Complete visibility is essential
This is one of the main purposes of strategic portfolio management: to give stakeholders the visibility they need to better understand interdependencies that exist between projects, programs and other enterprise portfolios to improve decision making. This is no easy task, especially when you consider that all of the different enterprise portfolios – projects, IT assets, capabilities, services, products, etc. – are often owned by different stakeholders and managed in different systems. This makes having complete visibility and transparency across your entire organization a challenge.
