The chapters in this volume represent truly outstanding examples of talent management programs from diverse economic sectors. They are instructive whether the reader is just starting out to build a program, is trying to enhance an existing program, is a graduate student doing research on talent management programs, or is an old hand with talent management programs. This chapter summarizes what should be regarded as key ?take away points? for what is outstanding about these programs. It also lists some thoughts on next generation talent management—that is, what talent management programs of the future should include. This chapter thus emphasizes some thoughts on evaluating talent management programs for what’s good—and for what are necessary next steps.
