Strategy to Portfolio (S2P)

How to align your investments and portfolio to the business.

Value Stream Chart (Level 2)

​The S2P Value Stream is a framework that helps align IT to business goals and plans. Traditional IT planning and portfolio activities put emphasis on evaluation, approval, and delivery tracking of project proposals. Discussion with business often becomes minimizing costs for IT Projects or assets rather than the value of services provided to business from IT. The goal of the S2P Value Stream is to create an IT portfolio framework that allows IT organizations to optimize services provided to business by bringing together multiple functional areas.
