Organizations that have the right talent can respond to technological advances, so they can evolve and compete. But the right talent is harder than ever to come by, with acute staffing shortages accelerating the need for better talent management and nurturing approaches.
Technical talent is critical to executing a digital strategy; however, finding, developing and deploying technical talent is becoming increasingly difficult for enterprises due to the technical talent shortage, especially with great digital acceleration the world is currently witnessing.
While you need to build a technical talent acquisition pipeline, you also need to develop immediate solutions to the external talent shortages in order to continue to execute your digital strategy. Some options to consider:
- A creative, speedy, and long-lasting solution would be for you to establish a talent partnership with your service providers.
- Ensuring there is fast flow of work (reducing wait times) so that your existing technical talent capacity is effectively utilized.
- Reskilling and upskilling your existing technical talent with the increasingly critical interpersonal and self-leadership skills (including DevOps style leadership, courage, cognitive skills, curiosity, drive, continuous personal improvement) along with the technical practices to improve the way work gets done.
All of these elements need to be part of your talent management practices, which include elements of talent acquisition, nurturing, mobility, career development and employee engagement to keep retention high.
This ELF roundtable brought the human resource challenges and solutions that help HR and transformation leaders to develop plans and identify creative solutions to alleviate the digital age’s persistent technical talent shortage.

CREATING A SUSTAINABLE TALENT ECOSYSTEM EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
A lot of people talk about people being culturally fit or not. How does an organization decide what will be considered as cultural fit? To get a grip on this the organization must analyze the team for which the person will be hired. Study how the team is being managed, if there has been any changes in the way a team is being run then what it is.
