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.
