TPM - Technology Portfolio Management Credential
The Technology Portfolio Management Credential (TPM) is not just a certification... It's a career enhancement opportunity. The unique Technology Portfolio Management Credential represents another industry first for The Institute for Technology Asset Management. In keeping with our global perspective of IT infrastructure initiatives and management, The Institute has capped practitioner credential options with a unique multi-disciplinary qualification.
The TPM Credential is Comprised of the Following Core Credentials:
Practitioners who follow The Institute credential planning process will focus on completing all three of these core credentials prior to moving on. However, TPM Credential candidates are permitted--encouraged--to begin their alternative professional development training at any time during their credential life cycle. Only with The Institute can you pursue multiple credentials simultaneously.
- Software & Copyright Compliance Assurance
- Software Asset Management
- Technology Asset Management
IT Asset Management is About Competencies - Not Power Silos
You are probably well aware of how fickle the job market can be. One day's highly competent knowledge worker can easily become yesterday's news with nothing more than a change in management. That's why The Institute practitioners take the long view in their credential programming. First, and foremost, we're highly competent technology asset management professionals. However, we also recognize the need to become multi-talented employees--capable of modifying our service deliverables at the drop of the proverbial pink slip. The TPM credential takes the additional step of enhancing both your credential and your career options by adding meaningful training content derived from key complimentary professional services. These may include:
- Project Management
- Contract Management
- Supply Chain Management
- Internal Auditing
- And more...
The Object--The Professional Development Opportunity--Is Here:
Once the practitioner has obtained the three core credentials, they can either retain their professional at that standing or they can pursue additional professional competencies. For example:
Project Management Component of the TPM Credential - A practitioner has completed the SCCA, SAM, and TAM/ITAM credential requirements and chooses to become a Project Management Professional (PMP)* through the Project Management Institute. As long as that practitioner is progressing along the PMI-approved credential time line, The Institute will credit the project management training toward renewing / upgrading that practitioner's Institute credentials. For the first time in our industry, you can pursue an alternative (related) credential without losing your asset management credential. Only through The Institute!
