"Going through the TDMI process was an invaluable exercise.  It was easy to use and gave us an instant report that helped give us a clear focus to move the business forward.  I was impressed with its accuracy in identifying our challenges which directly helped us map out our people strategy."

"By completing the questionnaire provided on TDMI, it gives the opportunity to review our current business practice and measure up our performances.  We were able to assess and decide precisely what requirements are needed to grow our business.  It also allows us to see areas where we may be weak and how to improve so that we are able to satisfy the needs of both our staff and customers.  For Friends For Needs, TDMI has highlighted areas that we need to focus on such as Recruitment and Staff Training.  Growth Works (Fred) have been very supportive and working alongside us which is what we need at this stage of business growth.  Overall, the experience of having grant funded internship program, the follow up with TDMI and action and planned outputs have been beneficial to our companies."
