With our new compact program “Talent Management” the importance of strategic Talent and Succession Management for increasing long-term success for organizations is in focus. Only with a future-oriented personnel strategy the economic stability can be guaranteed.
The academically certified compact program “Talent Management” starts in the summer term 2023 (March) at the Vienna University of Technology Academy for Continuing Education. In cooperation with experts from TTransformation Management GmbH, opens an external URL in a new window, participants of the program have the opportunity to get an insight about Talent and Succession Management within didactically innovative formats.

In six modules the participants learn about the most important elements of strategic Talent and Succession Management. They receive guidance on setting up and/or expanding professional succession management in their organizations and acquire all skills relevant for a successful implementation.

Participants get the opportunity to contribute real life topics of relevancy from their own businesses. During the entire program period a continuous exchange via real-time support, podcasts, peer group consulting, working-out-loud formats (HOT sessions), specialist coaching, sparring, or via chat rooms is offered.
"By successfully completing the course, you are well prepared for the burning strategic challenges of modern, future-oriented HR work.

Combined with the findings of the international study "Talent and Succession Management on the Test Bench" with over 400 companies, the speakers offer the participants state-of-the-art know-how on what is important in talent and succession management in modern organizations.

“Talent and succession management is risk management and an important success factor for management to ensure the long-term sustainability of the company. The long-preached demographic change, the shortage of skilled workers and the beginning wave of retirements of the baby boomer generation present many companies with major, sometimes existential challenges. Situational ad hoc replacements are less and less possible due to the availability on the job market. Strategic talent and succession management prepares internal high potentials with important know-how for challenges in order to contribute to business development as quickly as possible after being filled". - Rudolf F. Binderlehner, MBA, lecturer & partner of Transformation Management GmbH.
