New White Paper on Accelerating Business Value with SAFe® and Technology Business Management
We are pleased to announce the release of the Accelerating Business Value with SAFe and Technology Business Management (TBM) white paper.
As organizations learn how to increase business and technical agility with SAFe, they also face another significant challenge—how to manage the massive increase in technology spending that now exemplifies many modern companies. Moreover, many IT organizations do not have full transparency into their spending or have a method for allocating their costs, and therefore may not be able to demonstrate the real value they bring to the business in return for the investment in technology.
Fortunately, there’s an established approach for running IT like a business—Technology Business Management (TBM)–which provides technology leaders with standards and validated best practices to communicate the cost, quality, and value of IT investments to their business partners. In turn, IT is better positioned to drive innovation in the enterprise.
SAFe 4.6 Accelerating Business Value with SAFe and Technology Business Management White Paper
Applying TBM with SAFe provides a powerful combination that enables IT to deliver more value with more transparency, to achieve greater business agility, and to establish a stronger and more accountable partnership with the business. Together, these two frameworks help IT shift from ‘running-the-business’ spending to ‘growing-the-business’ investment, which results in faster and better business value, aligned with the strategy and goals of the enterprise.

We hope that you’ll find this white paper to be a valuable resource to accelerate value delivery and to better communicate the increasing value of IT to executives, leaders, managers, and practitioners.
