TBM Council Awards 2021

Reserve your spot for the kickoff of next year's TBM Council Awards

Celebrating best-of-the-best TBM teams across the globe

The coveted TBM Council Awards have recognized the innovation and contribution of IT and finance leaders for 7 consecutive years. As we embark on the 8th year, we want to hear stories of TBM excellence, where organizations have achieved demonstrable outcomes across nine award categories. The Award categories are built around the pillars of Technology Business Management.

The TBM Council will sponsor and produce a written case study and video testimonial for all award finalists to publicly recognize their work amongst the entire TBM community.

Winners will be announced at the virtual Technology Business Management (TBM) Conference 2020 on Tuesday, November 10.
