    Ray, great summary of a great conference. My own experience confirms your first point: the fast shifting environment we work in, combined with post-recession growth and the reluctance of Millenials to commit to a company long-term, have all created a talent war that is great for recruiters but tough on everyone else. My observation is that organizations are increasingly turning internally to feed their talent, to identify existing and potential talent and use it well. This requires a more sophisticated understanding of people and it may be one of the reasons why HR is indeed re-emerging in the board room.
