Assignment: Gaps in Talent
In order to develop talent, an organization must first identify a gap in the talent pool. This may be an existing or anticipated gap consistent with the long-term strategic objectives of an organization. Once the talent gaps have been identified, these and other questions may be examined: How might we select potential talent that might fill these gaps? What are the different evaluation methods for recognizing talent? What are the strengths and weaknesses of these evaluation methods?
