Ambidexterity: How Is It Tied To Effective Sourcing & Talent Pipeline Development with Nicole Jackson, PhD
Today's economy has placed increasing demand on companies to be both efficient and innovative. Yet, how can companies manage both successfully and especially in the talent and innovation driven economy? Moreover, how might companies retain investments in historical practices that may still work but require incremental refinement? In strategy, managing for this duality requires attention to two general paradigms to capture value - called "ambidexterity". On the one hand, companies need to look to their past competencies as a basis of stability and compliance. On the other hand, they need to build for innovative and resourceful employees and leaders to execute change and tap newer markets. This course will introduce what ambidexterity is, how to identify it in organizations, and most importantly how to evaluate and assess for ambidexterity in the talent and sourcing pipeline as part of HR and business strategy implementation.
