Talent Development Toolkits

You might be losing top talent in your business.

A common tension exists between line managers and HR about who is responsible for succession planning and talent development. This comes at the expense of team members who should be invested in but ultimately resign from the organisation.

The first step in correctly identifying, developing and retaining talent is understanding the business’ objectives and the strategies to achieve them, along with one’s own required divisional or functional area contribution to the strategy. The combination of these factors are the foundations supporting continuous organisational growth strategies.

About The Toolkit

To grow an organisation you need to grow its talent, and its line managers’ capacity and capability to create and deliver on the strategy. We complete our succession planning and talent development offering with the Talent Development Toolkit that provides line managers with the required capacity and capabilities to ensure continuous business strategy enablement, through the provision of the right internal people at the right time.

Clear Division of Responsibilities

This product is designed to place HR as a talent development facilitator and enabler;

  • to train line managers
  • to understand the purpose and correct application of the toolkit to their divisions,
  • to further the broader human capital and organisational objective achievement strategies.

The toolkit is therefore used by line managers, based on the rationale that they work most closely with their team and know them best.


Organisation-Wide Talent Development

Identifying, developing and retaining talent in your team is now simplified and the same tools can be applied successfully across the entire organisation if all the steps in the process are followed. The Talent Development Toolkit consists of five modules or phases, each containing step-by-step forms to be completed by the line manager.

  • Overall organisational goals and strategies
  • Divisional goals and strategies (building the overall business strategies)
  • Divisional business units or functional areas goals and strategies
