1.1 Background of the study
The ultimate goal of every business organization is to increase the sale of goods and service that it deals in and to increase profit in order to achieve its laid down goals and objectives.
These can be achieved if organizations employ the right skilled labour on the right job at the right time by managing their talent (Cappelli, 2009) As noted in (Douglas & Jay 2007) most organization don’t have the required talent to develop lucrative business opportunity and so they loss out.
Organization must ensure that employees of choice are endowed with the skills required for the job; this will help organization perform effectively and efficiently. Talent management is the capability to create and continuously optimize the talent resources needed to execute a business strategy (Talent Management Research, 2009).
Talent Management when implemented effectively result in great changes in the performance and productivity of organization
(Capelli, 2008), Talent management is simply a matter of anticipating the need for human capital and then setting out plan to meet it. (Capelli, 2008); Talent Management concerns the additional management processes that are made available to employees in the organization who are considered to be ‘‘talented’’. This means systematically attracting, identifying, developing, engaging, retaining, and deploying those individuals with high potentials who are of a particular value to the organization (Blass, 2007)
Talent Management is the main duty of the Human Resource Manager but over the years senior and line managers now engage in managing talent.
As noted by (Gunter, 2011) successful companies know that talent management needs broad ownership.
Talent Management process include recruiting, succession planning, leadership development and retention of key employees. The importance of talent management has been increasing rapidly over the few past years.
The roles of talent management on organizational performance are:
- Organization achieve its goals
- Organization will meet business demands;
- Organization have reliable work force
- Organizational performance increases.
Talent Management can be effective globally using six principles as noted in (Gunter, 2011). These six principles make talent management effective both locally and globally. They include:
(1)Alignment with strategy (2) internal consistency (3) cultural embeddedness (4) Management involvement (5) balance global and local needs (6) employer branding through differentiation.
Conclusively, Talent Management has been seen as a tool in which organization use in developing talent. If an organization effectively implements talent management process, it will not only develop talents but it will also increase the performance of the organization, invariably leading to achievement of the stated objective.

Large companies still find it difficult to achieve manpower planning and succession management. Although management recognizes that talent is crucial to the success of the organization, adequate measures to protect and nurture it are yet to be formulated. Other human resources initiatives such as talent audit schemes, competency analysis, team building activities has to be implemented or achieved in so doing the organizational performance increases. This development has to a large extent retarded the growth and development of the organization concerned.
