Description

Digital transformation and disruptive technologies require organizations to change quickly, thus increasing the number of projects that information technology (IT) departments must handle to tackle these challenges. In order to increase the contribution of IT projects to the overall corporate strategy, project portfolio management (PPM) is applied to effectively use available IT resources. An agile PPM enables organizations to react flexible in a changing environment. However, only scarce empirical and practical evidence exists on the best practices for agile PPM approaches in diversified companies. In this paper, we outline our overall research project, which utilizes a design science approach and presents the results of our first research iteration. By conducting a case study within one company in the energy industry, we developed an artifact – a model of requirements for agile PPM for diversified companies.
