We invite you to join our 3rd annual TBM Australian Summit to engage with more than 100 IT executives for a one day event focused on C-suite alignment and transformational strategies, shared by distinguished IT leaders from Australia’s premier organisations.

TBM is both pragmatic and transformational. Its disciplines – such as cost transparency, benchmarking and planning – have helped CIOs optimize costs, rationalise application portfolios, accelerate service management, and execute cloud-first strategies. But most importantly, TBM has helped hundreds of CIOs improve and communicate value to their business partners.

Led by distinguished IT leaders, the TBM Australian Summit provides an unprecedented opportunity to learn from excutive peers who have successfully driven innovation, transformation and significant business outcomes with TBM.

Why Attend?

This is an exclusive executive event dedicated to managing the business of IT and will provide a unique opportunity to enjoy insightful keynotes and panel discussions that share how TBM enables you to:
  • Communicate the business value of investments
  • Align with the financial and business goals of your company
  • Optimise through fact-based tradeoffs of cost, capacity, and risk
  • Transform IT into an agile and efficient contributor to business value

Our TBM Australian Summit 2016 agenda will include some of the most forward-thinking IT leaders in the world, coming together to explore today’s technology and business imperatives, and openly sharing how they are managing and transforming IT within their organisations with TBM.

9:30 - 9:45 TBM Summit Welcome
9:45 - 10:30 Value Creation by the Numbers: Technology Business Management in Australia

Technology Business Management (TBM) has been adopted by over 40% of the Fortune 100 along with hundreds of other private companies and public sector agencies. The reason is simple: technology resources --- skilled people, budgets and time --- are in short supply but the business demand for them appears infinite. In this panel discussion, executives heading TBM at a few of Australia’s leading private and public sector enterprises will share how TBM helps Australian companies balance the cost, consumption and value of IT and discuss the lessons they’ve learned in improving maturity and accountability.

10:30 - 10:45 Networking Break
10:45 - 11:45 The Four Value Conversations You Should Be Having
Todd Tucker, General Manager & Author, TBM Council

Over the last three years, TBM Council General Manager Todd Tucker has had hundreds of interviews with CIOs, CTOs, CFOs and other business- and tech-savvy leaders from Fortune 500 companies to medium-sized enterprises to government agencies. These interviews and other research were the basis for his book on Technology Business Management. In researching and writing, Mr. Tucker discovered an important truth: the most effective CIOs are good at constructing value conversations between their own people and with their executive business partners. These leaders have moved beyond questions like “What do we get for all that money we spend on IT?” to fact-based tradeoffs for improving business value. In this discussion, Mr. Tucker will share his insights about these conversations and why transparency is essential to having them.

Key session discussion topics:

  • How transparency improves brand loyalty and demand
  • The four types of conversations needed to optimize value and trust
  • Who, what, when and how -- making value conversations a routine Ppart of your business
  • Where do you start?
