About this book

This book highlights the importance of talent management practices in recruiting, developing and retaining talented professionals in the digital and IT&C industry. It unpacks the distinctive characteristics of ‘digital talent’ represented by a wide spectrum of professionals and managers with digital abilities, competencies and skills who add considerable value to organizations and industries worldwide.

It shows that despite digital talent’s increased variety and significant contribution to digital transformation processes, much of the existing human resource and talent management research and practice fail to account for their distinctiveness.

This book calls for the need for a new kind of talent management, referred to as ‘digital talent management’ (DTM) that is applicable to digital talent and decidedly integrates digital talent’s distinctive characteristics into talent management strategies and practices in a human-centered manner.

Drawing upon existing, yet disconnected, streams of literature and empirical evidence derived from the information technology and communication (IT&C) industry, this book defines digital talent and delineates strategies to attract, develop and retain them for an uncertain and renewed future.
