Chapter 1: Introduction
Introduction of the study Talent Management
Talent management implies recognizing a person's inherent skills, traits, personality and offering him a matching job. Every person has a unique talent that suits a particular job profile and any other position will cause discomfort. It is the job of the Management, particularly the HR Department, to place candidates with prudence and caution. A wrong fit will result in further hiring, re-training and other wasteful activities. Talent Management is beneficial to both the organization and the employees. The organization benefits from: Increased productivity and capability; a better linkage between individuals' efforts and business goals; commitment of valued employees; reduced turnover; increased bench strength and a better fit between people's jobs and skills. Employees benefit from: Higher motivation and commitment; career development; increased knowledge about and contribution to company goals; sustained motivation and job satisfaction. In these days of highly competitive world, where change is the only constant factor, it is important for an organization to develop the most important resource of all - the Human Resource. In this globalize world, it is only the Human Resource that can provide an organization the competitive edge because under the new trade agreements, technology can be easily transferred from one country to another and there is no dearth for sources of cheap finance. But it is the talented workforce that is very hard to find. Talent signals an ability to learn and develop in the face of new challenges. Talent is about future potential rather than past track record. So talent tends to be measured in terms of having certain attributes, such as a willingness to take risks and learn from mistakes, a reasonable (but not too high) level of ambition and competitiveness, the ability to focus on ‘big picture’ issues, and an awareness of their own strengths, limitations and impact on others. Several talent management processes need to be in place on a strategic level in order ensure its success. Such processes/strategies include talent identification, recruitment & assessment, competency management, performance management, career development, learning management, compensation, succession planning etc. Talent management has a number of benefits to offer such as employee engagement, retention, aligning to strategic goals in order to identify the future leadership of the organization, increased productivity, culture of excellence and much more.
1.2 Objectives of Study:In the current scenario of cutthroat competition, every company has to survive to satisfy its customers by providing them quality products and services. The summer training at Company, was undertaken with a view to study certain fundamental as well as the commercial and operational aspects of the company. The training involved the study of the following: • • • • To understand the entire procedure of Talent management To understand the need of Talent Management To study the accuracy and quality of work of employees by talent management procedure. To suggest possible improvement in Talent Management process.
Rationale of the study
The ‘talent’ in an organization refers to the current employees and their valuable Knowledge, skills and competencies. Talent management (or succession management) is the ongoing process of analyzing, developing and effectively utilizing talent to meet Business needs. It involves a specific process that compares current talent in a department to the strategic business needs of that department. Results lead to the development and implementation of corresponding strategies to address any talent gaps or surpluses. Talent management for the HR Community is a priority of the HR Strategy for the HR Community. Not only does the HR Strategy support the HR Community as its own professional group, but it also recognizes and will support the role human resource professionals have to help their clients become skilled, committed and accountable public servants. The implementation of a talent management process that is transparent and equitable is expected to create an environment for people to develop their skills in preparation for a range of future possibilities thereby preparing the workplace for changing roles. The goal of this process is to map the business needs of the HR Community with the potential and career development needs of our people in order to develop a comprehensive Talent Management Plan.
Limitations of Study:-
1) All the functions are only related with the personnel department. 2) Limitation about the working hour of the worker in the factory.
3) Limitation about the time and absenteeism. 4) Company not allowing to disclose confidential information 5) Time factor was the major limitation of this survey. Because during survey any activity of organization which is directly or indirectly related to the production process should not disturb due to survey.
Object of the project:
This “Talent Management” Project I completed from Company, For the fulfillment of the full time course of MBA of Pune university for the year 2009-2010. In Company I made research on Talent Management process because company want to know that, is it talent management is really beneficial for them or not. I proved them that talent management is really beneficial for company by doing this project. I completed this project because it was a requirement of our MBA full time course. I learned various things in this project, like audit, SAP HR module, personal administration. Etc.
Chapter 2: Research Methodology
Chapter 2: Research Methodology Review of literature
TALENT MANAGEMENT V/S TRADITIONAL HR APPROACH
Traditional HR systems approach people development from the perspective of developing competencies in the organization. This can actually be a risk-prone approach, especially for companies operating in fast evolving industries, since competencies become redundant with time and new competencies need to be developed. Thus, over time, the entire approach to development of people might be rendered obsolete calling for rethinking the entire development initiative. Talent management on the other hand focuses on enhancing the potential of people by developing capacities. Capacities are the basic DNA of an organization and also of individual potential.

Point of Departure Navigation Point of Arrival
In fact, the following appropriately describes the role of talent management: Translating organizational vision into goals and mapping the required level of capacities and competencies to achieve goals aligning individual values and vision with organizational values and vision. Clear understanding of the varied roles within the organization and appreciation of the value-addition from self and others leading to building a culture of trust, sharing and team orientation. Assessment of talent to profile the level of capacities and set of competencies possessed within the organization. Enhancing capacities to learn, think relate and act through development initiatives. Individual growth to meet and accept varied incremental and transformational roles in

4.3 Understanding Talent
The idea of developing talent is not a new concept in any business. In fact every successful company that has 'stood the test of time' has done so, Because of their ability to attract, retain and get the best out of their talent. Today we read of a 'war for talent’. This has emerged, not because companies have forgotten about talent, or allowed it drop off of the radar but, because in some fundamental ways, the talent has changed. We have a new kind of young person entering the business world, with a very different world view, set of values, priorities and goals.

Research Methodology is a way to systematically solve the research problems. It may be understand as a science of studying how research is done scientifically. In it
18 we are studying his research problems along with the logic behind them. It is necessary the researcher to know not only the research method techniques but also the methodology.
Types of Research:It is descriptive type of research. Descriptive Research survey and fact finding inquiries of different kind. The major purpose of descriptive research is descriptive the state of affairs, as it exist at present. The main control over the variable; he can only report what has to discover the even when there he cannot the variable. The methods has to researcher utilized in descriptive research are survey methods of all kind.
Data Source:The source of project depends on accurate data. That’s why data collecting the appropriate data, which differ considerable in context money, cost, time and other resources at the disposal researcher. There are two types of data collection methods available:1) Primary Data Collection Method. 2) Secondary Data Collection Method.
2.3 Primary And Secondary data 1) Primary Data Collection Method.
Primary data are those that are obtain by the user for fulfillment their purpose. I have taken Primary Data through personal visit of HR head, and HR executive, of Company Ltd.

? ? ? ? Employee are not able to take benefits from Talent Management System Employee can not retain successfully for the benefit of organization Employee’s performance can not increased by talent management. Talent Management is not affecting on employee turnover of organization
Chapter 3: Profile of the Organization.
3.1 History of Company
Founder of Company-Werner von Company Born- 13 Dec. 1816 to 6 December 1892
Company was founded by Werner von Company on 12 October, 1847. Based on the telegraph, his invention used a needle to point to the sequence of letters, instead of using Morse code. The company – then called Telegraphen-Bauanstalt von Company & Halske – opened its first workshop on October 12. In 1848, the company built the first long-distance telegraph line in Europe; 500 km from Berlin to Frankfurt am Main. In 1850 the founder's younger brother, Sir William Company (born Carl Wilhelm Company), started to represent the company in London. In the 1850s, the company was involved in building long distance telegraph networks in Russia. In 1855, a company branch headed by another brother, Carl von Company, opened in St Petersburg, Russia. In 1867, Company completed the monumental Indo-European (Calcutta to London) telegraph line. In 1881, a Company AC Alternator driven by a watermill was used to power the world's first electric street lighting in the town of Godalming, United Kingdom. The company continued to grow and diversified into electric trains and light bulbs. As Werner had envisioned, the company he started grew from strength to strength in every field of electrical engineering. From constructing the world's first electric railway to laying the first telegraph line linking Britain and India, Company was responsible for building much of the modern world's infrastructure. Company is today a technology giant in more than 190 countries, employing some 440,000 people worldwide. Our work in the fields of energy, industry,
23 communications, information, transportation, healthcare, components and lighting has become essential parts of everyday life. While Werner was a tireless inventor during his days, Company today remains a relentless innovator. With innovations averaging 18 a day, it seems like the revolution Werner started is still going strong. In 1890, the founder retired and left the company to his brother Carl and sons Arnold and Wilhelm. Company & Halske (S&H) was incorporated in 1897. In 1907 Company had 34,324 employees and was the seventh-largest company in the German empire by number of employees. In 1919, S&H and two other companies jointly formed the Osram lightbulb company. A Japanese subsidiary was established in 1923. During the 1920s and 1930s, S&H started to manufacture radios, television sets, and electron microscopes.

Chapter 4: Introduction of Talent Management.
Chapter 4: Introduction
4.1 Meaning Definition With businesses going global and competition becoming intense, there is mounting pressure on organizations to deliver more and better than before. Organizations therefore need to be able to develop and deploy people who can articulate the passion and vision of the organization and make teams with the energy to perform at much higher levels.
These people build and drive the knowledge assets of a corporation, the value of which has been established to be many times more than the tangibles. The capacity of an organization to hire, develop and retain talent is therefore the most crucial business process and priority on the CEO’s agenda. The 1990’s ended with a call-to-arms to fight “the war for talent”. While the war for talent clearly has cooled in the early stages of the 21st century, dampened by economic doldrums & concerns with global security; the rear battle to attract, motivate, development & retain talent is going to heat up considerably. A looming demographic time-bomb will make Talent Management a priority for organizations. A host of issues like: loss of human capital, talent shortages, ageism, and cultural clash has made acquiring & managing talent difficult. Talent Management describes the process through which employers of all kinds – Firms, Govt., and Non-profit organizations – anticipate their human capital needs & set about meeting them. Thus Talent Management refers to: getting the RIGHT PEOPLE with the RIGHT SKILLS into the RIGHT JOBS.
It is a professional term, also known as “Human Capital Management” that refers to the process of developing & fostering new workers through on boarding, developing & keeping current workers & attracting highly skilled workers to work for your company. Companies that are engaged in Talent Management are strategic & deliberate in how they recruit, manage asses, develop & maintain an organization’s most important resource – its PEOPLE. This term also incorporates how companies drive performance at the individual level. Decisions about Talent Management shape the competencies that organizations have & their ultimate success; & from the perspectives of individuals, these decisions determine the path & pace of careers. We may thus understand that this term is usually associated with competency based HRM practices. Talent Management decisions are often driven by a set of organizational core competencies as well as position – specific competencies. The competency set may include knowledge, skills, experience & personal traits.
4.2 Human capital management
Companies that engage in talent management (Human Capital Management) are strategic and deliberate in how they source, attract, select, train, develop, retain, promote, and move employees through the organization. Research done on the value of such systems implemented within companies consistently uncovers benefits in these critical economic areas: revenue, customer satisfaction, quality, productivity, cost, cycle time, and market capitalization. The mindset of this more personal human resources approach seeks not only to hire the most qualified and valuable employees but also to put a strong emphasis on retention. Since the initial hiring process is so expensive to a company, it is important to place the individual in a position where his skills are being extensively utilized. The term talent management means different things to different organizations. To some it is about the management of high-worth individuals or "the talented" whilst to others it is about how talent is managed generally - i.e. on the assumption that all people have talent which should be identified and liberated. From a talent management standpoint, employee evaluations concern two major areas of measurement: performance and potential. Current employee performance within a specific job has always been a standard evaluation measurement tool of the profitability of an employee. However, talent management also seeks to focus on an employee’s potential, meaning an employee’s future performance, if given the proper development of skills. The major aspects of talent management practiced within an organization must consistently include.
• • • •
performance management leadership development workforce planning/identifying talent gaps recruiting
This term of talent management is usually associated with competency-based human resource management practices. Talent management decisions are often driven by a set of organizational core competencies as well as position-specific competencies. The competency set may include knowledge, skills, experience, and personal traits (demonstrated through defined behaviors). Older competency models might also contain attributes that rarely predict success (e.g. education, tenure, and diversity factors that are illegal to consider in relation to job performance in many countries, and unethical within organizations).

Chapter 5: Talent Management
5.1 Meaning and definition
Talent management implies recognizing a person's inherent skills, traits, personality and offering him a matching job. Every person has a unique talent that suits a particular job profile and any other position will cause discomfort. It is the job of the Management, particularly the HR Department, to place candidates with prudence and caution. A wrong fit will result in further hiring, re-training and other wasteful activities. Talent Management is beneficial to both the organization and the employees. The organization benefits from: Increased productivity and capability; a better linkage between individuals' efforts and business goals; commitment of valued employees; reduced turnover; increased bench strength and a better fit between people's jobs and skills. Employees benefit from: Higher motivation and commitment; career development; increased knowledge about and contribution to company goals; sustained motivation and job satisfaction. In these days of highly competitive world, where change is the only constant factor, it is important for an organization to develop the most important resource of all - the Human Resource. In this globalize world, it is only the Human Resource that can provide an organization the competitive edge because under the new trade agreements, technology can be easily transferred from one country to another and there is no dearth for sources of cheap finance. But it is the talented workforce that is very hard to find. The biggest problem is how to retain the present workforce and stop them from quitting
First, let us look at some of the reasons for the importance of talent management.
Now for any jobseeker the whole world is the potential place to find employment. One can know the opportunities available in any part of the world easily and the number of talent seekers has also increased.
Increased competition in the market place has necessitated the need for consistently good performance on the side of organizations. These have made the companies to put in all efforts to hire and retain the best talent in the respective field of operation.
The knowledge era has necessitated the retaining of those talents which have the ability to assimilate new technologies and knowledge, which are growing at a pace never seen before.
How Talent Management important for an Organization:
1) Cost cutting:
One experienced & skilled employee can replace instead of two or more employees. Organization can save hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Organization can make maximum out put in minimum resources.
Time Saving technique
It is a time saving technique. Because for every job a skilled person can place. It’s helpful to complete job in minimum time
Due to skilled employee Perfection in work is increase. There is low probability of mistakes.
How Talent Management important for an Employee:
It’s ensuring that right people are attracted to the organization, due to providing exposure for there skills.
Developing and implementing practices that reward and support employees.
• Employee development
Ensuring continuous informal and formal learning and development.
• Leadership and "high potential employee" development
Specific development programs for existing and future leaders.
• Performance management
Specific processes that nurture and support performance, including feedback/measurement.
• Workforce planning
Planning for business and general changes, including the older workforce and current/future skills shortages.
Development of a positive, progressive and high performance "way of operating".
5.2 The Challenge
The challenge of talent management has two faces. First is how to find new people and second is how to retain the present workforce. Each of the challenges has to be tackled in the most efficient way possible so that the organization can achieve its objectives.
The First Challenge - Where to find new talent?
All the organizations are finding loads of business opportunities and consequently, their revenues are growing at a rapid pace. The increasing business opportunities has necessitated that these organizations go in for massive recruitment. But, the question is where to find the best talent which is able to fit the job description and also adjust to the organization’s values and norms. If we scan the environment, we find there is a shortage of skilled workforce that can be employed. Some of the possible reasons that have led to the shortage are: Demographic Constraints: This is a common problem faced by many of the developed countries, where a large chunk of its population is nearing the age of retirement or is over 50 years. USA, Germany and Japan are facing the same problem. All these countries will see a decline in their workforce and talent. In the coming years, they will see a great shortage in their skilled professionals.
Existing Educational System:
The graduates and the postgraduates that are being churned out of the universities are found to be ill-equipped to handle the challenges of the workplace.
37 They are mostly equipped with only the theoretical aspects of the issues and lack the application part. The educational system is faulty and does not take industry needs into consideration, resulting in a mismatch between industry requirements and educational preparation.
Recruiting new employees is becoming tougher and tougher in the developing countries, where the HR department has to sort out thousands of applications for a handful of jobs. Finding right person for the right job becomes a very difficult process. It also involves very high cost to conduct the recruitment and selection process for such a large population of applicants.
Attracting the Best Talent:
This is another challenge. As was the case in the past, the best available talent is not just motivated by the name and fame of the organization. Not any more. They have a new set of motivators like - challenging work, conducive work environment and freedom from bureaucratic structure.
The Second Challenge - How to retain the existing employees?
Gone are the days when a person would join an organization in his mid-20s and would work till his retirement in the late-50s. Today the young professionals hop jobs, especially during the first 4-5 years of their work life. Though the Indian service industry is basking in the light of outsourced jobs from the developed countries, they also cannot ignore the fact that the BPO industry is also facing one of the highest attrition rates, in fact never heard before in India, of around 35%. It is a fact that it’s the people that add value to organizations. It is also a fact that humans are a restless species who, unlike the immovable Banyan Tree, cannot stay rooted in one place. People need to move on for one reason or another, and the organization stands to lose.
Let us look at some of the reasons behind the massive attrition rates: -
1. Gap between organizational values and goals and the personal values and goals is one of the major reasons of the attrition rates. If they go parallel, there is no way both would be satisfied and inevitably, the organization would lose out on a talented employee.
2. Working environment is another major factor. Employees in the knowledge era demand creative and a democratic work environment. Failure on the part
38 of the management to provide such an environment will result in a talented employee leaving the organization.
3. The competitive world has made sure that there is high work pressure on the employees of any organization. This has led to psychological problems like stress, and in extreme situations, total burnouts. It also leads to other health related problems.
4. Movement for higher salary is also common among the younger professionals. There is no shortage for organizations who are looking for talented employees and who are ready to shell out a hefty salary for a talented person. Other lures like better job opportunities, higher posts and overseas assignments are also major factors in the attrition rates.
5. Not taking proper care during the recruitment and selection process and not taking proper care to fit the right person to the right job also breeds dissatisfaction among the employees.
6. Bad or opaque policies from management on issues of succession planning and promotion, appointments for senior positions also is a major factor which makes the organization lose out on the talented employees.
7. The professionals have different aspirations at different times of their career. During the initial years, they have good salary and foreign assignments. Next on the list is working on cutting edge technology. More seasoned professionals look for learning opportunities. So employees tend to move to those organizations which provide them with means to fulfill their aspirations. Retaining the present employees is of the foremost importance to the organizations because; the company would have already incurred heavy costs in the form of training and development. Now if the organization has to look for a replacement for the employee who has left, it involves a lot of costs like - hiring costs, training costs and the induction costs. Also it takes some time for the new employee to adjust to the new work environment. During this time the productivity of the employee will be low. The HR department will have to fit the new employee into a proper role in the organization. Apart from causing the company a monetary loss and breaks in their day-to-day operations, attrition contributes to knowledge transfer, which is a great loss and adversely affects business.
5.3 How to Manage the TALENT?
It is now proved beyond doubt that, in the era of technology and knowledge, talent is in the driving seat. One who possesses it dictates. Not he who pays for it. It is the demand of the time that business leaders elevate management of talent to a burning corporate priority. It is not a walk in the park for the talent market. Quality people are no longer available in plenty, easily replaceable and relatively inexpensive. These are some of the measures that should be taken into account to hire and retain talent in the organization, to be efficient and competitive in this highly competitive world: -
Hire the Right People:
Proper care must be taken while hiring the people itself. It would be beneficial for an organization to recruit young people and nurture them, than to substitute by hiring from other organizations. Questions to be asked at this stage are: Whether the person has the requisite skills needed for the job? Whether the person's values and goals match with those of organizations? In short, care must be taken to fit the right person to the right job.
Keep the Promises:
Good talent cannot be motivated by fake platitudes, half-truths and broken promises. Unfulfilled expectations can breed dissatisfaction among the employees and make them either leave the organization or work below their productive level. Promises made during the hiring stage must be kept to build loyalty among the employees, so that they are satisfied and work to their fullest capability.
Good Working Environment:
It has to be accepted by the organizations that highly talented persons make their own rules. They have to be provided with a democratic and a stimulating work environment. The organizational rules must be flexible enough to provide them with freedom to carry out their part of task to their liking, as long as the task is achieved.
40 Opportunities should also be provided to the employees to achieve their personal goals.
Recognition of Merit:
It is highly motivating for any person if his talent is recognized and is suitably rewarded. One way is providing them with salary commensurate with their performance. Promotions and incentives based on performance are another way of doing it. Another way is by providing them with challenging projects. This will achieve two objectives - it makes employee feel that he is considered important (a highly motivating factor) and gets the work done in an efficient manner and brings out the best in the employee.
Providing Learning Opportunities:
Employees must be provided with continuous learning opportunities on and off work field through management development programs and distance learning programs. This will also benefit the organization in the form of highly talented workforce.
Shielding from High Work Pressure:
If an organization has to make the most of the available talent, they should be provided with adequate time to relax, so that they can did-stress themselves. It is very important to provide them with holidays and all-expenses-paid trips, so that they can come back refreshed to work and with increased energy. They must also be encouraged to pursue their interests which are also a good way of reducing work environment stress. Recreation clubs, entertain programs, fun activities with in the work area will also reduce the work life stress of the employees and develop camaraderie among the workers and result in a good working environment. Talent + Vision/Mission/Strategy + Skills & Competencies + TALENT & PERFORMANCE Role & structure + Opportunity Organizations provide individuals the opportunity and space for physically + manifesting their talent into performance for achieving individual and organizational Encouragement & Recognition vision. Talent manifests into performance as follows: + Training & Development + Coaching + Action Plan & Goals + Resources Performance Management System Performance
Thus the domain of talent management focuses not only on development of individual’s intrinsic capacities, but also on culture building and change management to provide the other elements listed above for manifestation of talent into performance.
The New HR Mission and Talent Management Processes
Many challenging workforce issues confront HR, including:
• • • • • • •
Heightened competition for skilled workers. Impending retirement of the baby boomers. Low levels of employee engagement. Acknowledgement of the high cost of turnover. Arduous demands of managing global workforces. Importance of succession planning. Off shoring and outsourcing trends.
This requires new thinking and a new mission to achieve business success. These factors—coupled with the need to align people directly with corporate goals—are forcing HR to evolve from policy creation, cost reduction, process efficiency, and risk management to driving a new talent mindset in the organization.
42 One important distinction is the evolution of the difference between tactical HR and strategic talent management. Transactional HR activities are administrative overhead. Talent management is a continuous process that delivers the optimal workforce for your business. In this new model—instead of being the owners of processes, forms, and compliance—HR becomes the strategic enabler of talent management processes that empower managers and employees while creating business value. With this view, talent management may be defined as the implementation of integrated strategies or systems designed to improve processes for recruiting, developing and retaining people with the required skills and aptitude to meet current and future organizational needs. Anecdotally, talent management is often defined as performance management, incentive compensation, or talent acquisition. Talent management is also often confused with leadership development. Although leadership development is a crucial function of your organization, focusing on it exclusively is a legacy of last century. Our modern service and knowledge economies in the talent age require a broad and holistic view. A high performance business depends on a wide range of talent. Taleo’s graphical representation emphasizes the mandate of talent management to respond to business goals and consequently be the driver of business performance. Talent management is depicted as a circular—not a linear—set of activities.
5.4 Why Talent Management?
Workforce cost is the largest category of spend for most organizations. Automation and analysis of your recruiting and hiring processes provides the immediate workforce visibility and insights you need to significantly improve your bottom line. Performance management provides the ongoing processes and practices to maintain a stellar workforce. Today, many organizations are struggling with silos of HR processes and technologies. The future of talent management is embodied in solutions designed from the ground up to provide business-centric functionality on a unified talent management platform. Since nearly all competitive business factors have become commoditized, talent is what ultimately drives business success and creates value. Leading organizations
43 rely on Taleo solutions and services to assess, acquire, develop, and align talent with business objectives while significantly reducing process costs, improving quality of hire, reducing risk, and achieving higher levels of performance. Though it may seem intuitive, it is worthwhile to articulate the fundamental significance of successful talent management practices:
• • •
The key enabler of any organization is talent. The quality of your people is your last true competitive differentiator. Talent drives performance.
Talent management requires strong executive support, along with systems and processes all directed towards having the right talent doing the right work at the right time. That’s when talent truly drives higher business performance.

Success, growth and survival are the most important responsibilities of the top management of the organization. Succession planning is the activity connected with the succession of incumbents to fill the key positions in the organizations hierarchy as and when a vacancy arises. Succession planning focus on identification of vacancies and locating the probable successor. It provides the succession chart in respect of a particular position. The succession planning ensures the availability of the right kind of the management staff at the right time and in the right position in order to provide for continued organizational vitality and strength.
What is Succession Planning?
Succession planning is the systematic identification and professional development of internal talent. Its goal is to cultivate internal human capital in preparation for assuming leadership roles and other key positions that may become vacant due to retirement, expected or unexpected separations. For Succession planning for management staffing plans are required to be developed properly on an individual basis for all anticipated needs in the immediate year a head and also for key positions.

Challenges of Effective Succession Planning
Successful succession planning, as we've seen, is an ongoing and complex endeavor that is necessarily broad in scope. It therefore presents significant barriers to both implementation and long-term maintenance. Here are some of the more challenging obstacles: • MULTIPLE OWNERS: Traditionally, HR has been considered owner of the succession planning process, but meaningful success really requires a genuine sense of ownership and commitment at many levels of the organization. While HR may be best positioned to oversee the process, it can never fully know or evaluate every process participant the way managers and supervisors can.
NUMBER OF POSITIONS:
All but the smallest of organizations have a substantial number of positions critical to long-term performance, whether these involve leadership skills or technical expertise that would be difficult to quickly replace. Comprehensive succession planning must incorporate all such positions; yet, as the number of positions grows so too does the administrative burden.
Succession plans need to reflect long-term organizational goals and strategies. Companies must give thoughtful consideration not only to the plan's design and implementation, but also to sustaining the process over time. As strategies and goals shift, so too must the plan if the organization is to recruit and develop the workforce its future success will require.
Conglomerate, geographically dispersed, multi-industry, and other complex organizational forms significantly increase the challenge of succession planning.
60 Often, higher-level positions require well-designed cross training to inculcate the unique knowledge and skills success in the organization requires.
As companies evolve in response to marketplace threats and opportunities, the skills, talents, and expertise they will need to thrive evolve, as well.
EFFECTIVENESS & EFFICIENCY:
The larger and more complex an organization, the more challenging it is to maintain an effective and efficient succession planning process. Yet, by definition, the best process is the one that enables the firm to identify the best candidate in least amount of time and at the lowest cost.
Having this process in place is vital to the success of the organization because the individuals identified in the plan will eventually be responsible for ensuring the company is able to tackle future challenges. These 'high potential' candidates must be carefully selected and then provided training and development that gives them skills and competencies needed for tomorrow's business environment. Another reason its important is because these high potentials will one day become the leaders of the Company. This is why their development needs to incorporate a broad range of learning opportunities in your organization. The individuals should also be exposed to as much of the working environment as possible so that they gain a good understanding of what the company requires to remain successful.
7.5 Implementation of Succession Planning:
Succession panning is the planning to place a person on another employee’s place who will retire after one or two year. Succession planning is conduct in every organization. It is a part of Career planning.
At officer’s level Succession planning conduct by following methods.
1) Personal meeting
61 Head of the department take the personnel meeting with the employee who is going to retire because he wants to know that employee’s opinion about to place new right candidate on his place. 2) Employee dialogue: Employee dialogue is a dialogue between employee (who will go to retire) and head of the department, regarding place new candidate at his post, which have ability to fulfill requirements of job. 3) Opinion of subordinate: The head of the department should consider the opinion of other staff or subordinate also.
Employee assessment centre Introduction
This method was first applied in Germany Army in 1930. Later business and industrial houses started using this method. This is not a technique of a performance appraisal by itself. In fact it is a system or organization, where assessment of several individuals is done by various experts by using various techniques. In these approach, individual from various department are bought together to spend two or three days, working on an individual or group assignment similar to the ones they would be handling when promoted. Observers rank the performance of each and every participant in order of merit. Since assessment centre are basically meant for evaluating the potential of candidates to be consider for promotion, training and development, they offer an excellent means for a conducting evaluation process in an objective way. All assess get an equal opportunity to show their talent and capabilities and secure promotion based on merit. Since the evaluators know the position requirements intimately and are trained to perform the evaluation process in an objective manner, the performance rating may find favor with majority of the employees. A considerable amount of research evidence is available to support the contention that people chosen by this method prove better than those chosen by other methods. The centre enable working in a low status department to compete with people from well-known departments and enlarge there promotional chances. Such opportunities, when created on regular basis, will go a long way in improving the morale of promising candidates working in less important positions.
Employee assessment centre:

Chapter 8: Training and Development
Chapter 8: Training and Development
8.1 Meaning and Definition Introduction
After an employee selected, placed and introduced her or she must be provided with training facilities. Training is the act of increasing the knowledge and skills of an employee for doing a particular job. Training is a short-term educational process and utilizing a systematic and organized procedure by which employees learn technical knowledge and skills for a definite purpose. Dale S. Beach Define training, “The organized procedure by which people learn knowledge and/or skill for a definite purpose.” In other words training improves, changes, moulds the employee’s knowledge, skill, behavior, aptitude, and attitude towards the requirements of the job and organization. Training refers to the teaching and learning activity carried on for the primary purpose of helping members on an organization, to acquire and apply the knowledge, skills, abilities and attitudes needed by a particular job and organization. Thus, training bridges the difference between job requirement and employee’s present specifications. No organisat5ion matches the candidate who exactly matches with the job and the organizational requirements. Hence, Training is important to develop the employee and make him suitable to the job. Job and organizational requirement are not static, they are changed from time to time in view of technological advancement and change in the awareness of the total quality and productivity Management(TQPM). The objective of the TQPM can be achieved only through training as training develops human skills and efficiency. Trained employees would be a valuable asset to an organization.

Need for training arises due to following reasons: 4) To match the employee specification with the job recruitment and organizational needs: An employee’s specification may not exactly suit to the requirement of the job and the organization irrespective of his past experience, qualifications, skills knowledge, etc. Thus every management finds deviation between employee’s present specifications and the job requirements and organizational needs. Training is needed to fill this gap by developing and molding the employee’s skill, knowledge attitude behavior etc. to the tune of the job requirements and organizational needs. 5) Technological advances: Every organization in order to survive and to be effective should adopt the latest technology, i.e. mechanization, computerization, automation. Adoption of the latest technology means and methods will not be complete until they are manned by employees possessing skill to operate them. So, organization should train the employee to enrich them in the areas of changing technical skills and knowledge from time to time. 6) Human relations: Trends in approach towards personel management have change from the commodity approach to partnership approach, crossing the human relations approach.

8.3 Methods of Training
Methods of training
Job relations Coaching Job instruction Training through Step by step Committee assignments Internship training
Lectures/Conferences Films Simulation Exercise Cases Programmed instructions Audio visual methods Computer based training E-Learning.
The most widely used methods of training used by organizations are classified into two categories: On-the-Job Training & Off-the-Job Training. ON-THE-JOB TRAINING It’s given at the work place by superior in relatively short period of time. This type of training is cheaper & less time-consuming. This training can be imparted by basically four methods: Coaching It is learning by doing. In this, the superior guides his sub-ordinates & gives him/her job instructions. The superior points out the mistakes & gives suggestions for improvement. Job Rotation: In this method, the trainees move from one job to another, so that he/she should be able to perform all types of jobs. E.g. In banking industry, employees are trained for both back-end & front-end jobs. In case of emergency,
68 (absenteeism or resignation), any employee would be able to perform any type of job. OFF THE JOB TRAINING: It is given outside the actual work place. Lectures/Conferences:This approach is well adapted to convey specific information, rules, procedures or methods. This method is useful, where the information is to be shared among a large number of trainees. The cost per trainee is low in this method. Films: It can provide information & explicitly demonstrate skills that are not easily presented by other techniques. Motion pictures are often used in conjunction with Conference, discussions to clarify & amplify those points that the film emphasized. Simulation Exercise: Any training activity that explicitly places the trainee in an artificial environment that closely mirrors actual working conditions can be considered a Simulation. Simulation activities include case experiences, experiential exercises, vestibule training, management games & role-play. Cases: Present an in depth description of a particular problem an employee might encounter on the job. The employee attempts to find and analyze the problem, evaluate alternative courses of action & decide what course of action would be most satisfactory. Experiential Exercises: Are usually short, structured learning experiences where individuals learn by doing. For instance, rather than talking about inter-personal conflicts & how to deal with them, an experiential exercise could be used to create a conflict situation where employees have to experience a conflict personally & work out its solutions. Vestibule Training: Employees learn their jobs on the equipment they will be using, but the training is conducted away from the actual work floor. While expensive, Vestibule training allows employees to get a full feel for doing task without real world pressures. Additionally, it minimizes the problem of transferring learning to the job.
Role Play: It’s just like acting out a given role as in a stage play. In this method of training, the trainees are required to enact defined roles on the basis of oral or written description of a particular situation.
Management Games: The game is devised on a model of a business situation. The trainees are divided into groups who represent the management of competing companies. They make decisions just like these are made in real-life situations. Decisions made by the groups are evaluated & the likely implications of the decisions are fed back to the groups. The game goes on in several rounds to take the time dimension into account. In-Basket Exercise: Also known as In-tray method of training. The trainee is presented with a pack of papers & files in a tray containing administrative problems & is asked to take decisions on these problems & is asked to take decisions on these within a stipulated time. The decisions taken by the trainees are compared with one another. The trainees are provided feedback on their performance.
8.4 Implementation of training and Development:
Method of training: Method of training is totally depending upon the profile of training. E.g. for technical training if possible then they give on-job training otherwise company use method of off job training. Procedure of training: Assessment of need of training: It is the first step of training procedure. Head of the department and HR department assess the need whether employee need training or not. They find employee who require training. Prepare budget for training: HR manager decide budget for training by considering its cost from the market. And benefits for the company. Search for Internal or External trainer: Internal Trainer: After assessment of need of training, they search for a trainer in theirs company who can train there employee. They search trainer among their employees. External trainer: If they didn’t find internal trainer then they go for External trainer. They try to find external professional trainer from their personnel contact, by giving advertisement in news paper etc. Design program for training: HR manager or head of the department present there need to trainer. They assess type of training and design training program by the help of trainer within the budget. Report to head of the plant: HR manager give the details about training to head of the plant and sanction the approval of training. Implementation: After designing the program for training, they implement in practical in their employee.
