The author emphasizes the benefits that can be gained by companies from empowering their managers to implement their organization's talent agenda. He argues that failure of managers to deliver the basic development and performance management people require has a substantial impact on the identification, development and retention of talent, the performance of teams. He asserts that managers should be aware that people management and development is critical to their leadership role.
