Radical Advice for Reinventing Talent-and HR
Most executives today recognize the competitive advantage of human capital, and yet the talent practices their organizations use are stuck in the twentieth century.
Typical talent-planning and HR processes are designed for predictable environments, traditional ways of getting work done, and organizations where "lines and boxes" still define how people are managed. As work and organizations have become more fluid-and business strategy is no longer about planning years ahead but about sensing and seizing new opportunities and adapting to a constantly changing environment-companies must deploy talent in new ways to remain competitive.
Turning conventional views on their heads, talent and leadership experts Ram Charan, Dominic Barton, and Dennis Carey provide leaders with a new and different playbook for acquiring, managing, and deploying talent-for today's agile, digital, analytical, technologically driven strategic environment-and for creating the HR function that business needs. Filled with examples of forward-thinking companies that have adopted radical new approaches to talent (such as ADP, Amgen, BlackRock, Blackstone, Haier, ING, Marsh, Tata Communications, Telenor, and Volvo), as well as the juggernauts and the startups of Silicon Valley, this book shows leaders how to bring the rigor that they apply to financial capital to their human capital-elevating HR to the same level as finance in their organizations.
Providing deep, expert insight and advice for what needs to change and how to change it, this is the definitive book for reimagining and creating a talent-driven organization that wins
Advance Praise for Talent Wins:

Ed Breen, CEO, DowDuPont; Lead Director, Comcast-
"If you believe you've read all there is about the role of human capital in propelling value creation, think again. Charan, Barton, and Carey have crafted their many experiences into a compelling and concise book that frames a 'people before strategy' argument that is refreshingly new and different."

"Talent is the difference between a good company and great company. And nurturing talent-helping people flourish-requires continuous action, effort, and work. It is critical to the mission and the aspirations of an organization that leaders be inventing, and then reinventing, the talent development playbook. Talent Wins helps you do just that."
Hein Knaapen, Chief HR Officer, ING Bank NV-
"This book gives compelling arguments for treating talent management as a crucial competency for any company that wants to succeed. The authors' proposed approach is a real departure from many accepted practices in talent management. Taking their recommendations to heart will significantly change the role of CEOs as well as the requirements for HR professionals in the future."
