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.
Top Benefits of TPM Include:
- Built on industry best practices
- Authentically employer-led
- Generates granular, actionable data on employer demand
- Provides a structured and agile process for collective action and decision making
- Engages the full spectrum of talent sourcing providers
- Creates shared value, competitiveness, and accountability
- Focused on employer ROI
Get Familiar with the Curriculum
The TPM Academy custom curriculum is comprised of six chapters, one for each TPM strategy, together serving as a handbook for implementing TPM. The accompanying web tools bring the curriculum to life and support business organizations leading these efforts.
The TPM Academy
The TPM Academy trains business, workforce, economic development, and education leaders on the TPM framework, a demand-driven strategy to create career pathways for students and workers with talent pipelines aligned to dynamic business needs. Whether facilitated in-person or online and on demand via our TPM Co/Lab™ learning platform, the TPM Academy equips you with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to implement talent supply chain solutions that create shared value for students, workers, education and training partners, and employers using our custom TPM Academy curriculum. TPM Academy graduates can take an assessment to demonstrate they understand the TPM framework and earn a credential to be recognized as a TPM Talent Supply Chain Manager.
The TPM Academy is an online training developed so you can build a better workforce. Our Academy has learning tracks for employers, employer associations, and education/training providers to apply relevant information to your role within the supply chain.
Across four phases of our nation’s talent pipeline, we explore the stories of employers investing in the workforce of today and tomorrow to close the skills gap.
TPM National Learning Network
The TPM National Learning Network (NLN) includes individuals participating in or having completed the TPM Academy, making up a peer network that benefits from sharing best practices. The TPM NLN engages in ongoing activities including quarterly and special topic webinars and biannual summits to provide networking and continued learning opportunities. Members of this network can advance to become mentors and advisors as TPM Fellows and may advance further to become TPM Academy Faculty.Learn More
