“Praise for my Concours Group Colleagues —
Tom Casey, Tim Donahue and Eric Seubert”
Tom Casey and his collaborators have captured nicely the emerging critical concern of Senior Executives. “At the end of the day it is all about the people”. The extensive research conducted by The Concours Group, led to the inevitable conclusion that the Human Equation or as the authors refer to it Talent Readiness is an essential variable for enterprise success and without it failure is inevitable.”
Ron Christman PhD, Former Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
The Concours Group
“Tom Casey and his collaborators, Tim Donahue and Eric Seubert are spot on with their assertion that the human equation drives enterprise success. As a senior executive of a diversified highly specialized global company I can attest that the issue of Talent Readiness is a front of mind concern. The insights the authors have captured are exceptional.”
Laurent Potdevin, Former CEO
“TJX has worked closely with Tom Casey and Discussion Partner Collaborative on Human Capital Transformation efforts. As the senior HR officer of a global organization with tens of thousands employees the concept of Talent Readiness is of paramount importance to all of us chartered to lead the HR efforts or our companies. Candidly a lack of attention to shifting demographics and employee engagement challenges lacks foresight.”
Greg Flores, Chief Human Resources Officer
The TJX Companies
“As the CIO of a global organization I highly endorse the concept of Talent Readiness promoted by Tom Casey and his contributors. The IT space is highly dynamic with shifting demands from stakeholders and an ever evolving need for added capabilities of our professionals. In point of fact, IT is one of the most fluid domains in an enterprise. The role of the CIO, as presented in this book, is to stay ahead of the curve in understanding the labor market and drivers of employee engagement.”

“I have known and admired Tom Casey for over 20 years. I hired him and benefited from his wise counsel at Arthur D. Little and later induced him to join me in research and consulting with The Concours Group.

Tom and his collaborators Tim Donahue and Eric Seubert fellow Concours Group consultants’ book on Talent Readiness is consistent with my research and writings on the topic and an important read for today’s senior executives.”
