For most CEOs, talent is at or near the top of their priority list, and yet lack of talent remains a major obstacle in achieving organisational goals. This significant CRF research project, sponsored by DDI, will examine how to better align talent management with the needs of the organisation, and how practice can be improved.

Overview
For most CEOs, talent is at or near the top of their priority list, and yet lack of talent remains a major obstacle in achieving organisational goals. The talent needs of organisations are changing rapidly, but many are failing to respond at pace and are finding themselves behind the curve in attracting and developing the people they need to deliver sustainable performance. The expectations and aspirations of key talent are also in flux and many organisations are not managing to optimise and deploy effectively the talent they have. This significant CRF research project, sponsored by DDI, will examine how to better align talent management with the needs of the organisation, and how practice can be improved.

Content
This wide-ranging review of current practice and future direction in talent management will consider a number of issues.

• How can talent management be more explicitly linked to organisation strategy and purpose?
• How can current approaches to talent management be improved?
• What are the key future challenges for talent management, and what steps can organisations take to prepare?
• How should talent strategies take account of the needs of global organisations, emerging markets and demographic and social trends?
• How should organisations make sure their talent is effectively deployed?
• How can the use of data and technology enable talent management processes?

This event builds on a talent management roundtable in April 2015, where we gathered the views of senior practitioners on the current state of talent management and established the priority areas of focus for this research.
