2021 Nov (Tues)-The Physics of Talent

November 9 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm JST


Talent is the great challenge of humanity for the 21st century. Whereas the previous century saw a great liberation of human ability from antiquated bonds of classism, racism, sexism, and other forms of bigotry, the challenge of the current century will be identifying, refining, and channeling human ability into those avenues most conducive to human thriving. The challenge is all around us, from the elementary school classroom to the industrial factory floor to the corporate boardroom. The liberation, maximization, and coordination of human ability will drive the fate of our species.

What role will private enterprise play in addressing this challenge? All companies struggle with the basic reality that there is simply not enough talent to do everything companies wish to do. The problem manifests in millions of unfilled job openings, a byzantine rent-seeking recruiting industry, costly outsourcing and consulting firms, and a woefully underserved market for corporate training and ‘reskilling’.

Can we accurately quantify talent? Can we then reliably train adults in ways that measurably improve their proficiencies making them demonstrably more effective workers? Can we correlate training inputs to positive business outcomes in a repeatable fashion? The company that figures this out will not only have a massive competitive advantage relative to its peers, but will have also tapped a trillion dollar market that will influence the fates of billions.

Join us for the November CEO Insights luncheon with Jonathan Bethune.  Mr.  Bethune believes the best way to understand this challenge is by conceiving of it as a physics problem. With the right perspective, companies can refine their approach to corporate training in ways that ensure optimal ROI
