Talent Strategy is an executive development program designed to provide individuals and organizations with key concepts and practical tools of Talent Management to undertake a Talent Strategy journey.

Talent Strategy isNow Hiring sign at least as critical to success as financial, marketing, and technology strategies.

Participants will prepare to initiate a focused and factual conversation with peers and senior leadership about Talent and its contribution to the organization's success. Select data from nationally recognized research organizations will provide solid argumentation on Return on Investment.

Powerful yet simple assessment exercises will help participants assess where their organizations are on the Talent Management map.  Tools and instruction will enable participants to develop appropriate action plans.

Management practices and processes are challenged by experts and vendors, and internally by employees and management, Talent Strategy will help sort out both sides of the arguments.  We will explore the five forces at play: Employees, Line managers, Senior leadership, HR team members and Systems vendors.
