Delivering Value beyond OMB’s IT Spending Mandate, Learning Tree Launches New Technology Business Management (TBM) Training

HERNDON, Va., March 24, 2021 — Learning Tree International announced today the release of the first ever Technology Business Management (TBM) training course designed specifically for the U.S. federal government.  According to CIO.gov1, TBM is a powerful tool to further enable Federal IT Acquisition Reform Act (FITARA) implementation while helping to benchmark IT spending, improve acquisitions, and better understand IT investment costs – and how those investments help agencies achieve their mission.

“Learning Tree is proud to support our federal customers who must comply with this OMB mandate,” said David Brown, Learning Tree’s CEO. “The TBM framework is a great way to better align government IT spending with agency strategy, which will lead to more success and higher impact.” 

This new Learning Tree course, developed by former and current federal employees in partnership with Mason Harriman Group, focuses on advancing the practical skills needed for agencies to effectively implement TBM. Doing so provides value beyond just meeting the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) mandate, which requires that agencies utilize TBM taxonomy to capture IT costs, starting in fiscal year 2022.

“A successful TBM implementation will involve staff from across a federal agency and integrators supporting their mission. The financial, operational, and performance data pulled together as part of a TBM program will enable the organization to move from simply maintaining technology, to driving mission outcomes and investing in innovation.” said Thomas Boyce, former Deputy CIO at Nuclear Regulatory Commission and Learning Tree’s TBM course author.

Ted Vagias, Partner at Mason Harriman Group added, “Mason Harriman is excited to team up with Learning Tree on this important training initiative. We believe that government’s continued investment in TBM will arm agency leadership with the tools to more effectively manage IT investments, meet mission needs and oversee taxpayer funds – It’s simply good government.”
