A writer on talent development recently noted that if businesses managed their money as carelessly as they manage their people, most would be bankrupt. Many businesses that have world class financial controls and policies have no comparable processes for developing leaders. This programme focuses on the business benefits of taking talent seriously: no talent, no numbers. 


The objective of this programme is to develop participants’ knowledge and expertise in managing talent strategically. The course is designed to be relevant to a broad spectrum of talent management issues faced by managers and senior executives, and reevaluates how best practice firms manage their talent management efforts and build leadership talent for the present and the future. Synthesising the latest scientific research with the professor’s own rich international experience, this training programme provides practical frameworks and models of best practice in the field of talent management.


This programme is designed for senior executives concerned about meeting present and future talent needs of their organisations. 


Participants in this programme will gain:

  • A strategic roadmap to guide talent management efforts
