Managing Talent

According  to Jack, managers should devote a lot of time, energy, and money to  your A and A-minus players, and to let your C players go. By contrast,  Patty McCord dislikes the term “A players” and she writes: “Sometimes  it’s important to let even people who have done a great job go, in order  to make space for high performers in new functions or with different  skills.”

Discuss your ideas about talent management, using the prompts below:

  • What  do you think about the concept of investing in your “A players” more  than other employees? Is it still relevant in today’s business  environment?
  • Do management practices in your organization align more to Welch or McCord’s approach to talent management?
  • Based  on this week’s articles, describe one change you would recommend in  managing talent at your organization. How would this change produce  better results?

Post your initial response by  Wednesday, midnight of your time zone, and reply to at least 2 of your  classmates’ initial posts by Sunday, midnight of your time zone.
