Being part of the talent management research community is central to the whole TMI ethos. Thus, we conduct academic research projects which we present regularly at academic management and talent management conferences.
However, we also regularly conduct applied research projects, tailored to the needs and research areas of our clients. If you are interested in investigating and analysing a specific research question or wish to conduct a case study analysis, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.
Examples of former research projects are:
- TM in family businesses in Europe

- TM and female career advancement in the media industry in Germany
- TM and diversity management in India
- TM in Russia, the Middle East
