Evaluate the Talent Risk Level of your Organization

Talent Management Index® (TMI®

With our Talent Management Index® we measure on the one hand the quality of the strategic alignment of your talent and succession management, and on the other hand we evaluate your personnel policy risk in this area.

The Index is the result of a questionnaire which consists of a mix of qualitative and specific quantitative elements. The fundamental structure lies on four dimensions of Talent Management:

  • Strategy
  • Operations
  • Methodology
  • Learning Agility

Each dimension is characterised by different individual elements (14 in total) which in turn are respectively divided into four maturity levels:

Maturity Level 1   the element is used intuitively, on a trial-and-error basis and variably in different situations 1 - 2 points
Maturity Level 2   rules and regulations for a standardised approach exists, nevertheless the implementation does not (yet) seem to be consistent 3 - 4 points
Maturity Level 3   the element is consistently managed and optimised 5 - 6 points
Maturity Level 4   the element is strategic, future-oriented and aligned 7 - 8 points

Below you will find an excerpt from our questionnaire.
