Talent Strategy & Organizational Alignment

The most pressing imperative for businesses today is the quest for growth with the biggest challenge being the talent and leadership needed to secure and sustain it. But it’s not just people. It is the right people, in the right place, at the right time. Equally important, it is the entire organization acting in harmony to execute strategies for winning results.

With a combination of individual and organizational components, our Talent Strategy and Organizational Alignment practice will help you transform your organization by enabling you to engage people, ignite potential, overcome inertia, generate motion, enhance teamwork, coordinate action, and actually activate your organization’s strategy.

Services to enhance business transformation and growth.

  • Talent Strategy Consulting
    Many organizations struggle to achieve results because the relationship between their goals and their people processes are murky or nonexistent. With the use of a proprietary strategy decoder, our talent consulting services provide an intensive, efficient, and collaborative process that enables you to first hone in on the talent implications of your core business strategies, and then confidently define, prioritize, and sequence the critical talent capabilities needed to activate strategies and drive their execution. The net result is senior leadership buy-in with your emergent talent strategy.
  • Organization Alignment 
    Together we conduct a comprehensive review of the key drivers for aligned roles and leadership actions. These include a strategy for converting plans to action, organizing for success, processes to clear the pathway, people who ignite talent, culture to build engagement, and critical technology elements. What you get is a clear set of recommendations for charting a path forward in ensuring that structure follows strategy as you work to optimize organization performance.
  • Four Dimensions of Leadership and Talent 
    Korn Ferry’s assessment services are focused on helping clients measuring the four key dimensions that are the foundations of human behavior — predispositions, motivators, experiences, and competencies. With these services, you obtain a complete picture of the individual qualities that will drive performance. Using the same framework, we also help you simultaneously determine your organizational success requirements for specific roles. By using both sets of information, you are able to identify gaps between the leaders that you have and the leaders that you need. This enables you to pinpoint the key qualities to select and promote against as well as where to target critical gaps and development strategies. Based on decades of research and experience from the best in the talent business, we help you take the guesswork out of your most important talent decisions. You can more accurately identify the pool of leaders who are high performers today, the ones who have the potential to perform in more-demanding roles in the future, those who are ready for the next challenge now or very soon, and the ones who are an immediate fit for a key position. One of the anchors of the Korn Ferry Four Dimensions of Leadership and Talent is the Korn Ferry Leadership Architect™ Global Competency Framework. The Korn Ferry Leadership Architect™ makes it easier for your organization to hire and develop the talent you need while and strengthening your selection, development, succession, performance, diversity, and inclusion efforts.
  • Talent Analytics 
    Enables you to see and hear the story that your data is trying to tell you by accelerating the mining of talent data for richer insight and wiser decision-making. Provides a mirror to look backward on aggregate historical data to inform decision-making and drive continual improvement. Offers a microscope-like lens to elicit deep understanding of current conditions based on data mining of your data combined with Korn Ferry data sets. Delivers predictive analytics to guide talent investments and future business strategy.

In summary, you get access to a comprehensive suite of global and cultural integration services, designed to meet the needs of your organization as it transforms and expands.
