Companies that adopt portfolio management have strong IT governance in place, fostered by CIOs who have a solid grasp of business issues and communicate IT value across the executive team.
The top-level merits of IT portfolio management are:
- Helps IT directors establish project accountability
- Ensures open communication on funding approval and denials for new projects
- Balances investment risk and reward
- Helps IT and business leaders collaborate, and ensures IT addresses business priorities
- Eliminates overlapping and redundant projects
