SMA Revolutionizes Project Staffing with TOD PRO®

Building Teams for Complex Projects has Never Been Easier

Our client SMA, the world’s leader in providing professional services for critical projects across the procurement and program lifecycle, recently introduced their Talent On Demand (TOD®) cloud-based team building system based on TOD PRO®. TOD® eliminates the burden of recruiting, curating, developing and managing hard-to-find experienced professionals.

TOD® assesses SMA’s clients’ requirements and identifies professionals with the right experience and temperament to ensure the perfect match for their organizations. Clients can instantly complete their project teams from SMA’s pool of highly curated talent.

“Drawing on 35 years of our own experience, we have found that project success hinges on getting the person with the best project experience in place, not just on getting someone with the right skills and education. TOD® is the first system to highlight project experience and digitally enable the whole process, from talent identification to project deployment,” said SMA CEO, Ajay Patel.

Talent On Demand, nicknamed TOD®, matches each SMA client’s needs with the detailed project experience of every SMA associate and instantly identifies who is best qualified to achieve project success. TOD® enables users to:

  • Self-serve from a highly curated pool of talent in high-skilled areas, including:
    • Capture Support and Proposal Development
    • Integrated Program Planning & Controls
    • Technical Management & Engineering
    • Program and Operations Management
    • Data Visualization and Publications
    • Management Consulting
  • Find the talent needed immediately or for future projects
  • Compare qualifications and experience of SMA Associates
  • Choose talent nearby or from around the world
  • Easily compare cost, qualifications and experience
  • Build your own bench of on-demand talent

“We use TOD® to identify the best people for hundreds of our clients’ projects and they are always impressed with how quickly we find the right people for their teams. Whenever they see TOD® in action, they immediately ask for direct access…and now we provide it! TOD® is a powerful tool and we are excited to make it available to our clients,” remarked SMA COO Jacque Keats.

TOD® is part of an integrated system to identify the best talent for complex projects. To learn more about TOD® and how to access curated talent from it, visit or email
