Ett försvenskat Talent Management: Utifrån icke- praktikers synvinkel
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
The concept of Talent Management (TM) has an American and elitism origin. Since one of the world’s biggest consultant agencies published the concept, the search for talents has spread. Strategic Management trends were developed in Sweden due to the process of globalization, but for a vast majority of the Swedish companies and practitioners the concept is still unknown. The Swedish experts are in this case the ones closer to the theory as non- practitioners. The purpose of this study was to gain a deeper understanding of how the concept is being spread by researchers and consultants. For this purpose, 2 researchers and 6 consultants were interviewed and the data was analyzed using two qualitative approaches: a phenomenological and a discursive analysis. The result indicated that the concept of TM have evolved into a Swedish version, and thereof been adapted to the collectivistic context. The result also showed that the Swedish consultants both create and spread the concept in the Swedish labor market. It was concluded that TM will keep spreading across companies and industries in Sweden for two reasons: 1) the development of the Swedish labor market, and 2) the younger generation is leaving the collectivistic mindset. The result implies primarily on two establishment dilemmas in Sweden: the requirement of a transparency in the establishment within companies, and also an avoidance of the term “talent”.
