The Alliance

Managing Talent in the Networked Age

The employer-employee relationship is broken. Managers face a seemingly impossible dilemma: You can’t afford to offer lifetime employment. But you can’t build a lasting, innovative business when everyone acts like a free agent.

The solution: Stop thinking of employees as family or free agents, and start thinking of them as allies on a tour of duty

Co-authored by Reid Hoffman, founder/chairman of LinkedIn, The Alliance teaches managers how to recruit, manage, and retain the entrepreneurial employees your business needs to succeed in the networked age.

GE is competing in its third century.  The key to sustained performance is developing competitive leaders in every era. The Alliance captures the essence of modern talent development:  trust and mutual value creation helps both employer and employee compete in the marketplace. The authors lay out a framework that helps big companies as well as startups develop their people more effectively, while creating a competitive team.
