management requires companies to define key leadership positions and requirements,
benchmark the ideal attitudes, behaviors and traits for these positions, identify
high potential candidates inside and outside the company, assess their readiness
for these roles, and provide training and developmental experiences to prepare
these individuals for leadership.
Equally important to talent management
is creating a culture of excellence and retaining the top performers already in
place. Smart companies utilize Kristen Armstrong & Associates to design talent
management systems which are a good fit with their organizations' culture, goals,
