Unified Talent Management: What is it and how do I get some?
Talent Management solutions started as point processes designed to address a single talent issue (e.g., reviews to manage or compare employee performance). Currently, we are in the early adoption stage of combining these point processes into a unified or whole system view. In this session we will quickly review the history of these point solutions to gain an understanding of why we are at the chasm of talent management unification. A definition of unification will be proposed, the benefits of unified TM will be presented, and a model for implementing these enterprise solutions will be discussed. Challenges to realizing unified talent management will also be presented.
1. Identify the basic elements of Unified Talent Management.
2. List the opportunities and challenges of implementing Unified Talent Management.
3. Contrast benefits and limitations of point solutions and a unified solution.
