As a whole, this solution simplifies, speeds, and improves the quality of talent planning and decision making.

Linking Talent to Value

Linking Talent to Value is a proprietary methodology developed in partnership with Sandy Ogg and It identifies the roles that drive the most value for an organization and ensures that these roles are filled by the best talent capable of delivering that value.

Talent to Value aims to prioritize how CEOs and business leaders will develop and manage the talent in those critical roles, in pursuit of the organization’s value aspiration.
