Purpose: The main goal of this article is to present effective ways of talent management in an enterprise.

Methodology: Factors identification was carried out based on analysis of subject literature, and also on empirical research, which were carried out within the framework of doctoral dissertation. On the basis used of expert method inspired by Delphic technique, opinions received from the management experts allowed the determinants to be divided with regard to their positive and negative influence and ability to develop an enterprise, namely internal and external.

Findings: Talent management is gaining strategic meaning for enterprises, which aim to secure competitive advantage, not only by dynamic growth. Employers’ skills in terms of extracting, adjusting and appreciating creativity, and potential to develop knowledge, abilities and experience of employees can stand up to requirements which are made in the days of economy based on knowledge.

Implications: Effective talent management is conditioned by numerous factors. Taking into consideration opinions of experts participating in the research, conditions were divided into their positive and negative influence, and the ability of shaping them by a company, namely internal and external. The author is expressing hope that analysis of determinants of effective talent management will be an interesting and useful reading from a perspective of talent management in the both academic and practical dimension, even though it is only a starting point for further discussion.
