The business world doesn't stop just because you need to optimize your operations. No, your business still needs to be able to quickly respond to customer demands with high quality service delivery even when it's in the midst of great transformation.

But, during times of significant change, it is not unusual for work (particularly that which crosses organizational boundaries) to get "hung-up" by resource constraints and political red tape. After all, no one wants to be the one that winds up with the short end of the stick!

Clearly, organizing work into a portfolio of projects and programs reduces the obstacles to quick response by offering a different perspective on the way transformation results are achieved.
