With the emerging trends in human resource practices, talent management has become an area of concern globally. Talent management activities are occupying a very significant amount of organization resources. Most organizations have formed a link between talent management and the overall business strategies. Several studies have been carried out with the aim of finding out the impact talent management has on organization performance, as it has become very popular. This paper critically looks at studies conducted on the subject, identifying empirical and contextual gaps that exist in the literature subject, and proposing a conceptual framework on the subject. From the studies, talent management is at the centre of the survival of the profit organizations in the contemporary world and the stiff competitive business world. The study concludes that even though there is a high correlation between the management of talent, and both financial and non-financial performance of organizations, it would be of worth to include other variables which may include the organization strategies, its structures and policies, the leadership styles and beliefs and others that might be of help to explain the relationships extensively.
