Portfolio Management Framework
Setting up and Running Portfolios of Work
No company has the resources to meet all of its business needs. A portfolio management process provides a way to select, prioritize, authorize and manage the totality of work in the organization. This includes work that has been completed, work in-progress and work that has been approved for the future.
Managers that do not understand how their budgets are spent, and who cannot validate that scarce resources are assigned to work that is of the most value, will find themselves under greater scrutiny and second-guessing in the future. Portfolio management can help your organization answer some of the most basic, yet difficult, questions regarding work performed and value provided.
TenStep has a predefined model for implementing portfolio management in your organization using our ten step model:
When you manage your work as a portfolio, you change the emphasis from the costs of each initiative to the value provided. If the value (and alignment) is right, the work will get authorized. If the value is not there, the work should be eliminated, cut or backlogged. This focus on value is especially appealing to the IT organization, which has traditionally been seen as a cost to the business rather than an enabler for providing business value.
