The 'War for talent' is over! Nobody won.
The 3rd Axiom of winning in the 4th Industrial Revolution is 'Winning the Race for 4IR talent'. 4IR is causing a significant dislocation in talent, new skills are required, both technical (to manage the cyber-human interface) and managerial (to manage and lead at speed, in uncertainty and ambiguity, to move with purpose anchored-agility). To win the race for 4IR talent requires prowess at (1) Developing executive talent, at pace, in-the-flow of business (2) Deploying talent fluidly; forming, modifying and disbanding teams, adopting an organisational model of a 'team of teams' (3) Protecting the well-being of workers, the physical and mental well-being of workers, whether employees or contractors. Fulfilling the duty-of-care supports employee engagement, productivity and builds the employers reputation.
