Abstract: This study illustrates the influence of utilisation of human capital management practices via talent management practices (TMP) that influences managers' job performance in the Malaysia's manufacturing small and medium enterprises (SMEs) that is called small and medium industries (SMIs). This study modifies the Mitchel's job performance motivation model by including new variables that had been ignored by previous studies. 300 questionnaires had been collected, and the study employed partial least squares (PLS) for primary data analysis to test the model. The study limits itself in the scope of making out most of the managers' TMP within the perimeter of manufacturing SMEs in Malaysia. This was due to the fact that the specific needs of manufacturing are different than other sectors such as mining, quarrying, construction, services and primary agriculture. This study contributes significantly to the effect of moderating role of TMP that could influence Malaysia's manufacturing SMEs managers' job performance.
