It is that time of year again, the nominations for the 2017 TBM Council Awards are open! This year marks the fifth year of the TBM Conference and the TBM Council Awards program. Throughout the past five years we have heard from a variety of leaders and change agents who have transformed their organizations with technology business management.
The TBM Council Awards honors all levels of TBM experience. Whether your organization has recently embraced TBM or you are implementing TBM throughout the enterprise, there is a category for you and your team.
Here are a few category considerations to keep in mind when submitting your nomination:
Business Innovation Award – The Selection Committee is looking for an organization that is changing the conversation with line-of-business stakeholders, the C-suite, and even the board of directors. Can you show how your team has shifted budget from maintenance costs to innovation?
IT Optimization Award – Finalists for this category will provide tangible examples of how they are saving money on IT spending and/or are getting more value per dollar invested.
IT Financial Leadership Award (formerly CFO of IT Leadership) – Finalists for this category have changed the role of IT finance at their organization. They are no longer looked at as merely a controller/accounting function. They are seen as drivers of decision-making power to IT, finance and business stakeholders.
IT Services Transformation Award –The Selection Committee is looking for leaders who can demonstrate how their team is shifting IT from being an expense center to delivering services with greater flexibility, transparency of cost, consumption and quality.
Strategy and Planning Excellence Award – Finalists for this category have embraced dynamic planning. They have shifted from a static, cost center-based IT planning process to one that regularly links IT resources to business strategy, business demand for services and innovation and IT-led initiatives.
TBM Pacesetter Award (formerly CIO Business Leadership) – Finalists for this category can demonstrate how their organization has made significant progress in transparency, data quality, decision making and business results in less than 18 months with TBM.
Since the TBM Council Awards began in 2013, we have seen and heard incredible stories of TBM success. Now it’s your chance to share your story. Nominations are open through April 21. Nominate your team today!
