Most change initiatives fail, many if them the result of cultural barriers that James O'Toole so aptly characterizes as "the ideology of comfort and the tyranny of custom." Changing talent practices is certain to create resistance. Effron and Ort identify four talent-building barriers: (1) reluctance to eliminate needless complexity, (2) inability to create value, (3) unwillingness to stay current with cutting-edge research, and (4) reluctance to be transparent and accountable. The material provided is based on four assumptions with which I wholly agree: the available and relevant science works, only effective implementation matters, managers want to succeed, and finally, transparency and accountability guarantee results. OPTM can generate verifiable evidence to support these assumptions and thereby eliminate the aforementioned barriers.
With regard to the significance of "one page," Effron and Ort realize that the key form or process for every talent practice can be reduced to only a single page.Read more ›
It's not likely that a talent professional would use every approach advanced by the authors, but it is very likely that these same professionals can reap a few gems. Kudos to Effron and Ort.

Simple. Easy to use once you adjust to the scale. Scale is broadly defined and not what I am used to.Published on December 2, 2013 by Chessie Trotline
