“Talent Master” Book Monthly Tuning: Measuring Human Capital in Digital Way Nov. 2016

Human Capital is about potential, if unleashed, can bring the quantum leap in the business growth, and societal advancement.

People are always the most invaluable asset in businesses. “Hiring the right person to the right position at the right time,” is the mantra of many forward-thinking organizations. The question is how would you define the right people? How do you define wrong, average, mediocre, good, great or extraordinary person? Or put simply, for what should they be right?

What products (tangible or otherwise) are creative? Where does that creativity arise from? And what acts, behaviors etc. may be examples of the organizational creative process?
