The Talent Grid - online


Being able to challenge and being organisation sensitive

"The Talent Grid"

Recognising leadership potential is no easy matter. It is one of the major research subjects in management literature. At this site you will find a description of the Talent Grid. What does this model have to add? It is an accessible and simple theory, which has evolved from practical experience. The model has proved to be one that is easy to use by both professionals and management for the selection, assessment and development of talent. The added value of the Talent Grid lies primarily in the fact that it provides the opportunity for communicating in one 'language' on the issue of management qualities. By placing the Talent Grid on the Internet, the authors wish not only to make the theory available to the public at large, but also to invite readers to respond. With the addition of supplementary insights, the model can grow further.

The text of this site was the basis of an article that appeared in "Gids voor Personeelsmanagement (Personnel Management guide)" (July/August 1999).
