Product Details


“Ed Lawler continues to be the iconic thinker in the HR field. This book offers both a synthesis of what has happened in talent and a forward-looking preview to what is next. Ed has a unique knack for identifying future trends and offering advice on how to deal with them. What a marvelous contribution that shapes both theory and practice. Touché!”
—Dave Ulrich, Rensis Likert Professor, Ross School of Business, University of Michigan, and Partner, The RBL Group

“At a time of significant change, many of the traditional assumptions of talent management no longer hold. But what are the new assumptions? Who better to help us understand this than Professor Lawler? In this fine and meticulously researched book, he shows the path forward. An absolute must-read for talent management executives.” 
—Lynda Gratton, Professor of Management Practice, London Business School

“Ed Lawler has once again taken conventional wisdom and rethought, reshaped, and reinvented it. Reinventing Talent Management helps operations and HR leaders utilize talent management as a competitive strategic weapon, with a bias toward agility, differentiation, and analytics-based decision making. It reflects where the changing world of work is heading and also leads us there.
—Ian Ziskin, President, EXec EXcel Group LLC

“It’s the age-old question: how do managers and organizations find and retain talent? Ed Lawler’s three-pronged prescription is timeless: link talent management closely to the organization’s overall strategy; develop agile approaches to recruitment, staffing, performance management, and rewards that can respond quickly to changing conditions; and base everything you do on evidence, not tradition. Ed shows the way through his meticulous research and engaging writing style.”
—Wayne Cascio, Distinguished Professor, University of Colorado

“This is an incredibly timely arrival for organizations looking to update their talent management practices and update their culture—which is to say, all managers in organizations need to read this book.” 
—Steven Milovich, Senior Vice President, Global Human Resources, Talent and Workforce Diversity, Disney/ABC Television Group

“An incisive exploration into talent management practices that clearly identifies outdated systems in place and how to move beyond. It’s exceptionally difficult to keep up with today’s rapidly changing workplace, yet Lawler’s data-driven methodology and action-based solutions lead readers through the fray.”
—Gary Latham, Secretary of State Professor of Organizational Effectiveness, Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto
