What is talent management


By John Ha


The term “talent management” is still somewhat of a mystery to most, but it is becoming more widely used to describe the overall HR strategy around people in the workplace. And just like reliability is becoming a more recognized and appreciated component to gaining a competitive advantage in manufacturing, best-practice organizations have identified talent management as the key component of their business strategy to differentiate themselves from the competition and achieve desired goals.

 

Some of you have already jumped on board with this concept. Thanks to Jim Collins (“Good to Great”), you’re used to phrases like “get the right people on the bus” and “get the wrong people off the bus.” These have become commonly used statements in all sorts of meetings. My favorite quote is from Tom Peters in his book, “Re-imagine!” It says, “My point is not that ‘people are cool,’ ‘people are important.’ It is that … ‘people’ (their talent, creativity, intellectual capital, entrepreneurial drive) is … all the hell there is.”

 

I love that quote because when it comes to people vs. systems/processes, it’s always been a “chicken and egg” type of argument. Some argue that you need the best systems and processes that are simple, efficient and easily executable. Others argue that even the worst systems and processes can be executed efficiently and productively with the right talent. Consider me in the latter camp. I believe the right talent eventually creates the best systems and processes. Given the choice, I’ll take the right talent over systems and processes any day.

 

 

 

Now, let’s return to the original question. What’s talent management? It’s simple, really. Talent management is the strategy that drives the specific events that people experience in the workplace. It encompasses seven things:

 

1) Corporate identity: Who are you as an organization? Do you have the desired culture? Do all of your employees understand your vision, mission and core values or beliefs? What keeps your employees coming to work each day? What drives their behavior in the workplace with your customers and with one another?

2) Recruitment and selection: How do you identify and select the “right” people for your organization? Is it based on gut feel? Is it based on their education and skill level?

 

3) Performance management and coaching:Are you properly managing performance and providing the kind of coaching employees need to improve?

 

4) Employee development and training: Areyou developing your employees? Are you helping them identify a plan to improve their skill set and maximize their potential?

 

5) Compensation, rewards and benefits: Are you properly rewarding your employees? Do you have the proper structures in place to ensure your employees meet their financial needs?

 

6) Success planning and leadership development: Do you have a plan in the event that “Joe gets hit by a bus”? How are you creating tomorrow’s leaders?

 

7) Compliance, policy and procedures: Do you have your ducks in a row? Are you meeting your legal obligations? How are you handling employee relations?

 

If you’re lucky enough to be part of an organization that has their act together in talent management, I’m willing to bet you’re a pretty happy, motivated employee. But, I suspect most of you can go through this list and identify significant opportunities for improvement in more than one category.

 

Think of talent management as links in a chain supporting your organization. If any of these links fail, the whole chain fails, causing your organization to fail in meeting its goals. Success begins with leadership. If leadership doesn’t drive this down, middle management is doomed to fail. They end up making promises they can’t keep, and they end up worse off than before.

 

If you’re on the “egg” side of the debate of people vs. systems/processes, that’s OK. After all, talent management is a system and process. In short, there’s no way around talent management if you’re going to be competitive.

萬里赴戎機,關山度若飛

「唧唧復唧唧,木蘭當戶織」。我記憶中的木蘭辭雖然是個女中豪傑的故事,但惦念著的卻來來去去都是描寫花木蘭女兒態的句子。

今午走過中環舊天星碼頭隧道,側牆好大的一幅poster,是香港舞蹈團的季度作品[花木蘭]。海報挑了「萬里赴戎機,關山度若飛」兩句作點題。

我看見了竟呆了一呆,發現自己幾乎沒有嘗試過從「女人真我本色」的角度去了解花木蘭,而是盲目地服從了花木蘭只是迫不得以才「代父從軍」的,角度。

「代父從軍」是消極被動的,而「女人真我本色」欲是打蛇隨棍上的主動和衝勁。「萬里赴戎機,關山度若飛」好一對氣宇軒昂的句子。


《木蘭辭》

唧唧復唧唧,木蘭當戶織。不聞機杼聲,惟聞女歎息。問女何所思,問女何所憶。「女亦無所思,女亦無所憶。昨夜見軍帖,可汗大點兵。軍書十二卷,卷卷有爺名。阿爺無大兒,木蘭無長兄。願為市鞍馬,從此替爺征。」

東市買駿馬,西市買鞍韉,南市買轡頭,北市買長鞭。旦辭爺孃去,暮宿黃河邊;不聞爺孃喚女聲,但聞黃河流水聲濺濺。旦辭黃河去,暮宿黑山頭;不聞爺孃喚女聲,但聞燕山胡騎聲啾啾。

萬里赴戎機,關山度若飛。朔氣傳金柝,寒光照鐵衣。將軍百戰死,壯士十年歸。

歸來見天子,天子坐明堂。策勳十二轉,賞賜百千彊。可汗問所欲,「木蘭不用尚書郎;願借明駝千里足,送兒還故鄉。」

爺孃聞女來,出郭相扶將。阿姊聞妹來,當戶理紅妝。小弟聞姊來,磨刀霍霍向豬羊。開我東閣門,坐我西閣;脫我戰時袍,我舊時裳;當窗理雲鬢,對鏡帖花黃。出門看火伴,火伴皆驚惶:「同行十二年,不知木蘭是女郎!」

雄兔腳撲朔,雌兔眼迷離;兩兔傍地走,安能辨我是雄雌?

How to make a domestic egg bomb blast:

How to make a domestic egg bomb blast:
1. Put three eggs into a container on the fire
2. Add in water and turn on the fire 
3. Forget about the fact that you are boiling three eggs 
4. 30 min slipped away and there is a strange smell filling all around your apartment
5. You suddenly recall the things about the boiling eggs
6. You rush into the kitchen and throw away the cover of the pot
7. The pressure inside the eggs is high so the eggs they blast bomb when the container is given extra air upon the moment that the cover was opened

P.S. it will turn into a pot bomb blast if amnesia goes on another 30 min.
