Featured Review: The Executive Guide to High-Impact Talent Management: Powerful Tools for Leveraging a Changing Workforce by David DeLong and Steve Trautman
Winning Workplaces review:
The expertise on display for readers of The Executive Guide to High-Impact Talent Management is substantial: David DeLong consults with businesses to maximize their workforce potential and is an adjunct professor at a school with serious entrepreneurial cred, Babson College. Steve Trautman's groundbreaking work on knowledge transfer has been used to great effect by companies such as Boeing and Nike.
That's a good thing, as their mission with this book is also substantial – namely, to equip leaders outside of HR and IT with a framework and tools to be able to say unequivocally, when asked if their talent management practices are generating the best ROI possible, "Yes."
The authors devote lengthy, meaty chapters to such pertinent issues as ensuring a clear alignment between investments in talent and the business strategy and acknowledging the helpful role of risks (and more importantly, when and how to take them). Also, given Winning Workplaces' mission and work, we appreciate their in-depth look into how culture shapes talent management initiatives, as well as their endorsement that results from these initiatives can be profoundly affected by the extent to which leaders personally sponsor and create a sense of urgency behind them.
