TALENT MANAGEMENT Talent happens to be the back bone of all successful organizations. Thus talent needs to be identified and fast tracked at all times.

One of the best methodologies to identify the talent is an assessment centre. Choice of simulations is the defining factor of the success of an Assessment Centre. The assessment should also be based on identified competencies in the desired business domain.

Assessment centres need to be designed and implemented with stringent control.The choice of assessors is important here. It is best to have operations people with a behavioural assessment experience. Once identified as talent in the assessment centre, the selected candidates must be then observed under certain controlled environments. Once satisfied with the performance, the organization must then work out a succession plan. Talent thus identified must be then systematically developed for future opportunities. One of the development initiatives is on job training through job rotations.Strategic projects and opportunities always excite the talent.The factors that retain the talent are challenging opportunities and fast tracking options. A long term succession planning process and mentoring initiatives would surely help in retention of talent. World Class Companies initiate superior talent management process. They also tap into the personal vision of their employees and offer them opportunities in line with their interests.Talent management is thus one of the best processes for creating business managers within the organization. It is best to nurture talent within, than to look for lateral hires. Promote only those who practice and profess the organization culture. It is imperative thus for organizations to look at their talent management process should they choose to evolve as World Class Organizations.
