Talent Management (Academic Talent Management Certificate)

Securing the future viability of organizations with talent management!

For some, talent management is a highly topical, volatile and emotional issue. Other companies and organizations consider talent policies to be an overrated fad. Third parties, on the other hand, pursue an "ostrich strategy", bury their heads in the sand and trust in the principle of hope: It won't be so bad. Many talk about talent management and yet mean different things. Ultimately, it is about "HR crisis management": It is about how companies adjust to demographic developments, the lack of qualified junior staff, the increasing independence of important know-how carriers or the growing cost pressure.


In order for you to act competently and future-oriented in your position and thus contribute to the company's success, we provide you with the necessary tools in the area of talent management.

Binderlehner Picture

"Talent and succession management is risk management and an important success factor for management to ensure the long-term future viability of companies. The long-announced demographic change, the shortage of skilled workers and the looming retirement wave of the baby boomer generation are presenting many companies with major challenges, some of them existential. Situational ad hoc appointments are less and less possible due to the availability on the labor market. Strategic talent and succession management prepares internal high potentials with important know-how for the challenges in order to contribute to business development as quickly as possible after the position has been filled."
