Talent management is ‘the hot topic’ for HR managers and chief executives in organizations today. Since McKinsey announced ‘The War on Talent’, organizations have been struggling with the issues of defining talent, developing talent, and providing structures and systems to retain talent within their employment. This book offers new insights into these key areas by drawing on a range of in-depth case studies which are presented in full. Commentary is provided to help the reader draw the most relevant examples for them, and a guide to developing a talent management system is presented through the identification of a number of strategic perspectives, and operational dimensions that put this into practice. This book is ‘a must’ for anyone responsible for managing talented individuals in their organization.
