The TMI way is the thought and act of integrating Talent Management into the fabric of organizational HR practices. TMI Credentials and frameworks work to engrain Talent Management as a core within all departments. The TMI way views Talent Management practice as having a consciousness that values the firm and society. The six dynamic elements from Talent Management that are emphasized in an organization's leadership are: the ecosystem, ethos, engine, system, process and practices of Talent Management.
The TMI standard-framework seeks to go beyond standard HR tasks and rather make Talent Management a fundamental component to organizations.
TMI has two sets of standard-frameworks defining the two TMI types of credentials. The first set, the TMI Universal Knowledge Framework (TMI-UKF™) is connected to the TMI professional credentials TMP™, STMP™, GTML™ and the TMI-Fellow programs in Talent Management. The Talent Management Body of Knowledge (TMBoK™) and the TMI-UKF™ outline Talent Management knowledge and benchmarks to be utilized for assessing the proficiency of professionals for handling Talent Management in advanced organizations. TMI-UKF™ provides cross-functional knowledge centered on the ability to understand business strategy.
TMI-Enterprise Talent Management Systems (ETMS) is the cornerstone for the TMI-ETMS10™ and TMI-ETMS14™ enterprise-level credentials in Talent Management and is designed for enterprise HR systems that want to adopt the latest Talent Management practices. A core component of the ETMS paradigm involves developing Talent Management systems as an essential pan-organization practice. The two TMI standard frameworks serve to utilize Talent Management beyond the HR department and make it a fundamental leadership responsibility that demands priority from top management.
The TMI Universal Knowledge Framework (TMI-UKF™) is the cornerstone of the world's first and most authoritative body of knowledge on the Talent Management industry. The TMI-UKF™ provides HR professionals a set of comprehensive guidelines and benchmarks that can be embedded as functional components of HR throughout the organization.
The TMI-UKF™ is fundamental to all four TMI Credentials- TMP™, STMP™, GTML™ and the TMI-Fellow programs in Talent Management. These certifications reaffirm to growing Talent Management professionals the importance of acquiring knowledge essential for successful job performance. For employers, these credentials prove to be reliable indicators of professional proficiency of existing HR leaders and applicants. In the TMI-UKF™, Talent Management expertise and knowledge has been grouped into foundational and functional knowledge areas. The two sections cover 18 topics of essential knowledge for Talent Management professionals. The elements of the TMI TMBok™ have established the framework along which the TMI Certification exam system is cast. The TMI Handbook on Talent Management includes detailed treatment of the TMI-UKF™ and the TMI Talent Management Body of Knowledge.
The Foundational Lobe Knowledge Areas
The Functional Lobe Knowledge Areas
The Universal Knowledge Framework on Talent Management, the TMI-UKF™, was developed after several stages of research by Talent Management experts and is the backbone of the TMI Talent Management Body of Knowledge (TMBoK™) for human resource professionals and Talent Management practitioners. The TMI-TMBoK™ rigorously structures all knowledge dimensions that are widely recognized as critical for Talent Management practitioners today. This includes essential knowledge in Talent Management concepts, principles and trends.
The 18 TMI-UKF™ Knowledge Lobe areas have been fleshed out into 23 Mandatory Knowledge Topics divided across three segments or parts as exhibited below:
The exams of the TMP™, STMP™, and the GTML™ Credentials cover these topics in addition to six other topics based on industry cases. To know more about TMI certification exams, please visit the exam section on this website, or click here .
The TMI-ETMS™ (TMI-ETMS™ Reseas 11.4.3 in current circulation) fulfills the need for a unified, international standard for Talent Management practice in organizations. The TMI-ETMS™ addresses 14 critical strategic dimensions and it sets standards across nearly 100 parameters that impact metrics of Talent Management effectiveness.
Its rigor and coverage makes TMI-ETMS™ the world's first and only organized set of standards that defines systems and practices for optimally managing talents. According to a TMI-Edvantic report on Talent Management practices, the global industry lost more than $5.0 billion USD in the last five years due to causes linked to talent issues ranging from wrong hires to clogged talent pipelines. The report reinforced the view that the intensity of businesses has forced organizations to move from workforce to talent consciousness. In most ways, the TMI-ETMS™ Release 11.4.3 is a forceful TMI argument for treating Talent Management as a hyper-function and distributing its responsibility across departments.
The TMI Talent Management standards for enterprises are derived from the TMI Way. Organizations reporting complete compliance to these standards attain one of the two variants of the prestigious TMI-ETMS™ certifications.
As the bedrock of these certifications, the TMI-ETMS™ standards-framework outlines the conceptual and procedural practice requirements for organizations to achieve Talent Management excellence. Taking on the TMI-ETMS™ standards is the first big step an organization takes toward creating a proud new legacy of pursuing Talent Management excellence within their systems.
TMI-ETMS™ standards-framework is fleshed on a 14-junction backbone, covering all Talent Management elements and areas critical to sustained excellence in Talent Management practice of an organization's HR fabric.
The TMI-ETMS™ standards framework aims at enabling organizations to implement Talent Management strategies across the entire organization.
The 14 junctions of the TMI System for Assurance of Talent Management Excellence in Enterprises (TMI–ETMS™)
TMI-ETMS™ thrives on the landmark PRIDE philosophy to help make following a set of world-class standards an organic process for the organization. Compliance with the TMI-ETMS™ standards are established and evaluated along the PRIDEScan™ standards adherence assurance system along which, client organizations working toward TMI-ETMS™ are audited.
The PRIDEScan™ system distinguishes the TMI-ETMS™ from all other standards by focusing on the depth and nature of an organization's compliance with the TMI-ETMS™. The five PRIDE parameters determine how the TME drivers are embedded and adopted in an organization. The five parameters are, Practice, Relevance, Impacts, Diffusivity and Evolution. The worldwide network of Edvantic, the world's largest provider of business, marketing and management expertise and services to certification bodies, has a series of programs to accelerate the growth of the TMI network.
