As the rate of change and uncertainty in many organizations continues to accelerate, many firms recognize the importance of agile and flexible talent management approaches. This 34-page resource guide provides insights on the concept of Total Talent Management (TTM)– an approach that integrates the full range of talent sources – from traditional full-time employees to the various contingent workers with whom an organization works. It is based on a strategy that applies multiple resources to achieve the desired outcome, each from a different engagement and capability model. This holistic approach to talent management can accelerate an organization’s ability to respond to shifting market conditions with the right expertise and skills. While there are several insights in this report, a few pages to point to are: a) p.12 includes a TTM maturity diagnostic that organizations can use to quickly determine the extent to which they employ TTM , b) p.18 provides a decision tree for determining how different TTM solutions can meet specific talent needs. In case you missed it, I made a post several months ago based on an article by Dave Ulrich titled, From Workforce to Worktask Planning. In the article, Dave offers a 7-step model for breaking work down into specific tasks or activities. The model helps identify which tasks require strategic, creative, and unique solutions that are more likely to be done by full-time employees who become a strategic differentiation source. For the remaining tasks, organizations can use their other TTM channels to deliver the work.
