* Strategic Talent Management: Preparing Organizations for the Future(Frédéric Godart(HEC Paris, Professor)): When probed about their most pressing strategic concern, top managers almost invariably mention “talent.” The fabled “War for Talent” seems to have been on every leader’s radar for the last 20 years (even during the Great Recession). However, the thinking about the strategic challenges of talent often seem to be stuck between disparaged “human resources” techniques and broad statements about the necessity to attract, develop, and retain “the best.” I suggest an alternative take on talent: the assemblages of competencies that set organizations aside, and allow them to survive and thrive, do not only emerge from individual skills, but also (and perhaps mostly) from culture, design, and routines. These factors link employees and allow them to be creative and innovative, a crucial feature when facing the formidable challenges of the future, from demographic and environmental shifts, to game-changing new technologies such as AI or robotics. ★ Youtube → https://www.youtube.com/wkforum/ ★ Facebook → https://www.facebook.com/WorldKnowledgeForum/ ★ instagram → https://www.instagram.com/worldknowledgeforum/
