Why Read This Report

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. Deeper analysis reveals that this comes from EA teams trying to cover too much and operating in an incoherent manner. 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.
