Bersin & Associates Predictions for 2010

  1. Integrated talent management will reach the boardroom.
  2. The HR function will start a major transformation from “strategic HR” to “business-driven HR”.
  3. High impact leadership development programs will focus on first line management.
  4. Organizations will dramatically shift their focus from “e-learning” to “we-learning.”
  5. Learning & development leaders and practitioners will have to learn new disciplines for success.
  6. Deep Specialization will emerge as a winning talent and business strategy.
  7. “Talent Mobility” strategies will drive your succession and talent programs.
  8. Talent acquisition will shift even more rapidly toward social networking approaches.
  9. Talent management systems will become more integrated and many standalone vendors will be acquired.
  10. Learning management systems will remain important but evolve rapidly into talent and informal systems.  Collaboration and content management will drive the next major evolution in learning technology.
  11. Innovation, Engagement, and Diversity will become “hard disciplines” in HR and business.
  12. Measurement of HR and L&D will once again become an important priority.

In 2010 we are dramatically expanding our research program into many exciting new areas including one we call The High-Impact HR Organization®.

    Thanks for the great insight! I was particularly interested in the eighth section on social networking. First, it was the retail entities that utilized social networking. Now, even conservative, professional, corporate firms (such as the investment management company I work for) are exploring and brainstorming social networking, despite heavy and sometimes burdensome legal restrictions.
