Strategic Talent Alignment

The strategy is finalized. You’ve started executing. But does your organization have the right people in the right roles to go the distance?

For most organizations, the answer is no. Strategies are growth-related — by geography, market share or new markets, to name just a few. Chances are, you don’t have the talent you need for new roles or you don’t have your top talent in the right roles. This failure to align people with strategy is a leading failure point for many organizations. Using our approach can help you find the talent to carry out your strategies effectively.

Find — and close the gaps between strategy and success.

Strategic Effectiveness Architect® can help you translate any strategy into organizational capabilities. Organizational capabilities are the knowledge and skills of the organization — in other words, what you do well and what you don’t. Once they are defined, you can turn to defining competencies and finding the right people. Visualizing the gap between where you are today and where you want to be tomorrow will give you a reality check on the likelihood of success. Then you can work on the steps needed to close the gap.

Create a talent road map.

Step 1: Align your strategy to core capabilities using Strategic Effectiveness Architect® Sort Cards. Find where you are and define where you want to be.

Step 2: Translate these into competencies — both what you have now and what you need in the future.

Step 3: Compare competencies to your current bench in your top team. Find gaps and misplaced talent.

Step 4: Create Success Profiles for mission critical roles with Competency Profile Manager (CPM).
