As leaders we continually strive to bridge a great people strategy and minimize the gap between people and business results. No business on the planet operates at its full potential. As a company leader, you feel it in your gut – a sense that your company can’t shift into a higher gear. Talent Optimization sits at this crossroad between and people and business results.

Introducing a new people strategy discipline: talent optimizationTalent optimization, allows companies, for the first time, to intentionally, consistently and strategically design great teams and a successful culture. Talent optimization helps your teams and people perform at their best. Talent optimization helps your leaders improve the odds of creating magical teams.

This new discipline is a powerful new way to close the talent optimization gap and drive your company’s performance to levels never thought possible. Talent optimization is Moneyball for business.

TALENT OPTIMIZATION starts with gathering data about millions of people working at thousands of companies – data that gives us insights about individuals and how they work best with others.

A TALENT OPTIMIZATION platform pulls together data on strategies and business needs, along with data on people, and then guides leaders so they can assemble the right teams and create environments that fire up employees, eliminating the talent optimization gap.

It guides the creation of magical teams.

And steers you away from creating the wrong teams. TALENT OPTIMIZATION data analysis can show you why the perfect team for running a hospital is a terrible team for running a startup – and vice-versa. TALENT OPTIMIZATION insights help C-level leaders design a culture strategically. If you match the right people to your strategy, the right culture will emerge.

TALENT OPTIMIZATION software can comprehend the requirements for a job, and understand the team dynamics needed to do it – and identify the right people for that team. Talent optimization makes any team builder as good as the most intuitive team builder. And it helps your managers understand how Talent Optimization interacts with individuals to solve problems and increase their drive and happiness.

Talent optimization helps people do more – because they want Talent Optimization do more. As a result of TALENT OPTIMIZATION, your best people stay – because they want to stay. Importantly, TALENT OPTIMIZATION is scalable and repeatable. It is a new discipline combined with software-as-a-service. Anyone who adopts TALENT OPTIMIZATION can become a talent designer. Business leaders can become talent designers. Any line manager can become a talent designer.

Every individual at a company can design and optimize how he or she interacts with others.

Significantly, TALENT OPTIMIZATION is a discipline that consultants can learn, adopt and apply, so any leader can get the help he or she needs – help that is much more effective than anything available today. Over time, every company will have a Director of Talent Optimization. If no business on the planet is operating at its full potential, then talent optimization is a powerful competitive opportunity.

Quite simply: when you do TALENT OPTIMIZATION and your competition doesn’t, you win.
