Implementing a solid Talent Optimization Process requires an in-depth understanding of the business strategy. We often forget that without the business strategy, we will be going all kind of places, without getting anywhere. Might be adventurous, but you won't get the hype of reaching a goal.
The Talent Optimization Framework starts with a Diagnose
Diagnose is a method or pinpointing the root cause of gaps—your underlying people problems—and making strategic changes or changes to day-to-day execution. The insights you uncover in diagnose typically point back to the other three aptitudes of talent optimization: design, hire and inspire. Businesses that collect and analyze their people data and then make necessary adjustments proactively will enjoy a more productive and engaged workforce; instead of letting problems build up and fester, addressing them quickly shows employees they care.
