Final Words: Sustaining Talent Management
a. Need the support of CEO and key executives. Any sustained, important initiative needs leadership support from the top. This can be done by asking them all to stay personally invested in the process, to encourage their subordinate leaders—even if competitively.
b. Avoid Complexity Creep: the longer a system is in place, the more complex it becomes until it gets back to the very situation you departed from originally to make things better.
c. Have the Right Talent for Talent Management: The folks who should drive this process should know and love the business, have a production mindset, and possess courage because things get tough when you evaluate anything, especially people.
d. Finally, study, embrace and enjoy the process.
