Guest speaker: Margo Visitacion, VP & Principal Analyst at Forrester Research
The C-level suite agrees that aligning business and technology objectives are an essential element in achieving what’s necessary to win, retain and serve their customers, however, are they putting their money where their mouths are? The data tells a different story. According to Forrester Research, while two thirds of CIOs and CMOs agree that the CMO is an active participant in strategic planning, the perception of CIO involvement varies significantly between the two roles. Moreover, half of surveyed PMO leaders feel they have all the tools in place to competently manage the portfolio pipeline. Companies are routinely adopting practices to deliver faster and better; it’s time for executives to do the same. Effectively managing a portfolio that enables business leaders to achieve their strategic objectives requires tooling that supports pragmatic practices in order to gather data at the right level and at the right time.
This presentation examines portfolio management trends and best practices that high achieving organizations have applied to turbo charge their planning process.
