Organizations often do not have standardized processes for the intake of new ideas and no consistent view of the drivers needed to assess the value of these ideas. In addition, IT is spending money on low-value services and doesn’t have the ability to understand and track value in order to prioritize IT investment.
Service portfolio management ensures that services are directly linked to business objectives, and IT investments are optimized by prioritizing services that provide the most value to the business.
The steps in this blueprint include:
- Set up the Service Portfolio Worksheet.
- Establish the Value Assessment Framework.
- Create a service intake process.
- Assess active services.
- Communicate and implement the service portfolio process.
