Optimizing the Business Value of IT: How IT Investment Portfolio Management Helps Drive High Performance
Accenture has developed the Investment Portfolio Management Framework, a diagnostic model to help CIOs and top business executives align IT investments with the business needs and improve the management of limited IT resources.
Accenture's framework and supporting diagnostics help companies clarify the accountabilities for key elements of the governance framework and the operating model required to fulfill them. They define the outputs required (for example, management information) to improve decisionmaking, together with the processes and tools required to maintain effective oversight and control.
The outcome is companies can better understand the maturity of their governance processes, identify areas for high-payback action and craft a transformation plan to improve performance.
