With  TMA selection assessment you gain insight into: 

  • The competencies, cognitive capabilities, personality and talents of your candidate.

The assessment gives you adequate insight in the scope of the suitability of the candidate. In other words, if you want know to what extent the candidate is a match for your position and where there are possible risk factors

The TMA selection assessment is based on TMA method. This is a psychological and psychometric system that assumes a personal blueprint. TMA method is constructed from the following components:

  • The needs, thinking processes and personality traits of the person.
  • The competencies and capacities that the person has.
  • The environment in which the person finds him/herself.
  • The behavior the person demonstrates.

How does the TMA selection assessment work? 

With our many years' experience in assessing competencies, we have developed an assessment technique that is much more customer-oriented. We work as follows:

  • In advance which behavior one wishes to see (or which behavior is potentially present) is determined. It is no longer necessary to always assess several competencies, one competency is also possible. You make therefore a choice in terms of the a number of months we will get in touch with the manager to discuss the progress of the developments.
  • We then like to talk with the manager about the suitability and the risk factor of the candidate and the support, if any, that we consider necessary to allow his/her talents to reach their full potential.
  • At the end of the analysis, the psychologist immediately discusses the findings with the candidate and examines to what extent development is possible and desirable.
  • If the candidate gives permission to do so, the report can be with the client within two days.competency, but also a choice of specific behavior belonging to this competency. You can simply select from operational, tactical and/or strategic behavioral examples. We conduct the selection analysis on these specific behaviors.
  • Then the candidate gets in advance, by means of an invitation, the request to fill in the TMA. he/she can fill in the TMA Talent Assessment in the peace and quiet of his/her own home and on his/her own computer. The TMA Selection Assessment can take place on the following day or as rapidly as one wishes.
  • Because a lot of time is saved by filling the TMA at home, an analysis takes on average 3 to 4 hours depending on the number of competencies that are being mapped.
  • The analysis is conducted as far as possible at the client's offices. This saves a lot of travelling time and irritation caused by traffic jams. We come to you, the client.
