But managers are certainly not helpless in the face of headwind in the global talent market. With the right talent management strategies, corporate culture, IT tools, and (of course) people, many organizations can be inoculated against the skills malaise. But it will require long-term vision and early action.
This issue of Profit looks at some of the forces at work in the market and some of the smart, creative efforts Oracle customers are making to address talent issues in their organizations. I hope the stories prove useful as we face the coming skills gap together.
Some highlights from the February 2013 issue of Profit:
