Abstract and Keywords

This chapter serves as an introduction to the Oxford Handbook of Talent Management. The chapter provides a summary introduction to talent management and an overview of the content of the handbook. Specifically, we begin by considering how talent management is defined in the academic literature. Thereafter, we provide an overview of the key trends and debates in the talent management literature over the past decade and a half. We also point to some seminal research that is central to our understanding of talent management that has been omitted from a number of recent reviews of the field owing to broader theoretical framing. We conclude with an overview of the content of the handbook.

Keywords: talent, talent management, stars, talent flows, phenomenon-based research
