"What's the business case for talent development?"Lombard and Eichinger* asked the question "What's the business case for talent development?" and concluded that the research uniformly shows that top performers have 48% more output than average performers, and that at the top of the leadership ladder those with highly developed competencies are worth millions in profits to their business.
