A quicker and more cost effective route to the high performance organisation


By Colin Coulson-Thomas



Many talent management programmes are unaffordable and destined to fail.


Talented people can be costly to recruit and difficult to manage and retain.


Fortunes are spent on expensive people who are not engaged, effectively used, or properly supported.


This report sets out a practical and affordable route to building high performance organisations and quickly achieving multiple objectives. The approach it recommends can avoid traditional trade-offs and will benefit people and organisations.


A feature of the report is its mini-case studies, which provide examples of applications of the recommended approach within the report.


Each mini-case illustrates a successful response to a generic challenge facing organisations. For each organisation the mini-case study briefly presents the problem addressed, what was done, results achieved and subsequent situation, what made difference and main learning points.


Case studies include:

  • Avaya
  • B&Q
  • Cisco Systems
  • Eyretel
  • Friends Provident
  • HSBC
  • Mahle
  • Mouchel
  • Nomix
  • Technology Strategy Board
  • The Alliance GP Cluster
