The latest surveys show that over 90% of all organisations use talent measurement processes and that the $4 billion global talent measurement market is growing steadily each year. The records also show, however, that this investment by organizations is having remarkably little impact.  And while plenty has been written about best practice - about which methods are best to use in which situations--there is little if anything on why these methods are having so little real world  impact. This book fills that gap.The authors are part of a small group of people who combine a deep technical knowledge of talent measurement with first-hand experience of developing and implementing talent measurement strategy at a senior level in big multinational businesses. Drawing on current research and the authors vast experience working with such global companies as Sony, Prudential, Novartis, Nike, among others.
