“According to a yearlong study conducted by McKinsey & Co., the most important corporate resource over the next 20 years will be talent. It’s also the resource in shortest supply. Are you ready to fight for your fair share?”

“In the boardroom bunkers and in the cubicle-filled trenches, the early skirmishes of the next war are being fought. For the moment, most of the action is guerrilla warfare – brief raids in which the companies under attack are often unaware that they’ve been hit. Ultimately, though, the war will be global, and for businesses, the stakes will be success and perhaps even survival.”
– While ‘the war for talent’ discussed here focuses on bigger companies and employees the same follows for small businesses. It’s not just your product or service your customers buy that make you successful, it’s the people that they buy from. If there is a talent war in big business you will feel it in your small business. Maybe you can even make a business out of it?? -ed.
