Chess Pieces


Most companies don’t know how to assemble high-performing teams.  They don’t know how to manage employees in a way that pushes everyone to the top of their game. They create a business strategy. They monitor their business results. But they don’t do the key “people work” in between—and they fail to reach their goals.  This is where talent optimization can help.  

Talent optimization is a four-part discipline that aligns your business strategy with your people strategy for optimal business results.  At its core is the collection, analysis, and application of people data. Talent optimization utilizes quantitative data and analytics so you can comprehend job requirements, identify the best candidates, understand the team dynamics needed to accomplish business goals, and manage employees in a way that pushes everyone to the top of their game.

Here are the four aptitudes of Talent Optimization:

  1. Diagnose: Measure critical people data, analyze that data in the context of your business, and prescribe remedies as needed.

  2. Design: Create and continuously evolve your people strategy.

  3. Hire: Use talent optimization insights based on people data to hire top talent and build cohesive teams.

  4. Inspire: Use data to drive important employee-oriented activities such as career pathing, maintaining organizational culture, and managing people and teams.
