Chapter 12. Make the Right Talent Choices

ORGANIZATION REDESIGN IS A WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY TO bring more or different talent into the business. Building substantially new capabilities often entails changes in talent. One of the biggest regrets we hear voiced by leaders after completing an organization design change is that they didn't act courageously or swiftly enough on the difficult talent decisions.
