Overview

People—and the value they create—are the lifeblood of your organization.

Imagine having at your command a powerful new model for managing talent, one that creates measurable value, keeps people focused on agreed-upon goals, pinpoints capability needs, and enables you to manage talent so that everyone in your organization has the ability to continually contribute to your competitive success. At a time when the pressure to perform has never been greater, Reinventing Talent Management puts that model in your hands, discusses its use and impact on the key areas of talent management, and brings the discussion to life with an array of real-world examples. Anyone charged with driving performance up will profit from this book.

Today, a host of economic, cultural, technological, generational, and political forces are converging to change the way people and their organizations relate. It's time to pose tough questions and provide fresh solutions:

  • What talent management factors influence one-third of your financial performance?
  • Why are businesses losing an average of 20 percent of their customers to controllable talent factors?
  • Why do some organizations have highly engaged employees in down economies, while some have employees who are disengaged even in good times?

The traditional methods of talent management are more likely to lead your organization to mediocrity than success. The healthiest businesses are those that have adopted new ways to manage talent and in the process build corporate cultures that unite people behind the singular goal of value creation.

Reinventing Talent Management presents a fresh and modern approach to talent management. By connecting value, strategy, and people, William Schiemann identifies three make-or-break factors that contribute to both organizational and individual success. These three factors—Alignment, Capabilities, and Engagement (ACE)—are keys to maximizing the value contribution of your people to your most critical organizational goals.

With Schiemann's breakthrough talent framework, you'll learn to identify, develop, and retain top talent, as well as create a workforce that is aligned with your organizational strategy, delivers superior products and services to customers, and is fully engaged in meeting your goals. With real-world examples, in-depth research, and powerful diagnostic tools, Reinventing Talent Management gives you resources to grow individual and organizational value in an increasingly competitive marketplace.
