NEW YORK (October 13, 2014) – The Human Capital Institute (HCI), the global institution for strategic talent management, today announced the launch of a new, in-depth Talent Management course. The University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business, and renowned talent management leader Dave Ulrich, collaborated to create this five-week course to help business leaders achieve and sustain market leadership for their organizations by attracting, developing and retaining the best talent.
As organizations today strive to achieve ambitious objectives, keep up with the pace of innovation and retain the confidence of customers, the ability to get the most from their teams is essential to meeting these goals. Getting to this state, however, requires more effective leaders – leaders who set direction, communicate ideas and invest in practices that shape how people think, act and feel. When leaders make work meaningful, they help create organizations where employees are motivated by a value proposition and not just money. And by developing, coaching and making meaning for employees, leaders can continually boost the performance of their teams and thereby the performance of their companies.
HCI’s Talent Management for Business Leaders course is powered by CorpU, a leading online talent development and education provider, and built by Ross School of Business, University of Michigan, which was ranked #11 in the top business schools in the U.S.
This course is based on the expertise of Dave Ulrich, professor at the Ross School of Business and a recognized global leader in talent management. Participants of the course will learn the valuable skills of how to grow and support their teams for the best possible outcomes as well as how to maintain talent within their corporations. 
The course will address several key objectives, helping participants to:

  • Examine the impact of talent on teams and the organization
  • Discover effective frameworks for setting expectations, managing performance and conducting effective communications
  • Describe opportunities to develop team members through training, work experience and non-work experiences
  • Analyze methods for getting team members to do their best at work
  • Learn strategies and actions to help employees find meaning in their work

“HCI is the leading source of information for human capital professionals looking to improve their talent strategies with the latest actionable insight,” said Carl Rhodes, HCI’s chief executive officer. “Our partnership with CorpU, and the new Talent Management for Business Leaders course offering, further enables us to provide our audience with the most cutting-edge information that can transform their human capital practices and lead to ongoing organizational improvement.”
“CorpU works with some of the top universities and corporations in the world to address complex business issues. By partnering with HCI, we’re able to expand access to high-quality business development for today’s emerging leaders,” said Alan Todd, CEO of CorpU. “HCI provides relevant, targeted courseware for those companies who strive to develop and sustain key talent, and the Talent Management for Business Leaders Course is a great example of that.” 
The Michigan Ross Executive Education Program partners with organizations in many parts of the world on leadership development initiatives. “Our work has become so much more than working with companies to ‘develop capabilities;’ rather it is about the companies solving problems, finding and capitalizing on opportunities, and realizing their strategic aims,”  said Melanie Barnett, chief executive education officer at Ross. “This collaboration with HCI and CorpU provides a unique approach to doing just that, as talent management is the primary driver of organizational success.”
