Talent management is an increasingly popular research topic, being widely held to enhance firm performance. We test the relationship between talk of talent management in company annual reports and organizational performance outcomes. We find that those firms espousing talent the most do not perform better than those that do the least. This might be explained as evidence of yet another managerial fad, as reflecting the fact that the effects of talent management are too subtle to impact the bottom line, or as evidence that talent management does not work. These various explanations mirror the internal paradoxes within the resource-based view of organizations on the intangibility of the resources that add material value, the relative scarcity of resources versus the importance of amassing organizational coalitions based around resource bundles rather than reliance on individual(s), and between valuing the worth of resources and opportunistic mispricing. In each instance, further documenting the articulation within these paradoxes would advance our understanding of talent management, where it is concentrated, and why those who espouse it the most do not seem to do better.
