This study attempted to clarify the growing concept of strategic talent management and highlights its effect on organizational performance. This study employed archival method and as such extant literature was reviewed and collated for development of propositions. These propositions were developed based on the findings from the literature. Regardless of the increasing reputation talent management has and more than ten years of discussion as well as publicity, the idea behind talent management is still vague. Huge ambiguity still exists in the meaning and latitude of the concept. The recent expression ‘talent management’ has been initiated in the last decade. The term "Talent Management" was initiated recently to provide a single solution for the issues relating to the attraction and retention of qualified workforce. Talent management is beset with misunderstandings, doubts and lack of clarity, implying that the subject is not grounded in practice and thus reinforcing why it is viewed by many experts as a puzzle. Also, the effect talent management has on the outcome of an organization remains an issue particularly wherever only high ranked staff are considered the talents in an organization. This paper advocates the continuous training of personnel to obtain the required level of capacity of employees. The work-force who is involved in the talent management program is expected to be more innovative and contribute excellently to the success of the organization.
