Why Read This Report

Responding to demand for high-quality customer experience, firms are pervasively adopting Agile and taking on more initiatives. When these digital initiatives scale, the lack of enterprise program management maturity is evident. Consistent disciplines are essential, but past portfolio management office (PMO) failures make enterprise architecture (EA) pros leery. Modern PMOs take a center-of-excellence approach to strike the right balance: building competencies; delivering them in a lightweight, service-oriented approach; and stripping bureaucracy. This is an update of a previously published report; Forrester reviews and updates it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy.
