This program is hosted by AGSM Executive Education. Sponsor companies may send 4 participants. Partner business schools may send 1 participant.

So just what does make a company’s talent strategy a game-changer? Game-changing talent strategies are not about silver bullets, killer apps, or a guru’s catchy phrase. In our decades of experience, as both researchers and advisors, we believe that there are certain things that do, indeed, set these companies’ talent strategies apart. First, ICEDR research shows that game-changing companies demonstrate these essential attributes: they are purpose-driven; performance-oriented; and principles-led. And they all have a thread that weaves them even more tightly together: they have superior talent strategies. Game changing talent strategies balance four inherent tensions: They support both strategic and operational superiority; they are globally scaled yet locally relevant; they foster a collective culture yet enable high potentials to thrive as individuals; and their policies endure yet are agile and open to revitalization.

This ICEDR Program will be designed as a forum for dialogue and intensive discussion. This will be a peer exchange, enabling you to discuss what you are working on in the area of building a game-changing talent strategy at your organization. We will engage in a dialogue about what innovative things are happening right now in companies.
