Any organization desires capable employees. Many theories and models have been developed to identify what an organization regards as capable employees. A practice called "talent management" has emerged for this purpose, and what this model is searching for is called "talents". There have been many studies on how to organize a talent management system, but few on what the system actually searches for. What does "talent" actually mean? Using a case study approach, this book studies three multinational organizations? usage of the term. The book discusses how reasonable the usage of this term is; starting from an understanding of how it is used, and ending with a suggestion as to why it is used. What problem does the usage of the term talent solve in a modern management context?
TALENT is a book focusing on the term talent as opposed to talent management as a practice.
The book can help broaden your understanding of talent and talent management, and should be of interest of human resource professionals as well as researchers and students active in this area of study.
