Talent Pipeline Management

What is Talent Pipeline Management (TPM)?

TPM is an end-to-end talent management approach that focuses on the employer as the "end customer" of a talent supply chain. This demand-driven, employer-led approach allows employers to more effectively communicate their most critical workforce needs and the skills required for success. This framework is gaining momentum because it is a structured approach to a process that is needed to improve communication between employers, educators, workforce, and training partners.

Why now?

Governor Little and other Idaho leaders have created regional taskforces to better align education and workforce systems and create shared value for employers, workers, education and training providers, and students.

TPM provides a structured process for collective action and decision-making to make this happen. By creating regional focus groups like this one, employers can identify their needs and match them with education and training at a local level.
