TBMA challenges are designed to help sharpen your TBM and Apptio skills. See title for rating: [+] Easy [++] Moderate  [+++] Challenging


Premier CSM Christopher Davidson has one more challenge for TBMAs this year. Heading into the holidays we'll give you a little extra time to answer this one. Respond by Dec 31.


Stumpers are typically worth 30 points, but to start 2018 off strong, we'll award 50 points to anyone who answers this one correctly. Kick off your 2018 Community presence with a bang and help Chris fix his report chart.
