About Talent Management Institute/about-talent-management-institute/index

Talent Management Institute exists to help organizations leverage human talent to better prepare for the future. Conventional Human Resources, from the concept and profession to the system as a whole, began failing even in the most resilient of organizations by the turn of the new millennium. At TMI, our goal is to restore the field of HR through Talent Management as the cornerstone of modern businesses and organizations. We will continue breaking new grounds in Talent Management – from definitions and models to structure, approach, and practice. Additionally, we will continuously explore how TMI can enrich the concepts, ideals, and systems of HR with Talent Management through our knowledge and standards.

We will empower organizations, Human Resource leaders, and Talent Management practitioners with the agility required to respond to the challenges of the future, and arm them for these new challenges. At TMI, we are on a mission to deliver confidence to nations, to their industries, and to their professionals. Adoption of international standards in Talent Management will add the most to their capabilities, promise, acumen and their will to succeed in the present and future. TMI is in the business of inspiring confidence – confidence in the power of effective Talent Management – and we shall always seek to grow this confidence.

The Preamble

The TMI Charter on Standards Development for Talent Management Excellence, 2014.

How TMI Reboots HR through Talent Management

The Talent Management Institute's standards, credentials, and knowledge lead the revolution in the way organizations leverage their human capital for enduring success. TMI seeks to go beyond merely fueling 21st-century HR through Talent Management.

It is working to make this emerging discipline the new engine for organizations marching boldly into the future. Our advancements in Talent Management have led to the development of the TMI standards and credentials. These help CHROs and HR Business Partners embrace Talent Management as a functional practice within the fabric of HR, and assist organizations in enhancing their next round of growth through talent and human capital. TMI frameworks for enterprise talent systems help organizations discover the power of Talent Management and adopt it as a business hyper-function to catalyze success. TMI standards and certifications stand on a robust framework of knowledge derived through years of comprehensive studies on the dynamics of talent and human capital in business and management globally. TMI certifications for professionals promote higher levels of excellence in the thought and practice of Talent Management. In a similar vein, TMI Fellow programs blend TMI knowledge and expertise to offer an unprecedented opportunity to learn the art and science of Talent Management to high-achieving HR professionals, CHROs, international leaders, consultants, and academics in human capital management.
