From the Author:

A whole new way of managing and engaging people
My book describes the three kinds of companies, based on their strategies, and how each company should hire different kinds of people and manage them differently. I have developed a whole new way of looking at people management, including how to align, engage and measure performance. The outcomes will be very satisfied customers, employees who are fulfilling their potentials and highly successful businesses--a win for everyone involved. I will be delighted to hear from you after you read it. Contact me at ELGubman@Hewitt.com

From the Back Cover:

Strategies to Develop, Keep, and Leverage Your Company's Talent! The Talent Solution provides a step-by-step program for achieving outstanding long-term results by getting the most out of an increasingly scarce resource talent. Here's what the experts are saying about this timely, action-oriented new book:


"The Talent solution offers a fresh viewpoint that inextricably links business success to people development. Gubman's lively, action-focused perspective is highly relevant for any manager, and avoids the jargon that so often inflicts books written by sonsultants." Fred Wiersema, Author, The Discipline of Market Leaders and Customer Intimacy.


". . .Realistic and practical ideas for aligning and engaging talent as a solution for satisfying customers and creating value for shareholders. . .(The Talen Solution) provides evidence of 'win-win-win' for employees, customers, and shareholders when talent is actively managed, aligned, and engaged." David R. Whitwam, Chairman and CEO, Whirpool Corporation.


Full of terrific examples. . .An outstanding integration of much of the current thinking on strategy and organization design." Edward Lawler, Professor of Business Adminstration, Director of Center for Effective Organizations, University of Southern California.


"Ed Gubman is certainly right when he says that corporate strategy (and strategizing) has become dangerously disconnected from employees. His advice on bringing strategy and people together had better be heeded, or organizations may find themselves trying to produce first-rate results with second-rate people and processes." William Bridges, Author, JobShift and Managing Transitions.


"Ed focuses on the key challenges tht we all face. If we are to be successful, how do we get the right people, and how do we motivate them to be the catalysts that will make the difference for our respective organizations?" H. Laurance Fuller, CEO, Amoco Corporation.
