The learn and lead workshop schedule for 2020 has been announced and tickets are available now. We will be providing 3 public workshops and a fourth workshop that is available only to our Post Implementation Support Subscription Customers.
In February, our workshop is targeted to intermediate to advanced skillsets. If you have been working with a Service Cost Model for a year or more, this class is specifically for you. You might have implemented an off the shelf solution, or maybe you have a homegrown solution you have designed yourself. Providing ongoing ROI for your ITFM/TBM investment means moving past the tactical deployment of reports and models to the strategic design and use of your information and analytics. No matter what solution is working for you, having the right modeling skills is critical to get great insights for your organization.
On February 20, 2020 for those staying overnight after the workshop to beat the winter blues, we will offer a bonus free workshop in the evening that will be an IT 101 for Finance Professionals, making sure you have three domain knowledge needed to design your models.
May 12, 2020, is one of our most attended and highest demand workshops- Selecting Software Solutions and Getting Started with TBM. If you are considering implementing an off the shelf software solution like Nicus, Apptio, Upland/ComSci, or EZTBM, this workshop is a must-attend. An ITFM / TBM automation platform is an investment that can bring cultural and bottom-line impact to a company. Vendor options continue to change and grow, making the process of choosing the right platform a major challenge. Any step forward on your journey to maturity can be fraught with uncertainty and potential failure. It can be hard to justify a large investment of time and money for the next project when you don’t know what you can confidently deliver. Join Thavron CEO Nan Braun for a full day of workshops that will empower you to self assess and engage with Vendors confidently
September 24, 2020 is a workshop for attendees of all levels. IT Basics for Financial Professionals / IT and Business Alignment provides information and tools needed to understand both the Business of IT and how to align those IT Functions to Business Capabilities.
In December we will have our last workshop of the year, focused on road mapping and service portfolio metrics. This workshop will only be open for our support subscribers. If you are interested in learning more about our post-implementation support advisory, email email@example.com.
The Thavron Solutions CEO and COO will be leading a half-day workshop on Requirements Assessment and Software Selection tools at the FInancial World of Information Technology Conference today. “Automation Tools for ITFM/TBM like Apptio, Nicus, ComSci or EZTBM can be critical factors for organization success, but choosing the wrong software solution for your organization can be crippling,” said Nan Braun, CEO of Thavron Solutions, ” Organizations too often enter the process of decision making unprepared and strangled by what they don’t know about their organization.”
The Thavron Workshop is designed to assist organizations who are making the Build Vs. Buy decision, as well as companies who are entering into a search for a software vendor. Attendees learn how to assess themselves, how to prepare for the initial RFP and how to conduct an effective Proof of Concept. “By sending them home with functional tools and templates, we hope to empower attendees to make software choices that can transform their organizations,” said COO Charles Creasy.
In today’s business environment, the game changer is to be able to respond with data when someone asks “What if…”. IT Financial Management professionals have access to all of the data needed to help shape strategy, but too often, they lack the knowledge of how to build and leverage models that can answer strategic business questions reliably.
If you have already made the investment in developing a team of people and a suite of tools to help you define the value of your IT Services, you know that the pressure to show a Return on Investment ( ROI) is real. We want to help you exceed expectations.
“Modeling is a skill that has not been taught to many folks in this domain, ” explained Nan Braun, CEO of Thavron Solutions, when asked why they wanted to lead this session, “we give them automation tools and think that solves all of the problems. However, the ability to build models that provide insights without introducing noise and confusion is a skill that needs to be taught and practiced. We are excited to be able to add core skill training to the domain.” If you have not already signed up for this conference pre-workshop, this workshop is also available to be booked for your team as an onsite half day workshop, or as a remote learning workshop. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for information on how to become a critical strategic business partner today.
For many of us, the new year brings the opportunity to make new investments.
Planning an ITFM or TBM software implementation in 2019? Make sure that your Q1/2 vendor selection process is structured to help ensure success for the project. Our February Learn TBM Workshop will superpower your evaluation, and we have a bonus discount for the Holidays.
The February 2019 Learn and Lead Workshop will be focused on those who are looking to implement a solution in the next 18 months.
This is the right workshop if you are going to build your own solution or if you are going to buy an existing software solution off the shelf. Remember, if the process does not start with an understanding of your true value drivers and a balanced matrix of requirements, you will not get full value from your implementation.
Join us in Indianapolis in February for a day of learning. Take home best practices, working templates and an understanding of how to self-assess your readiness for an implementation.

At Thavron, we frequently travel to clients’ sites for design workshops, discovery sessions, project kickoffs/transitions, and other learning opportunities. While these are intensely productive, they are most often aligned with a specific client project or problem.
In order to grow into a mature ITFM/TBM or Service Portfolio Management team, you need to invest in opportunities where can learn domain best practices and continue to build a network of peers who will support you throughout the year. By getting outside of the office setting and into a workshop setting for one day, you allow yourself to focus on the material and discussion at hand without being distracted by day to day routine.
