Abstract

This exercise is part of the suite of teaching materials (IMD-3-1876 to IMD-3-1880) which employs China as an illustration of the managerial implications resulted from the so-called War for Talent, and is intended to generate insights into ''how to best play the talent game'' in China, or elsewhere. We aim to generate an interactive and rich class discussion of the issues raised among seasoned business practitioners, by adopting a variety of interesting teaching formats: an opening note (IMD-3-1876), four cases (IMD-3-1877 to IMD-3-1880), an ''appraisal exercise'' (IMD-3-1876-E) and a video. In this ''appraisal exercise'', we ask programme participants in class, and an appraisal panel on video - the four business leaders featured in the case collection and three recruiting experts from two highly-regarded executive search firms in China - to appraise four talented young Chinese as potential candidates for employment. The purpose of the exercise is to consider the talent needs of each of the four firms, keeping in mind the different employment situations that they represent, and then to consider each of the four potential candidates for employment and to discuss how each of them might fit the needs of the employers, and what might be appropriate talent acquisition, development and retention strategies for each candidate.
