We believe in the power of people, and want to help organizations to gain the best from their talent.
Organizational agility is determined to a great extent by the agility of the people that make up the organization. The challenge is therefore to employ this people-power as well as possible. Luckily people by their very nature feel the need to develop themselves, to be successful and to deliver a meaningful contribution. That sits in our very genes and characterizes our evolution.
But how can an organization recognize and then make use of this bundled developmental power? And how can an organization provide the meaning that people seek, by which they are motivated? Those turn out to be quite troubling questions.
With this book we want to help you to utilize optimally the unique power of your human capital. This book provides insight into the relationships and application of all relevant components of agile talent management. With the concepts that we present here organizations can create the right context for their most-important quality: agility. Only then – such is our firm belief – is an organization assured of sustainable results . . .
