A simple model to explain talent optimization

over 3 years agoFebruary 27, 2019
Key Takeaways for me that are good introductory talking points:
Talent Optimization Demystifies how the people strategy connects to the business strategy to insure those business results
Promises Reducing RISK that the strategy will be achieved
PROTECTION of the business RESULTS which is the most important outcome

I like it!  

Can you think about demonstrating a 5 minute whiteboard version to grab the CEO's attention?  Then, elaborate each of the main areas, given more.  

I would suggest a whiteboard that asks questions to get the leader talking and engaged.

Love the clarity & simplicity.  We've been conversing with clients for 17 or more years about aligning their People Process to Strategy.  We've demonstrated that by structuring the PRO (yes, we always believed it was our differentiating factor)the  client aligns the Organisation (structure & talent required) to strategy.  We would then follow it by Hiring and Managing to achieved ENGAGED EMPLOYEE STATUS.  Our contribution (and commitment) to clients has been the achievement of ENGAGED EMPLOYEES which is a Management Responsibility.  PI gives them the knowhow and the tools to achieve this.  You've now provided us with a simplified version of visually conveying the process.  LOVE IT.  Thank you.

It is interesting how PI brings out forces of disengagement and how to deal with Talent optimization between Strategy and Business results for clear understanding.            People as the missing link and how talent optimization impact strategy execution is profound. Speaking all these in the language of the the CEO should be the approach.

Loved the simplicity!

I'm new to Predictive Index but I must say we've been pushing organizations on how important culture and people are within an organization for years.  The Talent Optimization model is an excellent way to have an engaging conversation on aligning the business strategy through people to gain the business results companies are looking for well done.

Debra, I agree!  We have always looked at ALIGNING the business strategy to the operational behaviors (the right people, doing the right things, in the right roles, in the right way).  This framework actually changes the conversation a bit to provide a data driven tool to define, hire, and manage those RIGHT people to get to the intended results!

I love this idea and how it really assists with the visualization aspect.  This is great for studying and memorizing, so I personally can become a subject matter expert, and then be able to provide meaningful value to my clients.  Thanks PI- this was awesome!  I love the "TIE FIGHTER" Concept- Am I pronouncing that correctly?  :) Thanks again!

I love the use of white-boarding to demonstrate the connection of Business Strategy to Business Results with the critical in-between step of Talent Optimization.   To truly show that the process of People Engagement is an on-going; revolving and recurring process that addresses the key aptitudes found in Design; Hire; and Inspire aspects of your most critical asset, your people.    The flow that you demonstrated Matt and Dottie is spot-on.   I can't wait to use and engage.

Great information and asking clients questions to tie their organization's story to the model is key. I love the suggestion at the end on ways to personalize the "presentation."

Great great great! Loved the insight. My only wish was that it was positioned more as a mock explaination versus me not really following if some points were for me to say or were just FYI's for me to take note of lol either way thank you and much appreciated!
