GTM: Leading a Strategic Initiative

Global Talent Management (GTM) is a major investment in the current and future human capital of an organization. To be successful and sustainable as an organizational initiative, it requires leadership and must be reflective of overarching strategy. In addition, as an organizational initiative, it is subject to the influences of the organization┬┐s culture that can serve to help or hinder its success. While human resources professionals are experts in how to execute GTM, they also must understand the implications of implementing such an initiative within the context of an organization. Their ability to help leaders take ownership of GTM, view it strategically, and counteract the negative effects of organizational culture is a critical success factor. Through lectures, readings, case studies, group discussions, and group presentations, students will learn how to enable organizational leaders to incorporate GTM as a strategic initiative in ways that will maximize success and sustainability.
