Summary of One Page Talent Management
Eliminating Complexity, Adding Value
Copyright 2010 Harvard Business School Publishing Corporation. Summarized by permission of Harvard Business Press
Keep it simple: Improve your talent management and develop better leaders by cutting complexity and adding value.
Business leaders publicly tout their employees as their most important asset because they know that their companies are only as good as the people who work for them. Yet many firms struggle with cultivating and keeping capable workers. Talent-building systems are often unnecessarily complex and inefficient, and they can fail to groom leaders in a timely, professional manner. Instead, human resources experts Marc Effron and Miriam Ort suggest a better way: a simplified approach – based on behavioral science, simplification and transparency – that offers real value in such talent management areas as performance assessment and succession planning. The text seems directed at those with some prior knowledge of HR research and tools, but getAbstract believes anyone in HR or related fields will benefit from this guide’s no-frills approach to talent management.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why “One Page Talent Management” (OPTM) can optimize talent management; and
- How to apply OPTM in five human resources areas.
