The bedrock of superior, sustainable, organisational effectiveness is the continuous management and development of an organisation’s Talent. Yet having talented people is not enough, someone has to take responsibility for ensuring that talent is unleashed to apply its capabilities to best effect.
The role of those responsible for Talent Development is to provide a proper assessment of talent and a clear indication of its potential value in hard currency. Demonstrating that value is being added is now a necessary part of the talent manager’s portfolio so the need to apply meaningful measures becomes paramount.

Masterclass format:

A highly participative and interactive workshop in a very supportive environment in which you will be encouraged to voice your views and raise the concerns and questions that are important to you. The theory, tools and techniques taught will be applied immediately to your own, real-life issues and problems using practical exercises.

Masterclass Leader: Paul Kearns, Author of “The Value Motive”, “HR Strategy. Creating Business Strategy with Human Capital” and “Evaluating the ROI from Learning”

Participants will take away answers to their most difficult questions around:
• How can I make sure our talent strategy is innovative, provides a competitive advantage and spurs growth?

• How can I make best use of learning technology and blended learning in talent management?
