In addition, twelve new practical cases have been included in the new practice book 2022. Here you can read how and why various organizations use the TMA Method, instruments and systems and what this benefits them.

This practical book again contains, in alphabetical order, the 53 TMA competencies and 23 result areas with which you can compile virtually any competency profile for the roles and functions of your organization.

Each competency is fully detailed with behavioral examples, development activities and coaching advice.
The behavioral examples are divided into four levels: general, operational, tactical and strategic level.

This way you can refine competencies at a specific behavioral level for your organization. Each result area consists of a definition and tasks that people can perform in concrete terms. Each task of a result area also indicates which competencies support the task in question in order to be able to perform it properly. The result areas and competencies give you a grip on specific successful behaviour and clear results that are expected within your organization.

It once again includes the definitions of the 22 TMA motivations and the extensive descriptions of the 44 associated talents.
In addition, this practical guide contains practical manuals to use in your daily HR practice when it comes to talent-oriented selection, development and assessment of people for your organization.
