2/7/13: Top Talent Development Posts this Week

February 7, 2013 by Wally Bock

Every week, I review blogs and other publications that cover talent development to find the very best talent development posts. This week, you’ll find pointers to pieces about selection trends, executive education, educational requirements, and company values.

From DDI’s Talent Management Intelligence: 2013 Selection Trends: Managing Uncertainty for Success

“Black and white is out. Uncertainty remains with us this season, but will inspire, rather than depress, creativity in selection design. This uncertain environment has been described as VUCA – a business environment characterized by volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity.  In this sneak-peek preview, we’ll reveal HR must-haves and look at how top-performers are dressing for success.”

From  Morten T. Hansen: Executive Education Is Ripe for Online Disruption

“The online revolution is sweeping through the education industry. Khan Academy is leading the disruption of elementary school education, while Mass Online Open Courses (MOOCs) with 100,000+ students are jolting college education. Meanwhile, most professors and many schools and colleges are going about business as before, delivering ancient standard format lectures in a lecture hall to 200+ bored students.”

From Mel Kleiman: Do You Really Need a Degree to Get a Job?

“Most employee recruiting ads read something like this: ‘…high school diploma required or college degree required or MBA required.’ I have one question; WHY?”

From Derek Irvine: Barclays CEO on Company Values – Live Them or Leave

“Your core values, the foundation of your company culture, cannot be points of negotiation in the daily work. Your CEO must lead and reinforce that message.”
