Trying to succeed in the struggle for global talent without first arming your company with knowledge is like driving across a continent without the aid of a map. You might reach your destination but the road could equally lead to disaster.

Nagpal’s surprising book is now available as a Soundview Executive Book Summary.
Nagpal admits he is deeply invested in researching and understanding the changes to talent around the globe.
