i4cp Debuts Playbook to Accelerate Your Talent Development Strategy

A solid talent development strategy is the hallmark of high-impact, high-performance organizations, but crafting a useful strategy is easier said than done.

So how do you overcome the inertia of maintaining the status quo programs that keep you busy and employees somewhat satisfied? And how do you build something with lasting power in the face of today’s dynamic, ever-changing business world?

Talent Development Strategy PlaybookBased on research and the guidance of leading L&D practitioners, i4cp has created a practical, step-by-step Talent Development Strategy Playbook to address these challenges. The playbook, available exclusively to i4cp member organizations, consists of a simple four-step framework with tips, templates, and key questions any talent and L&D practitioner can apply.

i4cp research has made it clear that talent development is an issue of incredible importance, with its impact on all stages of the talent management cycle--from attracting employees to retaining and rewarding high-potentials. The playbook is the latest in a series of materials to help you build a culture of learning and develop top talent faster, better, and in-line with the needs of business units. Related topics recently explored include:

  • Experiential learning
  • Talent mobility
  • Frontline worker development
  • Leaders as teachers
  • Virtual learning
