Joining our Communities
The TBM Council membership is organized into various communities. Each of these communities can be found online, with discussions, a library, events, a membership roster and more. These are a good place to find content, learn of upcoming meetings, and connect with peers. Our communities are organized by different topics, such as vertical industry ( (e.g., banking, healthcare, government, and more), initiative (e.g., agile adoption, public cloud adoption, TBM adoption), and role (e.g., CFO of IT).
Strategy Communities, formerly called Workgroups, are collaborative groups of members that get together to discuss TBM-related challenges, share TBM best practices and strategies for addressing those challenges, and grow their professional networks by connecting with industry peers. They typically meet every two to three months. Each has a chair or co-chairs who steer the focus topics of each community. They are also supported by a Technical Advisor from Apptio and sometimes other Industry Advisors (other professionals with deep subject matter experience).
Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are less formal than Strategy Communities. They are designed to foster conversations and knowledge sharing. As they grow, SIGs may evolve into Strategy Communities.
