The Talent Agenda Organizations spend considerable time identifying and recruiting high-caliber individuals. Sizeable sums are spent on rewarding talent which bring value to the organization in the forms of skills, knowledge, experiences, relationships etc. However, several organizations pay little attention to allocating and continually reallocating this talent to unleash the value of talent by mobilizing talent to the most critical, high value creation roles. Even when we try to do so, we equate role criticality and value to hierarchies. We incorrectly assume that the most critical roles are found in the top 1-2 layers of the organization. In fact, critical positions and critical people can be found throughout an organization.
