In this paper I will focus on the talent management issues in my own department rather than the ones in the larger organization. Specifically, I used the framework proposed in Beyond HR to help my department:

  1. Identify our strategic pivot points
  2. Identify the organization and talent pivot points that matter most
  3. Develop the program policies and investments that will make those pivot points happen.

As I have the authority to do so within my own department my role has accordingly changed from Influencer of Action to Change Agent. I have used a combination of library research and action research for this project.


Paper includes comments from supervising instructor Dr. Stuart Smith.
