Todd Tucker, vice president and general manager of the Technology Business Management Council, discusses the new playbook from the General Services Administration and Department of Education, detailing steps for government agencies to take to succeed with TBM.
The President’s Management Agenda calls for every agency to use TBM within three fiscal years, but some agencies are still trying to figure out what it is and how it will affect the way they do business. Todd Tucker, vice president and general manager of the Technology Business Management Council, explains TBM and the transformation they are trying to make happen. “TBM is really a framework of automation, data, rules and responsibilities for improving the value and addressing the risk of your technology spending and investments. It is a data-driven approach to managing I.T.,” Tucker tells Government Matters. “It is not just money, it is time, money, assets, it is data. All of those form and lead to the outcomes that the agency has to drive, the mission. It’s about getting all of that right, that takes a system, and processes, and data.”
