Notwithstanding the legitimate importance of talent management, it is noteworthy how ambiguous the term is and how difficult it is to define. Within talent management, it is often explained with the gospel of Matthew: someone who 'has more" has a talent, and therefore should be "given more". This is exactly what managers do when they identify and recruit a talent. Demystifying Talent Management questions this idea that anyone who has "more" has a talent, and demonstrates how the term "talent" has become an empty signifier, which no longer refers to anyone or anything in the actual world. The book explores whether talent exists at all, and what the consequences to talent managment would be if this were the case." -- Back cover."@en ;
