REAL LEARNING@IMD
Dear Reader,

How well is your country building its talent pool? With a new ranking from IMD's renowned World Competitiveness Center, we present the 2014 World Talent Report.

For more than 25 years the Center has been a leading source for evaluating the competitiveness of nations and this new ranking underscores the importance of human capital.

On an individual level, how well are you building your own talent capabilities? This January IMD is pleased to run Organizational Learning in Action (OLA) in Singapore and in Lausanne. Explore this exciting program for learning leaders.

Best regards,

The IMD Webletter Team
