TBM Council Partners will help drive growth, best practices, thought leadership, and adoption of TBM through their participation with and sponsorship of the TBM community. This will include engaging at quarterly board meetings, strategy communities and events, TBM Conference, Board invitationals, and regional events. Council partners align to one of six categories: Solution, Delivery, Research, Education, Standards, and Underwriting Partner.
“The evolution and adoption of TBM has never been more evident as we see the convergence of TBM, FinOps, and Agile,” said Jack Bischof, general manager, TBM Council. “Our TBM Council Partner Program will equip the TBM Council with even more industry thought leaders to provide unique and valuable insights as we work to expand and mature the TBM discipline.”
