About the book

The microscope on talent is in sharp focus and HR has more programmes and processes to manage talent than ever before. Yet many CEOs continue to see talent management as an escalating risk. The truth is that market realities across the world are so fundamentally different that one size solutions almost never succeed.
Talent Economics is a refreshingly new, outside-in view on talent, which brings workforce analysis, management practice and strategy together. It uses economic inquiry as a discipline to present a brand new perspective in talent management - as simply put - economics is the study of how the forces of supply and demand allocate scarce resources. Talent Economics presents business leaders an opportunity to step back and understand the ebb and flow of global talent, before translating this new understanding into a winning strategy.
