This chapter considers definitions of talent management (TM) as exclusive and inclusive and contrasts TM with HRM. Theoretical underpinnings of TM are summarised using ideas from SHRM, institutional theory and celebrity society. Biasing factors in talent identification are considered including interpersonal relationships and gender. Authors take a more critical approach to TM to bring out a 'dark side' in contrast to conventional managerialist depictions
