Talent management has been a concept used in business for many years, but is a relatively new concept within education. This session will walk you through some basics of talent management and share one district’s journey. Topics to be covered include: introducing the concept, establishing the need to address the internal leadership pipeline, and piloting two targeted development programs. The session will review the components of the district’s Executive Development Program and Leadership Advancement Program (LAP). The presenters will discuss the considerations, successes, and realities of implementing a culture shifting initiative in a large complex system.
