In today’s interconnected global economy, it is becoming increasingly apparent that the key differentiator for the success of a corporation is the talent that they have. When one looks closely at two companies that are in a similar line of business with more or less identical operational models and yet the performance of one is markedly better than another – the difference could be in that intangible asset called “talent”. In a recent whitepaper from one of the leading players in the Enterprise space has highlighted that the differences in ability to attract, develop & retain talent may explain the superior financial performance of companies.

The white paper by Oracle ( which also cites inputs from McKinsey study is a revelation. It points to the markedly better performance of companies that attempt to analyse talent data and metrics. While a number of metrics are cited, we believe the key really is in “competency and skill profiling” which then can be related to a number of other metrics like skills availability, succession planning, quality of hire etc.

At the end of the day, the value of the talent on-board is the repository of his/her skills, capabilities & learnings applied to the organizational context. The skills and capabilities that individuals possess is what an organization takes to market. Isn’t it vital to actually capture, analyse, and further strengthen the most important asset of any organization? So are organizations really paying enough attention to this? Sadly, many aren’t and the main reason is the lack of simple means of building this “human capital asset” inventory.
