Talent Supply Chain Management Systems

This diagram illustrates a system map for a demand-driven talent supply chain. The need for such a system has been widely recognized, and our work is performed in the context of the on-going national conversation about Talent Supply Chain Management or Talent Pipelines.  As the nation moves toward such a system under the recent WIOA legislation, employers need to be asked to define, validate, and communicate their requirements to talent suppliers (educators, workforce professionals) and individuals. Grant funding should support employers to do this work.
