Chapter 1: Smart talent management: the productive fusion of talent and knowledge management
Restricted access

Nearly 15 years ago saw the release of the first edition of this book—one of the first beginning to examine talent management as distinct from traditional human resource management. And particularly unique in the growing discussion of talent management was our assertion, which we still hold today, of the value of combining talent management (TM) and knowledge management (KM) to form a powerful conceptual and practical amalgamation contributing to an organization’s success in our competitive global marketplace. For want of a more precise and scientific label, we call this combination simply ‘smart talent management.’ We hope that this second edition of our book will continue to prompt further examination of the benefits of this combined attention to talent and knowledge management, focusing not only on the establishment of useful definitions, but also on the development and empirical exploration of the smart talent management paradigm.
