Book description

With contributions from leading scholars and practitioners, this Cambridge Companion examines the topical issue of talent management from a strategic perspective, mapping out insights from a number of related fields including strategy, organisational learning, marketing and supply chain management. The authors examine the challenges faced when viewing talent management in a global context, showing how both comparative and international HRM thinking have become increasingly important when, for example, managing talent in emerging markets or trying to globalise the talent management function. The book concludes with a valuable summary of key learning points about talent management for both practitioners and researchers, as well as a discussion of the most fruitful areas for future research. This Companion will be an essential resource for academic researchers, graduate students and practitioners of global strategic talent management.


‘By defining the boundaries of the field, developing important cross-disciplinary bridges, and posing a range of important questions for academics and practitioners alike, this book puts the 'strategic' into 'strategic talent management'.'

Wayne F. Cascio - Distinguished Professor and Robert H. Reynolds Chair in Global Leadership, University of Colorado

‘Paul Sparrow, Hugh Scullion and Ibraiz Tarique have done a brilliant job with Strategic Talent Management: Contemporary Issues in International Context. This book brings together a stellar collection of scholars from around the world to examine and critique the concept of Strategic Talent Management - a term that is frequently invoked but often poorly understood. I have no doubt that this book will become a 'must cite' in the management literature.’

Peter J. Dowling - La Trobe University, Australia

'Assembling some of the greatest current thinkers on talent management, this book brings insight and wisdom to this crucial and complex topic whilst debunking some myths and suggesting new avenues of questioning. A must read for anyone determined to understand more about how talented people are discovered and developed.'

Lynda Gratton - London Business School
