Many professional perceive talent management in different perceptions such as recruitment management, performance management, and others can refer it as workforce planning. The different opinions suggest that the concept of talent management is a collection of workforce planning, leadership development and recruitment under the umbrella of performance management.

The ‘war for talent’ has focused on acquiring ‘the best’. Human resources play a significant role in reaching organization effectiveness and performance (Huselid, 1995). Talent has become the key differentiator for human capital management and for leveraging competitive advantage. A talent management strategy covers an organization’s approach towards recruitment and retention, assessment and evaluation, compensation and benefits, performance management, learning development and succession
‘Ensuring that the right person is in the right job at the right time’ (Jackson and Schuler 1990, 235). The definitions included in this set see talent management as a collection of practices, activities and functions typical to the company’s HR Department. Therefore, to manage talent, the HR Department needs to do what it does already, but more quickly (for example, via the Internet or through outsourcing). The authors, often practitioners, who adopt this definition divide it into some of the typical sub-disciplines of human resource management such as recruitment and selection (Olsen 2000), leadership development (Chon, Khurana, and Reeves 2005), performance management (Garger 1999). ‘Systematic effort by an organisation to ensure critical personnel continuity in key positions and encourage individual advancement’ (Rothwell 1994, 6).
How are concepts different from theory? • How is sociological theorization distinct from philosophical or religious inquiry? • Articulate a sociological theory concerning your self-identified area of interest in sociology. • How does this theory account for the agency of the individual? • In what manner does this theory distinguish between relatively “nonrational” and “rational” motivations underlining human behavior?

The recognition that employee skills and knowledge are critical in developing and sustaining competitor advantage has led many organizations to focus on human resources to attract and retain the very best employees. Over the past decade many organizations have sought to develop “talent management” programs to restore their staff recruitment and retention difficulties and to harness the skills of their best employees. This is particularly important in the global economy which is highly transient and fluid, and where supply shortages of skilled workers exist. Effective talent management strategies will improve profitability and increase shareholder value. Hence, it’s important first to define what is a Talent?
A Systems theory is hence a theoretical perspective that analyzes a phenomenon seen as a whole and not as simply the sum of elementary parts. The focus is on the interactions and on the relationships between parts in order to understand an entity’s organization, functioning and outcomes. This perspective implies a dialogue between holism and reductionism (Mele, Pels, & Polese, 2009). Systems theory is an interdisciplinary theory about every system in nature, in society and in many scientific domains as well as a framework with which we can investigate phenomena from a holistic approach (Capra, 1997). Systems thinking come from the shift in attention from the part to the whole, considering the observed reality as an integrated and interacting unicuum of phenomena where the individual properties of the single parts become indistinct (Checkland, 1997; Jackson, 2003).
Talent Management Challenges in IBM The well-noted “War for Talent” concept as articulated by the McKinsey & Company14 report reflects the increasingly competitive market for talent, leaders, and innovative knowledge workers. This report declared that knowledge or talent is now the key factor in driving the effectiveness of many organizations today and in the future. Thus, a company’s capability to attract, develop, and retain talented individuals provides a competitive advantage as the war for talent persists. The McKinsey research included surveys of 13,000 managers and executives across more than 120 companies, along with case studies of 27 leading companies. It found clear evidence that better talent management leads to better performance.
