Why Read This Report

As companies prepare for 2018, improving customer experience joins revenue growth and cost reduction as a top-three priority. Changing customer demands mean that firms must plan continuously, and differentiation without breaking budgets requires robust portfolio management practices. In this report, we examine the practices that project management office (PMO) and enterprise architecture (EA) professionals must adopt to support their business peers. Forrester reviews and revises this report periodically for continued relevance and accuracy. We are now updating it to reflect our most current data on strategic portfolio management.
