Evolving a Universal Body of Knowledge for Talent Management Stakeholders
Ever since its emergence as a potentially game-changing concept for organizations,
Talent Management has missed a robust body of knowledge for human resource professionals
intending to specialize in Talent Management. This body of knowledge would contain
empirically tested and theoretically rigorous principles, practices, frameworks,
and standards on professional skills and knowledge prerequisites for excellence
in the practice of Talent Management, and which could be applied across organization-types,
business verticals, and almost independent of geographic and cultural barriers.
The establishment of the world’s first Talent Management knowledge framework - the
TMI-UKF™ - signaled the coming of what were the most exacting of
the global standards for Talent Management ever written since the advent of the
function. The TMI-UKF™ paved the way for TMI to build its comprehensive
TMI-TMBoK™ - the world’s most exhaustive and authoritative treatise
on what knowledge areas are mission-critical for Talent Management professionals
and practitioners, and how should Talent Management potential, capacities, and proficiencies
be effectively assessed and validated.
Today, the TMI standards and certifications directly contribute to the expansion
of Talent Management excellence across the world. On the one hand, TMI actively
spearheads the emerging global movement to establish frameworks and standards that
help perfect the science of seeding, breeding, nurturing, managing, selecting, and
hiring talents. On the other hand, TMI continually innovates to make its credentials
coin and refine new international benchmarks for assessing and validating potential
and promise of professional excellence in Talent Management.
