IT Project Portfolio Management

The IT Project Portfolio Management includes the planning and coordination of all IT projects and programmes. Due to the discrepancy between the number of projects and the available budget and ressources, projects are prioritised and realised within the available capacities. The annual planning is the starting point for the operative controlling of project portfolios. Projects are derived from the master plan and are exposed to scoring. Within the framework of the available budget and resources, projects are commissioned. Changes (planned, unplanned) are cyclical controlled in project portfolio management and are submitted to the management for decisions. Together with the prognosis it is the basis for controlling the IT budget. 

bach consulting accompanies its customers in the process of identification, evaluation and controllling of IT measures. In particular bach consulting offers solutions to the following questions:
