Nov. 16, 2012 - PRLog -- Following five diligent years of research, University of Greenwich Professor Colin Coulson-Thomas announces the release of a compelling new business and human resources report.

Titled ‘Talent Management 2’ the report proves that any organisation can work with existing people and cultures to achieve their desired growth, as opposed to entering talent wars and hiring expensive ‘stars’.

The 184 page report demonstrates how working with existing key and front-line workers can provide a quicker, cheaper and more sustainable route to high performance organisations.

“Talent management need not be a costly fad. My report sets out a better approach for both people and organisations that is affordable and can deliver multiple objectives,” says Coulson-Thomas, who has also worked extensively as a Change Agent and Transformation Expert.

He continues, “In effect one can ‘have it all’, improving today’s results and increasing people’s ability to handle future challenges and opportunities as they arise.”

According to Coulson-Thomas, many traditional talent management programs are costly and destined to fail.

“By the time many initiatives are implemented, requirements and priorities may have changed, while opportunities are often missed during transformation journeys,” he adds.

The industry-at-large appears to agree with the Professor. In fact, over three quarters of practitioners participating in a poll during the investigation thought talent management is not delivering. About a half thought opportunities are being missed.

Therefore, Talent Management 2 focuses on key roles and tasks, while ensuring that people doing these jobs are enabled to excel by putting relevant critical success factors in place and providing the workgroups concerned with appropriate performance support. Mini case studies support the report’s model, while providing solid real-world examples of its early adopters.

“Paying for talented people may make little sense for organisations that cannot harness, or capture and share, what they do differently. We need to move on from single-issue initiatives such as preparing a few ‘high fliers’ for an unknown future to boosting the performance of today’s key workgroups and quickly delivering multiple benefits for both people and organisations,” Coulson-Thomas adds.

In short, the illuminating report provides an easy-to-read suggested route to building, maintaining and growing an effective and high-performance organization.
