In this time of change, reinvention, reinvigoration, rethinking, adaptation, evolution, innovation, and disruption in the legal industry, a series of pivotal questions have emerged: What is being done to identify and develop legal talent differently in law firms? What sort of support, data, feedback, performance reviews, and rewards do people need to feel motivated, engaged, and committed to a career in law? What does that career look like now? What work will they be doing? Where will they be located? Do competencies and benchmarks make sense in this brave new world? Just how different is different?

In this thorough introductory chapter entitled "The Survival Imperative", author and General Editor Terri Mottershead examines how we arrived at this time of the “new normal,” where we are now, and where the profession is headed. She also outlines the content from the other authors, who provide their expertise in a number of distinct areas within the world of law firm professional development and talent and human resource management.

Providing helpful tips, tools, and suggestions that support talent management professionals in their work as change agents and intrapreneurs, Innovating Talent Management acts as a resource for law firm leaders, legal department leaders, COOs, and CEOs as they consider their growth strategies and business priorities in the next decade. Law schools will also find this a helpful resource as they review, reshape, and relaunch their curricula to prepare graduates for the 21st century legal marketplace.
