Enterprise has talent. Unleashing it is the problem.

John Hagel, John Seely Brown and Lang Davison on why you need to reconfigure the company around your people.


Talent is Everything



But how, exactly, does talent get better faster? Workers develop not through formal training programs but by trying new things, by experimenting with what they do in their jobs and how they do it , and by tackling real problems with other talented people with different backgrounds and skills—people who are just as likely to work for other companies, in other locales, as they are to be working in the same company. Talented employees develop best by participating in talent networks—the largely invisible matrix structures, made up of knowledge flows, that run within firms and, with increasing frequency, between and across them.
