The WatchmanAttracting and retaining the best available people is likely to become even more challenging as the competition for high-performer and high-potential management intensifies. As the business world changes, so newer different, more sophisticated, yet radical, skills and understanding will be needed. The inevitable trend towards globalisation, higher technology and more diffuse organisations structures and information networks is likely to mean a far greater demand for employees with specific skills.

For some it is an “exclusive” mode of talent management which is characterised by a concentration in “talent pools” of employees who are at the top, or identified as having the potential to get to the top. A more “inclusive” approach recognises that there are various key positions to fill in any organisation as well as a future pipeline of the “appropriate” skills to fill all of these positions, whatever the level.
