Abstract [en]

The notion of Talent Wars is the invention of worldwide consultants McKinsey & Company and their researchers in describing the scarcity of talent deemed necessary to further global and macro-economic growth during the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Everyone wants to find and employ talent but the general understanding of what talent is, is surprisingly vague somewhat mirroring the definition crisis in Gifted Education. Because of the growing need for talent management to sustain envisioned economic development it has become essential to merge the experience of several fields of application and research to eliminate management practices based mainly on ideology and wishful thinking to make an organizational culture and climate optimal for recruited talent. Gifted education has a fair understanding of who the gifted and talented are and what they need, even though theories and identification models vary considerably. Talent Management, on the other hand, is a relatively new phenomenon but no current model includes the notion of giftedness. Outside education systems the notion of talent is mainly used as a term for human capital relating mainly to the executive leaders of tomorrow. Yet current talent management practice still divides talent into high achievers, low achievers, and several stages in between, but without knowing much of the social and psychological dynamic following different levels of ability and competence well known to most academic scholars in education and psychology. Gifted education has much to contribute to talent management. This keynote will chart this new territory and pinpoint areas of contention, agreement, pitfalls, misconceptions and best practises as culled from Gifted Education, management, as well as from the documented experience of the Google Corporation; one of the World’s most successful businesses and most popular employers.
