It is not only essential to have the right product in the market at the right time, but you need to have the right people behind that product. However, in this ever changing market, it is necessary to create a vast talent pool with incredibly divergent skills and talents. Do not focus on which current team members can be groomed to become executives. Instead, focus on what executive goals need to be met and focus on the skills people will need to achieve them. Take the time to really look for the type of people you want within your company, not just their skill sets. You can always train someone to perform a specific task, but it is impossible to instill in someone the drive to succeed, the interest in learning new things, and commitment to the company. The right talent management program will be able to not only hire the best and brightest, but also keep them motivated, energized, and willing to move forward.
