Talent Management: Eliminating Complexity, Adding Value

Allan Hoving

In their new book, One Page Talent Management: Eliminating Complexity, Adding Value (Harvard Business Press), Marc Effron and his co-author, Miriam Ort, argue that companies unwittingly add layers of complexity to their talent building models—without evaluating whether those components add any value to the overall process. They introduce One Page Talent Management (OPTM): a powerfully simple approach that significantly accelerates a company’s ability to develop better leaders faster. In this podcast, Effron talks with Human Resources IQ Online Community Director Allan Hoving about his revolutionary model that applies Simplicity, Accountability and Transparency in these five key talent practices:

Performance Management

360-Degree Assessments

Talent Review Processes

Engagement Surveys

Competency Development
