Governance

The TMI system and fabric of governance guides the very spirit and passion with which TMI standards and credentials are managed, controlled, and practiced around the world. The TMI Governing Council - aided by other governance support organs – is accountable for the assured maintenance of integrity, quality, rigor, independence, and precision of the TMI credentialing systems, standard-frameworks, and assessments and audits underlying TMI Credentials.

Charged with the onerous responsibilities of leading the research, development, evolution, commissioning, and management of the entire TMI credentialing edifice, knowledge repositories, standards, professional body of knowledge, and TMI Credentials, the TMI Governing Council is the apex governance organ at TMI. Globally renowned and accomplished experts from the academia, business, and industry man and lead various departments and groups within the Council, responsible for managing the affairs related to TMI professional certifications and TMI enterprise certifications, in addition to those on ethics, research, and community contribution.

Principles

The Principles of TMI Governance

The TMI Governance Structure has been designed on the paradigm of “Contribution and accountability to Markets, Organizations, Industry, Business Associates, Professionals, and other Social and community stakeholders through Rigorous and Ethical Practices of Credentialing in Talent Management deploying state-of-the-art knowledge, systems, processes, and procedures.”

The tenets of accountability, industry–connect, Talent Management excellence, and ethical credentialing practice have been enshrined in the architecture of TMI Governance with the Governing Council as the top TMI body for credentialing regulation, and other boards and committees responsible for ensuring that all TMI products and services are always designed and delivered on the basis of the needs and voices of the players, markets, and stakeholders of the human capital and Talent Management functions. The salient codes of the TMI Governance Principles include:

  1. The architecture of the TMI governance fabric shall always be subservient and in accordance to the needs of honest and unbiased assessment, audit, validation, and credentialing of proficiencies and potential of HR professionals, Talent Management practitioners, and enterprise HR systems.
  2. All boards, committees, and councils engaged in governing TMI shall remain loyal and committed to the upholding of the TMI principle of accountability to the profession and function of Talent Management.
  3. All officials, experts, and professionals associated with any of the bodies or teams involved in TMI governance shall take all steps required to avoid extraneous pressures, biases, and vested interests from breaching the highest of standards of governance and the culture of ethics that have long been practiced within TMI.

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.
