“Building Talent Management right into the core of management curricula should be on the top of our agenda in business schools today. Majority of the institutions do not have the luxury of resources to develop Talent Management knowledge themselves. We need tested models, concepts, standards, and credentials to fast-pace adoption in academic institutions. Validated knowledge frameworks and standards-systems can form the bedrock of the b-school curricula on Talent Management, and add theoretical and conceptual rigor to the learning regime. In business schools too, we need to learn to “import’ knowledge. Wheel re-invention wasn’t ever a smart idea anyways.”

Manfred F. R. Kets de Vries
Distinguished Clinical Professor of Leadership Development and Organizational Change at INSEAD

Resources & Publications

The frontiers of Talent Management are rapidly expanding to amplify the capacities of HR for making more direct impacts to how 21st century businesses can compete and grow successfully amidst flux and uncertainty. In its continuous efforts to fill up a long-felt void on reliable, researched and insightful knowledge in the discipline, TMI is making several high-quality reading and reference resources available in digital and printed formats for a wide variety of Talent Management stakeholders. The list most notably includes the seminal Talent Management – The TMI Handbook for Practitioners, the world’s first; the only standards-based, and the most authoritative text ever written on Talent Management. Another important reference-resource is the TMI Talent Management Body of Knowledge (the TMI-TMBoK). The journal on applied Talent Management as well as a clutch of publications on the future of work and leading-edge HR and Talent Management practices are also included the grown TMI list of knowledge resources on Talent Management. A collection of these exclusive knowledge resources makes up the TMI Resource Box, which is given complimentary to all registrants of TMP, STMP, GTML, and Fellow-of-TMI certification programs.
