Project portfolio governance is often the entry point for EA governance: EA teams are involved to validate projects' design and architecture fit with standards. A recent survey suggests that current EA involvement in project portfolio governance suboptimizes the value EA could bring.

EA teams can tune their involvement with project portfolio management (PPM) decisions using their EA archetype: the models of EA focus and scope based on the expectations of the larger IT organization and management.
