Strong Suit 152: You've Got a Sales Strategy, Marketing Strategy, Product Strategy. But No Talent Strategy?


I just don’t get it.
Every week, I meet with growth company executives. And I ask to see their Talent Strategy.
All I get is blank stares.
How can you possibly expect to grow — and have the talent to fuel that growth — without a gameplan around people?
So, I went out to find an expert on this topic. And I landed a whale!
Bertrand Dussert is VP of HCM (human capital management) Transformation for Oracle. In this role, he serves as HR transformation & executive advisor to some of Oracle’s largest clients. Prior to Oracle, Bertrand was the global leader for HR shared services, recruitment operations, and workforce planning for American Express.
In this 20-minute discussion, Bertrand and I talk about the importance of developing a talent strategy that maps to your business strategy. What does it consist of, how to execute it, and why so many executives miss the boat.
Don’t be one of them.
