Talent Optimization Roundtable

Wednesday, September 25, 2019 • 7:30-9:30 a.m • Overland Park Convention Center • Ballroom B

Talent Optimization is a discipline that details what’s required for aligning your business strategy and your talent strategy, so you can achieve your desired business results. Most businesses have some form of a business strategy. Many times, this strategy reads out in technical or functional terms, and the people element is missing or disconnected. At the end of the day, people drive business forward, so we should not forget our people strategy!

In this session, we will talk about the discipline of talent optimization, assess where our organizations
are using a maturity model, and discuss strategies to improve!

Key concepts covered include:

  • Assess my own organization’s level of maturity in each pillar
  • Discuss challenges and opportunities with my peers
  • Learn best practices and tips to move the needle
  • Understand the discipline of talent optimization in business context
  • Learn how to combat the forces of ruin inside of organizations when it comes to talent
  • Assess the talent optimization maturity level of your organization
  • Walk away with best practices to drive talent optimization at every level of leadership inside your organization
