 Reinventing Talent Management presents a fresh and modern approach to talent management. By connecting value, strategy, and people, William Schiemann identifies three make-or-break factors  that contribute to both organizational and individual success. These three factors - Alignment, Capabilities, and Engagement (ACE) - are keys to maximizing the value contribution of your people to your most critical organizational goals.

With Schiemann's breakthrough talent framework, you'll learn to identify, develop, and retain top talent, as well as create a workforce that is aligned with your organizational strategy, delivers superior products and services to customers, and is fully engaged in meeting your goals. With real-world examples, in-depth research, and powerful diagnostic tools, Reinventing Talent Management gives you the resources to grow individual and organizational value in an increasingly competitive marketplace.
