An important factor that can make or break talent management systems is the motivation and capability of leaders outside of HR to understand and implement the systems. We know that the greater the motivation, the greater the understanding and ownership. Yet, many talent management systems are presented in a language that leaders neither own nor understand. HR concepts like competencies, succession levels, potential, fit and engagement are all valid, but they are not the typical concepts that leaders use to make business decisions. In this webinar, John Boudreau will show how proven business frameworks such as portfolio theory, customer analysis, inventory optimization and supply-chain management offer untapped ways to reveal the value in talent management to non-HR leaders, and to gain leader support for talent management initiatives."
