Video Book Club: One Page Talent Management

Posted 09.21.2010

Talent management is one of those areas where the best intentions can quickly turn into a complicated mess that everybody hates. Fortunately, Marc Effron and Miriam Ort are here to save us from ourselves with their book, One Page Talent Management.

In this week’s book club video, I share three simple (and whack up the side of the head obvious) design principles that Marc and Miriam apply to designing talent management initiatives such as performance reviews, 360 degree feedback and succession planning. I like their book a lot because their process of applying some basic design principles to common processes is one that has application far beyond the realm of talent management and human resources. It’s a great book for anyone charged with developing talent. That’s just about any leader; not just those in the talent management function.
