Unlike other assessment tools, TMA maps out an individual's talents and connects those to the context of the individual's current occupation (for example a job position) through a competency profile.
By aligning the organization's expectation through a competency profile with the individual's talents, TMA lays the foundation for continuous talent development.

The TMA Method connects organisations to individual employees, and individual employees to organisations. TMA recognises there to be 2 domains: that of the Organisation; including values, strategy, vision, goals, objective etc, otherwise known as Competency Management, and the domain of the Individual; including talents, drives, cognitive capabilities, values & norms, skills, experience and competencies, known as Talent Management.
Competencies are talents, drives, skills & abilities expressed as observable behaviour and contributes to individual and organisational performance. Competency Management therefore regards the organisational domain, enabling employers to create clear and concise expectations regarding specific roles that can be used in recruitment, selection, performance, development, appraisals, compensation and benefits.
Individuals, through their own lives and experience acquire natural talents, drives and strengths. These result in their own preferred behaviour, which is possible to observe and manage. Talent Management therefore concerns the Individual domain.
Talents are the Natural strengths that a person uses to get what he unconsciously wants. TMA identifies talents on 6 dimensions, including:
• Emotional Balance
• Social Talents
• Influencing Talents
• Organisational Talents
Alignment comes when preferred behaviour meets expected behaviour. The alignment of an organisation therefore does not just consider matching the correct person to the correct role in terms of their talents/ skills/ abilities, but also makes sure there are shared values present for longevity and the development of a new collaborative framework with a positive work culture.
TMA understands that If an individual does not hold the same values as the organisation, a good match cannot be made in the long run. Although an individual may have a specific talent, without the necessary drive, there is little chance for development.
A competency (behaviour) is made up of drives, which are interlinked with talents. Behaviours can be learnt and developed, but there must be motivation to do so.
Furthermore, TMA believes each and every Individual should be allowed and encouraged to work from their strengths. By doing so, employers allow an opportunity for Individuals to blossom, which will have positive direct effects on the growth of organisations as a whole.
Competency Management cannot exist without Talent Management, and Talent Management cannot exist without Competency Management.
The TMA Method uses Positive Psychology to report on 22 drives, 44 talents and 53 TMA Competencies. Unlike other metric result systems, there is no "negative", such that a low score also means that an individual is talented in that area. The example below reports on "Order & Structure" as a drive...
The TMA Method combines talents & competencies to propel performance and ROI.
