ASTD today announced a breakthrough new book on one of the hottest subjects in the human capital industry, featuring the insights of some of the most prominent and forward thinking experts. Titled The Executive Guide to Integrated Talent Management, the book was an immediate sell-out at ASTD’s International Conference & Exposition in its preliminary debut.
The Executive Guide to Integrated Talent Management shows how to build a comprehensive talent management strategy through a combination of research, case studies and expert observations. The guide features the collective experience and insight of 19 thought leaders ̶ including David Ulrich, Marshall Goldsmith, Peter Cappelli, Noel Tichy, and Edward E. Lawler, among others – and provides practical advice about how to adopt effective, state-of-the-art methods that can transform organizations. The book features cutting-edge research on the talent management practices of high performing organizations. It spotlights the best and next practices of leading corporations such as 3M, Agilent, GE, Hertz, and Cisco that have pioneered efforts to make their organizations perform better through their people..
“People are the most important asset in any organization, yet managing talent as a cohesive strategy is surprisingly rare,” said Pat Galagan, co-editor of the book. “Far too many organizations are stuck in the tradition of letting human resource “silos” separate the components of talent management, rather than encouraging communication, cooperation, and effective integration. This first-of-its-kind book takes the mystery out of talent management, and allows the reader to access some of the top minds in the business in order to implement proven comprehensive and integrated talent practices.”
The Executive Guide to Integrated Talent Management is available now on the ASTD Store.
