“The Talent Management Best Practices Standard is an excellent tool to assist organisations in building competitive advantage through their talent practices. I find the audit instrument based on the standard useful in getting a comprehensive overview of the organization's talent practices and identifying where the focus of the talent management strategy should be. The standard also includes some practical tools that will assist organisations in operationalizing their talent management strategy in an effective way. The Talent Management Best Practices Standard is a remarkable piece of work that will assist organisations in making sense of talent management in a structured manner.”
