Hello Ari:
I read the following from the cited reference above.

"The core concept of talent acquisition is to get away from the 'fill in the box' thinking to one that is more pro-active and much closer to building the skill sets required to achieve business success."
We need to differentiate between talent and skill sets.
If talent means skills, then we don't need the word talent.
How do you define talent?
How do you measure talent?
How do you know what talent is demanded by each position?
If we don't measure talent, can we hire for talent?

Talent and Skill-Sets are different.
Talent includes: Relevant Experience, Personality Type, Job-Fitment and skill-sets required to perform the given role and responsibility.
Hence, skill-sets are not equal to talent. One of the component of talent is required skill-sets.

Hello Sanjeev:

>Hence, skill-sets are not equal to talent. One of the component of talent is required skill-sets. <

We take a more limited view of talent, see below.

If we want to be sure that all new hires and employees become long-term successful employees, we need to make sure that all employees are competent and have a talent for their jobs.

For employees to find job success...

talent is necessary, but not sufficient.

skills are necessary, but not sufficient.

training is necessary, but not sufficient.

orientation is necessary, but not sufficient.

knowledge is necessary, but not sufficient.

competency is necessary, but not sufficient.

qualifications are necessary, but not sufficient.

experience may be necessary, but not sufficient.

effective management is necessary, but not sufficient.

successful interviews are necessary, but not sufficient.

Talent is the only necessary condition for job success that employers cannot provide their employees and schools cannot provide their students. Employers must hire talent, see the book "First, Break All the Rules, What the world's greatest managers do differently."

Most employers don't measure talent so they can't hire for talent even if they do hire the best and the brightest.

How do you measure talent?
