Talent management is the piece that connects the two.”<br />–Padmasree Warrior, CTO of Cisco<br />A growing number of companies have recognized the need to develop supply chain management expertise. However, companies face a giant obstacle to achieving this goal: the shortage of trained supply chain management professionals at all levels. – AMR Research<br />The greatest challenge for organizations is not to develop a talent management strategy, but to keep it alive and up to date. The global economy is changing rapidly, and the talent management strategy has to keep pace with business strategy.–The Economist Intelligence Unit<br />One of the most important sources of value for any organization today is its people, from current and future leaders to front-line employees. – Accenture Research<br />A talent management program must focus on strategic business needs; not just top performers and younger staff members – Trainingzone.co.uk <br />“Executives worldwide overwhelmingly recognize talent management as integral to their ability to Innovate.” –The Economist Intelligence Unit<br />“The process of attracting and retaining profitable employees, as it is increasingly more competitive between firms and of strategic importance, has come to be known as the war for talent.” – Wikipedia.org<br />“In the face of intensifying competition, advances in technology, and shifts in customer preferences… organizations need to learn more than ever.”– Harvard Business Review<br />
