Abstract: This study aimed to explore the effects of strategic training on talent management in Iranian National Tax Administration (INTA). The type of research, in terms of the nature of data, is mixed (qualitative-quantitative). Using insights from 20 managers in this organisation and three academic experts, five broad levels of factors of training were identified for implementing talent management. The five dimensions of strategic training with talent management approach included the organisation's macro policies and strategies, future attitude, merit orientation, value-orientation and comprehensiveness. In the quantitative stage, the impact of the strategic training system on talent management implementation was examined. The quantitative data were gathered with questionnaires from 493 managers and experts of INTA, Fars province. The data were analysed using structural equation modelling in PLS software. The results of the quantitative research indicated that the strategic training system had a positive and significant impact on implementing talent management.
