Upcoming Alumni Webcast – Winning with talent: Radical advice for reinventing talent and HR, with Global Managing Partner Dominic Barton
April 03, 2018
11 – 12 p.m. EDT / 5 – 6 p.m. CEST / 8:30 – 9:30 p.m. IST

Talent has never been more important to the success of an organization. The speed of change and pace of disruption is increasing. Business strategy is no longer about planning years ahead, but about sensing and seizing new opportunities in a constantly changing environment. This makes acquiring, managing, and deploying talent more important and challenging than ever, and – when done effectively – real sources of competitive advantage.

During this session, Global Managing Partner Dominic Barton (London) and Senior Partner Bill Schaninger (Philadelphia) will discuss Dominic’s recently released book, Talent Wins. Co-authored with Ram Charan and Dennis Carey, Talent Wins is a CEO playbook that provides a comprehensive framework on how to win with talent, drawing on the latest and sharpest knowledge in McKinsey’s Organization Practice. It argues that successful, talent-first companies deploy their people as effectively as they deploy capital, by focusing the Board on talent and creating a strategic ‘G3’ (CEO-CFO-CHRO) executive team. Using analytics, talent-first companies know their employees as well as they understand their finances, and create flexible organizations that empower those people to create as much value as possible. Ultimately, the book contends that in today’s world, where the players matter more than the game, talent wins.
