Talent Management: Developing or Preventing Knowledge and Capability

Deborah Blackman, Monica Kennedy

Research output: Contribution to conference (non-published works)Paper

Abstract

This paper discusses the possibility of a growing tension between employee progression and capability development which emerges as a result of talent management strategies. It is argued that the inter-relationship between the increasing trend to develop talent management strategies, combined with skills shortages and the attitudes of ‘Generation Y’ employees, leads to the outcomes being, potentially a reduction, rather an increase, in organisational capability. A qualitative case study is used to demonstrate this potential relationship and develop an agenda for future research.
