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.
