Smart Investments in Talent

Boudreau, John Creelman, David

Instead of developing your talent equally across the board, you must recognize that certain jobs and tasks are pivotal.

This topic goes beyond your organization’s HR strategy. It’s about how well your entire organization connects decisions about talent to its strategic interests. Talent decisions lie not so much with HR as with executives, managers, and supervisors. They make decisions about who to hire, what skills to develop, what results to reward, and generally where to invest time and money in improving talent.

This topic provides you with opportunities to  determine unique ways to nurture talentship within your organization and not just mimic what has worked for others.

Today’s topic will provide you with an opportunity to:

  • Appreciate that the best place to invest in talent is sometimes non-intuitive.
  • Learn methods for determining where an investment in talent will yield the highest return.

Here's How it Works


This is a new approach to developing management and leadership skills. Using one of our topic discussion guides, you gather with a small group of peers or direct reports to spend 90 minutes working through the topic one page at a time. Each page has the content and questions to drive your thinking forward and improve your management and leadership skills.

World renowned thinkers such as Mintzberg, Schein, Adler, Ulrich, and over 30 more have captured their ideas and pedagogy on a broad range of topics in our 75 themed discussion guides. These guide your management learning sessions, beginning with reflective discussions on personal experiences and ending with new insights and learnings.  Individual managers use these during 90 minute self-guided sessions. Organizations use these as the foundation for innovative leadership training and change management programs.
