Bill Conaty, a veteran HR leader at GE, and Ram Charan, a prolific business author, explain how to turn your company into a “talent master” and what you will gain if you do. They detail how five superb talent master firms – GE, P&G, Novartis, Agilent Technologies and Hindustan Unilever – organize their employee development, and how their initiatives fuel success. Charan and Conaty also provide an in-depth report on Crotonville, GE’s world-class training facility. And, they include a re-examination of the way Jack Welch, GE’s CEO from 1981 to 2001, famously transformed his corporation. getAbstract recommends this overview, a solid reflection of the authors’ extensive experience.
