Building and Operating a Talent Incubation System

Define and discover a human resource model to lead corporate transformation

What is required for a company to continuously produce the core human resources (talent) to lead the era of change? It’s not just about setting up HR systems and talent information system ‘boxes’.

Based on the specific requirements for talent that become apparent in the process of real leadership training and new business creation to create winning models, we monitor comprehensive development measures, including strategic placement and individual coaching, for the discovered talent candidates over the medium to long term. The key is to implement it thoroughly while A system or talent information system has its true meaning only when it supports implementation.

The Talent Incubation Ecosystem Development Service provided by ICMG does not focus on building support systems around talent management, but rather focuses on fostering actual talent candidates who will drive business innovation, and provides support for building and establishing an ecosystem for continuous talent production, with a focus on forming an effective talent pool and establishing management methods.
