The Total Business Integration (TBI) Methodology

First created at Johnson & Johnson for enterprise use, and now in use at Best Buy and other organizations, is currently proposed as the basis for a global integration best practice by the EAI Industry Consortium. The TBI methodology will evolve over time through a number of workshops and activities being driven by EAIIC Methodology Committee (John Schmidt, Chair) and the EAIIC Best Practices Committee (Steve Fields, Chair). Even more exciting is the fact that the first version of TBI is now available for EAIIC members.
