TBM Council Awards

Celebrating 10 Years of TBM Success Across the Globe

Recognition & Validation for Your Team

2022 marks the 10th Anniversary of TBM Council Awards! Over the last nine years, we have received hundreds of nominations, selected over 250 finalists, and awarded 75 winners.

The TBM Council Awards provide a front-row seat to the rapidly changing technology landscape. Among past nominees, we’ve seen mass migration to the cloud, adoption of agile-at-scale approaches, and increased investment in digital platforms. These awards show us the formidable impact of TBM on businesses, their people, and their customers.

Nominate a TBM success story by June 30 to be considered for a 2022 TBM Council Award.

2022 Awards Categories

Our judges evaluate nominees for tangible results such as cost savings, shifting money from run-the-business to change-the business, funding innovation programs, optimizing public cloud spending, and driving return on investment from project and product portfolios.

They also give weight to the increased confidence teams gain in their data as a result of TBM, and they consider how executives use TBM to change conversations with their business partners.
