“One of the defining characteristics [of
the change] is that it will be less driven
by countries or corporations and more
driven by real people. It will unleash
unprecedented creativity, advancement of knowledge,
and economic development. But at the same time, it
will tend to undermine safety net systems and penalize
the unskilled.” —Clyde Prestowitz, Three Billion New Capitalists

That’s why they will most likely
be wrong.”

COMPETITORS:
“The best swordsman in the world doesn’t need to
fear the second best swordsman in the world;
no, the person for him to be afraid of is some
ignorant antagonist who has never had a sword
in his hand before; he doesn’t do the thing he
ought to do, and so the expert isn’t prepared
for him; he does the thing he ought not to do
and often it catches the expert out and ends
him on the spot.”

special about your work,
no matter how hard you apply
yourself you won’t get noticed, and

Diversity = profit

“Where do good new ideas
come from? That’s simple!
From differences. Creativity
comes from unlikely
juxtapositions. The best
way to maximize
differences is to mix ages,
cultures and disciplines.” —

“Our business needs a massive transfusion of talent,


and talent, I believe, is most likely to be found
among non-conformists, dissenters
and rebels.”

“Diversity defines the
health and wealth of
nations in a new century.
Mighty is the mongrel. The hybrid is hip. The impure, the
mélange, the adulterated, the blemished, the rough, the black-
and-blue, the mix-and-match – these people are inheriting the
earth. Mixing is the new norm. Mixing trumps isolation. It
spawns creativity, nourishes the human spirit, spurs economic
growth and empowers nations.”

Traditional People Process
The Traditional Talent Management Process

Acquire Deploy Develop Retain

 Traditional approaches:
 Do not allow individuals or organizations the
flexibility they need to grow
 Are costly (firms spend 50 times more on recruiting
than training)
 Focus on metrics and outcomes, rather than what
really matters to talent
 Do not get to the heart of where value is created
 Often are divorced from broader business aims,
such as strategic goals
