Framework of TMI Governance
The TMI Governance System can be perceived to be made up of three core elements.
The first is the sacrosanct TMI Charter 2005– IX, which defines
the TMI constitution, policies, and principles of governance, which all internal
stakeholders of TMI are under oath to follow. The second is the TMI Governance
Policy framework – the body of Policies and Guidelines for TMI Organs
and officials to follow for consistency in governance decision-making. The third
piece in the TMI Governance System is the TMI Governance Organs
– essentially, the boards, committees, and groups which manage TMI Governance operations,
and also advise the Governing Council on a wide variety of quality, policy,
product, and knowledge areas.
The TMI Governing Council is the apex governance body, formed under the
TMI Charter, and mandated to regulate the statutes on credentialing
for TMI worldwide in accordance to the TMI Governance Policy framework enshrined
in the TMI Charter. The Governing Council is advised and guided by three independent
executive arms – the prime TMI executive organs – that implement and control the
initiatives and programs on the ground through a network of global and zonal committees;
as well as several external associates. These executive organs - the Ethics Control
Board, the Professional Certifications Board, and the
Enterprise Certifications Board – are also the de-facto TMI think-tanks
on matters linked to standards research; credentialing systems development; new
credentials development; audit- and assessment-design; and development of the science
and art of Talent Management.
These boards have several committees under them, with a wide variety of regulatory
and management mandates, and currently, all these offices are in various stages
of their formation or re-appointments. The TMI Charter provisions for 50+ members
in the TMI Governance organization when fully constituted. The worldwide network
of CredForce, the world’s largest provider of business governance expertise and
service to certification bodies, has been mandated for managing the entire process
of identifying and appointing/ re-appointing office-holders for various positions
in the TMI boards, committees, and councils.
