The purpose of this paper is to explain a proven systematic approach to organisational talent development (OTD).
The work of psychology‐based consultancy The Learning Curve (TLC), their four‐stage process, and two case studies is used as a basis to demonstrate the importance of a sequential plan to develop talent inside an organisation.
Productivity and profit increase in organisations that embrace a systematic approach to talent development.
Many of the methods employed by TLC have led to engagement and retention of the best staff among clients, who go on to sustain the talent development in cost‐effective ways.
The paper takes a holistic look at the challenge of engaging and retaining good staff, while recognising the importance of budgetary and resource constraints as we slowly come out of recession.
