HSMC's Professor Martin Powell and Dr Joan Durose are part of the team that recently published a report on Talent Management in the NHS Managerial Workforce. In 2004 Talent Management was introduced into the NHS. Although Talent Management was already undertaken a more systematic approach may contribute to the three main leadership problems of the NHS: recruiting and retaining Chief Executives; a more diverse or inclusive leadership or an 'NHS of all the talents'; and benefits in terms of organisational performance, as organisations can achieve competitive advantage through people.
The aims of study were to :
Explore and document the Managing of Talent and Talent Management approaches that assisted a group of administrators and managers from 1970s to 2000s.
Provide an examination of the facilitators and barriers to talented individuals achieving their potential.
Evaluate the impact of different schemes on individuals.
Explore how valuaes, motivations and beliefs link with managerial careers and to examine how Talent Management links with organisational success.
