Full text not available from this repository.


A five-year investigation has found that many talent management programmes are unaffordable and destined to disappoint. Talented people can be costly to recruit and difficult to manage and retain. Fortunes can be spent on expensive people who are not engaged, effectively used or properly supported. Developing cadres of future leaders is problematic when organisations cannot be sure of their future requirements and priorities. The investigation provides evidence of a practical, more affordable and less disruptive route to building high performance organisations and quickly achieving multiple objectives. The approach it recommends can avoid traditional trade-offs and benefits both people and organisations. It has implications for leaders and leadership.
