Talent refers to a special ability and aptitude that give people an edge in a particular field. In sport, science, films business or the arts, people who dominate the world stage all have a gift that makes it easier for them to excel.
Of course, along with talent there is preparation, hard work and a certain amount of luck required to achieve success. However, talent is usually a necessary ingredient. Talent is rare, and randomly distributed across the human population, irrespective of pedigree, connections or wealth. Some may call talent an unfair gift. However, it is talent that allows ordinary people to come up in life. Otherwise, rich people would stay rich and poor people poor. Thus, this unfair talent actually makes the world fairer.
On many occasions talent's stature is below that of someone with connections, hereditary entitlement, pedigree or even experience. To avoid this people designing the system should take talent into account and there by it needs to be identified, trained and rewarded.
