The TMI–ETMS Release 11.4.3 model is composed of two parts:

  • The TMI–ETMS Standards-Framework – this is the 14-Junction framework of standards enunciating the TMI international standards on Talent Management policies and processes in 14 TME-critical areas to be implemented and demonstrably followed by client organizations.
  • The TMI PRIDEScan - the multi-step, five-layered system for compliance-verification audits conducted to assess, validate and approve the degree of standards-adherence reported or demonstrated by client organizations.

For starters, the TMI–ETMS standards-framework defines the 14 junctions along which compliance should be assured by client organizations implementing TMI–ETMS10 or TMI–ETMS14. This covers all Talent Management elements and areas critical to sustained excellence in Talent Management practice of an organization’s Human Resource Management fabric.

The TMI PRIDEScan - The Audit System

The Pride Scan

Compliance to the TMI–ETMS standards-framework of client organizations working towards TMI–ETMS is assessed, verified, and assured by TMI using the PRIDEScan mechanism of audits. A combination of physical, onsite and digital methods is used under PRIDEScan in various audit stages. The PRIDEScan system distinguishes the TMI–ETMS remarkably from all other standards by focusing on the depth and sustainability of an organization’s compliance to the TMI–ETMS standards-framework.

The objective and purpose of a PRIDEScan exercise is to assess and validate how the five TME Drivers - PRACTICE; RELEVANCE; IMPACTS; DIFFUSIVITY; & EVOLUTION are embedded and adopted in an organization, across each of the 14 TME junctions as spelt out in the TMI–ETMS standards-framework. A typical PRIDEScan report of a round of audit would carry assessments on more than 350 TME Nuggets. Compliance quality and approvals for certification award are decided on the basis of the PRIDEScan score achieved by the organization and an assessment of the pictorial Compliance Radar report.
