Have you registered for the TBM Conference yet? If not, here is another reason: join us as we announce the 2013 TBM Awards on Tuesday, November 5, at the Museum of Flight in Seattle.


After nearly six years of hosting CIO summits, we've heard from CIOs and CTOs at companies like Cisco, The Coca-Cola Company, First American, Disney, Park Nicollet Health Services and many others who have made powerful shifts in the way they deliver business value. We have learned from these innovative IT leaders, so now it’s time to recognize them.


A few weeks ago, we began the nomination process for our first TBM Council Awards. These awards will recognize executives for using TBM to improve value, transform their organizations and drive business innovation. At the November conference, the Council will recognize business technology leaders with three distinct awards, each based on the nature of business impact best demonstrated by their approach:

  • "Operational Excellence" – improving the cost-effectiveness of service delivery as evidenced by reduced unit costs, renegotiations of service levels and quality, the rationalization of applications or similar measurable improvements;
  • "Business Innovation" – funding greater innovation and improving upon the realization of benefits (e.g., new revenue sources, improved business productivity, etc.) from new investments;
  • "Business Transformation" – transforming the organization to become a services-oriented value partner.


We selected approximately 85 nominees from two pools of candidates: qualified participants of the TBM Index, in which more than 160 enterprise IT organizations have benchmarked their TBM practices; and past TBM Summit presenters, where CIOs and other leaders delivered case studies in Technology Business Management. We are currently in the process of interviewing the 19 candidates that chose to participate in the selection process.


Our selection team includes experienced leaders in both business and academia:

  • Mark Martinet, former CIO of Level 3 Communications (selection committee chairman)
  • Phuong Tram, CIO of DuPont and TBM Council Board Member
  • Rob Webb, former CIO of Hilton Worldwide and CEO of the TBM Council
  • M. Eric Johnson, Dean, Vanderbilt Owen Graduate School of Management
  • Art Langer, Director of the Executive MS in Technology Management, Columbia University
  • Chris Levitt, TBM Council CFO Research Director


Hosted by Boeing CIO Kim Hammonds, the awards dinner follows our first full day at the TBM Conference. Join us to see who wins and to learn from dozens of other Technology Business Management leaders important lessons for improving and demonstrating business value.


We look forward to seeing you there!
