Delivering Business Value through IT Portfolio Management Webinar Time: 05:00 PM - 06:00 PM, Presentor: TAC (The Advisory Council), Charges: Free
For years IT and the business have viewed each other as reluctant collaborators at best, and adversaries at worst. The business views IT as a necessary evil, and IT views the business as not appreciating all that IT does for them. “If only IT would deliver what we want” says the business, and “if only the business really knew what they want” says IT.
The truth is that both the business and IT are working hard and believe they are doing their best for the enterprise. The challenge is getting them aligned and working together.
Using case studies from his experience, TAC Expert Jay Borden will show how IT portfolio management can help this situation and deliver better value in the eyes of the business and IT, while promoting cooperation between the two groups. Hot issues to be addressed include:
How does IT portfolio management differ from other approaches to the alignment problem?
What types of issues does IT portfolio management address?
How does IT portfolio management work?
How do you get started with IT portfolio management?
