Why attend this Business Breakfast?

The traditional talent management approaches most of which originate in the previous century are no longer fit for purpose. Yet, it has never been clearer that everything comes back to talent management. Financial performance, new technological developments, digital organizations are all driven by talent as it drives momentum within the business. Digital and agile ways of working are forcing us to rethink our conventional ways of doing. We notice that companies’ core businesses and functions are largely replacing long-range planning and ‘waterfall’ organizational change transformation models with nimbler methods that allow them to adapt and innovate more quickly.

Agile isn’t just for tech anymore. HR is adopting those principles in turn to reflect and support what the rest of the organization is doing. It means moving away from a HR rules- and top-down approach toward a simpler and faster model driven by feedback from participants. This new paradigm has really taken off in performance management. (In a 2017 Deloitte survey, 79% of global executives rated agile performance management as a high organizational priority.) But other HR and talent practices are rapidly following: how they approach recruitment and rewards, how they evaluate talent, what skills they emphasize and develop and what they do to facilitate learning in line with those new ways of work.

Who is this Business Breakfast for?

This breakfast event is relevant for Senior Managers, HR and L&D professionals in international companies and organizations.

The MCE Business Breakfast session will cover:

  • Why traditional TM approaches are no longer fit for purpose and that there is a time for change
  • Current trends of the future world of work and a looming talent crunch
  • The business case for a new approach: fluid, agile talent management
  • What is ‘agile’ and what would it look like in talent management
  • Emerging new ‘agile’ ways of practice in the areas of performance management, development and succession
  • Recommendations for talent and HR professionals to prepare for and anticipate this ‘agile’ world
