To advance TBM and the IT profession, the TBM Council and its community have three pillars of focus:

Collaboration | Standardization | Education

As part of our standardization initiatives, the TBM Council Standards Committee, chaired by Atticus Tysen, SVP & CIO at Intuit, will be hosting two virtual events every month. These events are designed to inform the TBM Council members and get their input on TBM Standards and Research.

  • The first event of the month will be an informative webinar on a specific topic (detailed below) led by a panel of Standards Committee members.
  • The second event of the month will be an Open Forum as a follow-up to the informative webinar. During the Open Forum, we encourage open dialogue from any and all who attend.

These events are open to all TBM Council Members. If you are not a member, we would still love for you to participate! Please fill out the virtual event registration form and we will take care of submitting the TBM Council Membership Application on your behalf (membership is free).
