More About the Author

Janice is a leading thinker and writer on Talent Management as well as being a sought-after chair and speaker at conferences in the UK and abroad. Most recently she was a keynote speaker at the C&D Talent Management conference in Mexico.

Janice believes that globalization together with social and technological change have transformed the way organizations operate and compete in ways that are talked about on a piecemeal basis but still not fully appreciated as a whole. In this new world of constant innovation, businesses must be agile and future-focused. Command and control management no longer works effectively. Tomorrow's leaders must not just talk about the importance of their people and their talent, they must live a new philosophy - which is discussed in her new book Strategic Talent Development.

Janice's ideas are informed by her work as a board level consultant and coach-mentor for international companies and by her formative experience in HR roles with organizations such as International Harvester and Midland Montagu where she was head of training and development. She co-leads UK leadership and HR consultancy, The Scala Group, as well ACE, a consortium of European HR consultancies.


Janice is a Chartered Companion of the CIPD (Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development), having served with distinction as Vice-President, Learning, and Talent Development. She is Visiting Professor of Claude Littner Business School of University of West London, and a governor of the University of Portsmouth, where she is chair of the human resources committee. She is also a faculty member of C & D Business School in Mexico City. Originally trained as a linguist she is fluent in Italian, French and Spanish.

Product Description

Review

"

Her book has two major strengths. First, when Janice Caplan discusses a topic she has is likely to have a good understanding and to display sound judgement. Secondly, she writes clearly and structures her material well. This makes for a good read and the checklists and guidance she offers are very practical. Overall this makes it a very good buy for the learning and development professional who is five years or further into their career. Anyone less experienced could struggle with the sheer weight of information and the challenge that it represents.

"

Here obviously speaks a person with oodles of years of operating in the commercial world and Caplan puts this experience (of which she has plenty ending up as VP of Talent Development for our mother ship, the revered CIPD) to extremely good use by making the text easy to follow and which can be applied practically without too much palaver rather than having to wade through the treacle that is supposed to pass for theory offered up by various other writers on the same subject.

Format: Hardcover
For several reasons I am very grateful to Janice for writing this book. It has saved me a considerable amount of time which I would have had to spend researching the subject; it has ensured I am very well informed on what must be the most critical factor impacting on an organisation's success; it is rich with case studies, models, learning points; bullet point summaries and references for further reading.

Above all it brings together all of the critical factors which make for high performing organisations into a well presented and informed approach which should appeal to: top team members; H.R. professionals, consultants and students.I particularly like the way Janice links "employee engagement to talent management" something I have been wrestling with for quite a while.

Format: Hardcover
Since McKinsey announced `The War for Talent', organisations have been struggling with the issues of defining talent, developing talent, and providing structures and systems to retain talent within their employment.

This book creates an innovative exploration that allows for the true proposition of talent strategies to be implemented. It enables practitioners and managers alike to create a common currency and language across people development with lots of practical examples and case studies.

This is a comprehensive and unique appraisal that really starts to define the nature of and necessity of `inclusive talent management.' Talent is not just about `high potential, people of particular worth.' This narrow focus has achieved exclusion and engendered commitment issues within the workplace. It is high time these issues were addressed. Caplan outlines several factors that determine a need for inclusion. Change is so rapid in the current climate that past performance does not necessarily determine future performance. Roles are also interchangeable and interconnected and talent can be latent.

This book demonstrates courage by offering insights into these, and other key areas by drawing on a range of in-depth case studies, which are presented in full. The book helps the reader draw the most relevant examples from them, and a guide to developing a talent management system is presented through the identification of a number of strategic perspectives, and operational dimensions that put this into practice. This book is a must for those responsible for managing people in their organisations.

Using a classic film analogy, the tornado has hit and it is very clear we're not in Kansas anymore.

Format: Hardcover
Amongst the wealth of literature on talent management, this book stands out by proposing that talent management applies to everyone in an organisation. It's a very practical guide not only to 'how' talent management integrates with other aspects of HRM but 'why' this is so vital to future organisational success. An essential read for all HR practitioners, CEOs and business leaders.

Format: Hardcover
The Value of Talent is a breath of fresh air on a topic that for some years has become quite stale; becoming obsessed with defining what talent means rather than what value it can generate. Janice Caplan is clear from page 1 about what she is setting out here - a pragmatic grounded view for both HR and leaders to understand and implement. The logical approach which she adopts as we are taken through from strategy to implementation is simple and sticks with the reader. The use of case studies are particularly helpful in illustrating how her views can be implemented. But moreover the practitioner perspective is strong and you feel a sense of the challenges that she herself has gone through in implementing value add talent strategy.

I'd recommend this to anyone who wants to accelerate their talent agenda and really get the value of talent
