Talent & Organization Strategy

Build a talent engine that accelerates leadership readiness at the pace of strategic change.

A talent engine built for your strategy

As the speed of business strategies increases, the rate at which companies can ready top talent to deliver against strategic challenges is a key competitive differentiator. 

We believe a talent strategy is not a document or project; it is an engine that propels our clients to achieve their current and future strategic aspirations. Like all engines, it needs continual tuning and periodic change to run at full power.

How we partner with you

By analyzing your top talent landscape and conducting efficient talent reviews, we help clients build a “talent nerve center” — a more systematic and iterative engine for identifying, matching and monitoring: 

  •   Future capabilities required to deliver on strategic aspirations  
  •   Critical roles that deliver disproportionate economic value, and the bench strength for those roles  
  •   Catapult roles within the organization that accelerate development of talent in relation to future capabilities
  • High potential leaders who will add inordinate value if developed with the right opportunities, exposure and guidance

What you can expect

We can build a tailored talent engine to include: 

  •   A dashboard of key metrics to monitor the strength of the talent portfolio today against the needs of tomorrow and actively manage talent risk. 
  •   A dynamic talent matching process that provides access to leaders who are best suited for critical and catapult roles (i.e., succession plans that are current, relevant, and usable with a short shelf life). 
  •   Increased visibility to talented individuals that may not be well known and increased validity of talent decisions across the enterprise (i.e., minimize affinity bias and improve management calibration). 
  •   Clear and cascaded communications on what it takes to succeed as a leader today and in the future, in the context of your company’s culture. 

We are the right partner to help you quickly build and fine-tune a talent engine that will drive peak performance in alignment with your evolving strategy.
