and people management. Their views may challenge your current talent management perspectives or reassure you that you are on the right track. By nature of their different perspectives, there is both disagreement and agreement in their insights, much like the talent management industry.
The 18 Chapters will provide you with ideas and insights by which to evaluate your own views as well as setting out ways to implement and evaluate talent management frameworks.
Read on and allow yourself some time to discover new standpoints and consider approaches on how to make talent management a success in your workplace.
