    Many HR apologists have long shown concern about the status and legitimacy of the occupation in the eyes of executives and other actors, and, arguably, this has not been unconnected to the range of titles it has been given over the years. For some time, commentators debated whether there was an element of management fashion about these title changes, or whether they reflected some real change at the level of practice. Talent management (TM) has recently emerged as a focus of interest in HRM, although differences exist over its definition and rationale.
