Why Read This Report

For a few years now, enterprise decision makers have most often listed improving customer experience (CX), growing revenue, or reducing costs as their top priority. Changing customer demands mean that firms must plan continuously; they also need robust portfolio management practices to differentiate themselves from the competition without breaking the bank. This report examines the practices that project management offices (PMOs) and application development and delivery (AD&D) professionals must adopt to support their business peers. This is an update to a previously published report. Forrester reviews and revises it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy.
