Question Description

Discussion 2: Stakeholder Buy-In

For a talent management initiative to be successful, it must have support from its stakeholders. Talent management initiatives can be costly for the organization. The upfront costs of consulting, implementation, or investments in software/hardware might seem expensive. If stakeholders are not convinced that these initiatives will add value to the organization, they probably will not support it. Gaining stakeholder buy-in will increase the chances that they will remain involved and support the initiative throughout its duration.

For this Discussion, suppose you work for an organization in which the stakeholders are not convinced that talent management initiatives are important to the success of the organization.

You will post a cohesive and scholarly response based on your readings and research this week that addresses the following:

  • What might you tell stakeholders regarding the relationship between organizational strategy and talent management initiatives?

Be sure to support your answers with appropriate resources and examples from the literature. APA Format.
