Learn more about how TMI impacts the state-of-the-art of Talent Management today.

Let us never forget that TMI exists to help organizations leverage human talent to deal better with future. Conventional strategic HR – the concept, the profession, and the system, everything - began failing even in the most enduring of organizations by the turn of the new millennium – well before they realized. But now, HR needs to get its teeth back. And that’s what we have set out to do at TMI - and will have to keep doing. We have to keep breaking new grounds in how Talent Management should transform in its definitions, models, structure, approach, and practice. But equally importantly, we will have to continuously explore how TMI can enrich the concept, the ideals, the practice and the systems of HR enriched with Talent Management through our knowledge, standards, and credentials.

We should empower organizations, HR leaders, and Talent Management practitioners with the agility required to respond to the challenges of the future, and arm them for their new fights on the markets. Let us always remember that at TMI, we are on a mission to deliver confidence to nations, to their industries, and to their professionals, that adoption of international standards in Talent Management will add most to their capabilities, promise, acumen and the will to win in the present, and shine in the future. We have to be with the world in its journey to being more - every step of its way to it - all along. TMI is in the business of inspiring confidence that with us around, it will be easier to be right about Talent Management, and we shall always grow this confidence.
