Talent Pipeline Management

Save time, save money, and get the talent you need. Communities across the world are applying the Talent Pipeline Management (TPM) framework to the most pressing workforce challenges. The result? Scalable, sustainable talent supply chains that create shared value for all.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation developed Talent Pipeline Management® (TPM) to advance authentic employer leadership in building high-performing talent pipelines. Built by business, for business, TPM provides employers and their education and workforce development partners with strategies and tools to co-design talent supply chains that connect learners and workers to jobs and career advancement opportunities. Supported by the TPM framework and delivered through the TPM Academy®, TPM facilitates change management to achieve better outcomes for all partners.
