Transforming Technical Talent based on GE Matrix

  • Tom Snyder, founder of geMatrix, applies the GE Matrix tool (a tool representing a portfolio matrix consisting of nine cells to help screen GE's large portfolio of strategic business units) to guide teams and professionals in implementing a continuous technical talent program.
  • Once individual and team talents are identified, they are mapped to software services that directly impact business strengths and market attractiveness.
  • Each technical talent can then be continually protected, selectively invested, and retooled through some combination of technical training and knowledge transfer.
  • The path to increasing competitive advantages is to increase business strengths and market awareness through increased individual and team technical talent.
