We argue that the present scope of global talent management (GTM) is limited by its focus upon individuals and organizations, that leaves country effects and influences, as witnessed in the form of talent mobility, and respective governments' direct involvement in attracting and developing national talent, unaddressed. We present a conceptual framework for macro global talent management (MGTM), which incorporates a macro view and supports interdisciplinary research. The framework draws our attention to the macro context in which GTM occurs as well as illuminates its multiple consequences traversing levels of analysis. It also captures the essence of complexities associated with managing talent globally. We offer directions for future research and discuss implications for managers and policy makers. We conclude with some contributions, limitations and conclusions.
