Abstract: The main purpose of this study is to develop a model of talent excellence. For this purpose, thematic analysis and interviews with university experts, industry experts and managers were first used to identify a model for talent excellence. Then, a researcher-made-questionnaire was used to study the current status of target population based on talent excellence model. Finally, the research model was used to evaluate the status of the Isfahan Province Gas Company (IPGC) as a case study using experts' viewpoints according to the target scores of the model. Eventually, solutions were offered based on the assessment results. The developed model included three main themes (criteria), eight sub-themes (sub-criteria) and 30 concepts. Assessment results indicated that IPGC achieved 455 out of 1,000 points. Based on the privileges of the talent excellence model in the IPGC, the results, enablers and process were satisfactory, respectively.
