Overview

Bill Gates of Microsoft once said, "Take away our twenty most important people, and I tell you we would become an unimportant company."

In most businesses, there are a few key people who are responsible for generating the most revenue, driving quality, developing great customer relations, creating the new products and services, and increasing the reputation and value of the business. These exceptionally talented people are the Corporate MVPs.

While senior executives and managers recognize that one of their most important jobs is to recruit, develop, and retain talented employees, it is critical to know their MVPs and actively manage their development and retention. But how do you identify and manage your MVPs differently from the rest of your high-talent pool?

Corporate MVPs is for senior executives, human resources professionals, and anyone in an organization who must manage this talent. It explains how to:

  • recognize and develop MVPs
  • protect your critical MVP assets
  • increase your MVP pool through recruitment
  • identify, sign, and integrate MVPs from outside the company
  • create an attractive environment that MVPs will thrive in
  • recover a difficult MVP, and what to do when enough is enough

Corporate MVPs features practical tools, questionnaires, and checklists, as well as interviews and examples from senior executives at a wide range of organizations in a variety of industries, including: Continental Airlines, A.T. Kearney Executive Search, Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Company, MIT Sloan School of Management, Honeywell International, Royal Bank of Canada, Limited Brands, State Street Corporation, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Spencer Stuart, and many others.
