WHY EMPLOY SERVICE PORTFOLIO MANAGEMENT?
Employing service portfolio management may involve a radical re-do for all business units involved, but its benefits – and the benefits of a transparent service catalog – are measurable:
- Customers understand exactly what you, as a service provider, will deliver
- There’s cradle-to-grave transparency into value, costs, and risks
- Services in the pipeline can be monitored as well as operational services
- It helps to justify proposed services and major changes to existing services
Ultimately, tracking the value, cost, and risk of every service your service organization provides also helps to position it as indispensable to your customers, because you know – quickly – how valuable a service is.
