Much more than an information system  

Most Talent Management systems are IT and Marketing driven. They promote new features and graphics that often don’t provide any depth of information.

All  continue to support practices widely acknowledged to be dysfunctional.  Examples are the  ‘annual performance appraisal’,  detested by almost all staff and managers.  Simplistic 9 box grids to identify those with potential to advance within the organization. Both highly subjective tools that can do more damage than good.

These products have merely digitised the old existing HR forms.  They do not use information technology in new ways to support best practices.

Some are compilations of different systems acquired at different times.  Such amalgamations cannot provide a truly integrated and coherent platform.



The Centranum philosophy and approach comes from our background in both Psychology and Operations.

Insights from 70 years of extensive research in  industrial psychology inform our platform design.  This research identifies practices proven to drive employee engagement, performance, learning and organisational effectiveness

Unfortunately they are still little used in today’s organisations.


A coherent and integrated model of human performance is the basis for our software.

Centranum is a flexible, modular and fully integrated system.   It promotes and supports research based practices in people management.

It offers a simple interface for use in the day to day operating environment.  Its functionality supports the rich information needed to build capability and performance.
