No doubt, it’s difficult to change. The war for talent will involve far more than novel recruiting tactics. It will take wholesale HR
adaptation. To some enterprises, this might be quite disruptive. However, the need for organizations to morph how they manage
and grow talent is about as fundamental as Darwin’s principles for evolutionary theory itself. Conditions have changed remarkably.
The demographic shifts, revamped business models, digitization of products, rise in big data analytics and new forms of competition require organizations to fuel perpetual skill upgrades. HR must evolve to apply new paradigms toward talent attraction, mine for unrealized capability, build rapid development tactics, implement highly effective engagement strategies and unveil succession.

By improving the performance of these Executive Directors, we improve strategic execution and the likelihood of strategic success.
