Nowadays, the Project Management Office has to give the needed strategic support and identify and react quickly to upcoming issues. Therefore, the PMO needs to be proactive, tuned in to the business needs, and quickly adapt to changing business strategies. The PMO must have a full overview of the IT portfolio and incoming demands and analyze and prioritize business cases and project proposals considering their effect on value chains and their processes.
Since project and service managers use individual tools and methods, it is difficult for the PMO to evaluate the overall IT portfolio as a basis for delivering maximum value.
