Abstract

Talent management as an innovative approach to employee management is attracting more and more attention both in foreign and Russian companies. Until now, scientists and practitioners have studied this phenomenon as a whole, trying to find benchmarks and pursuing the goal of defining universal concepts. Several practitioners and academics have taken a distinctive path, outlining the fundamental differences between talent management, existing workforce, and HR systems. However, given the significant uncertainty of the external environment, variations of economic conditions and access to talents for different industries, it is worth talking about talent management in a specific context, given the conditions that affect the formation of a talent management system. Thus, an important component of the talent management course is the search and systematisation of external and internal factors that affect the company's activities at different levels. In addition to the areas mentioned above, one of the most important talent management issues is HR analytics and approaches to building models for defining talents in an organisation, managing talent performance, using analytics in attracting, developing, deploying and maintaining talent management practices. Students will learn how to identify talent in business, develop a talent management system, how to define and evaluate talent management strategy and its connection of a company's strategy, and find an appropriate way to develop a core set of talent management practices based on a number of factors which influence talent management. The course is based on the case studies and examples on talent management implementation based on actual data sets and results of recent research. Some of the tasks, which will be given to students, are in progress in the companies and have not finished yet. Thus the companies' representatives will evaulate the results of students' work on case studies and their applicability to the context of their companies.
