Lead the Business

Some of the work that happens in the portfolio is not directly support (Support the Business) or growth oriented (Grow the Business). Some of the work in the portfolio has to do with management and leadership.

The “Lead the Business” category of work is for internal initiatives that are required to strengthen your organization so that you can further lead the business toward its goals, mission and vision.

For instance, your organization may decide to place a major emphasis on Knowledge Management.

You may think that if you are better able to share and leverage knowledge, you will be able to deliver work better, faster and cheaper. If you are the IT organization, you might take this a step further and sponsor a Knowledge

Management initiative across the entire company. This is an effort that was not necessarily championed by the business, but it is an area that the CIO might sponsor as a way to lead the business. This is called “Lead the Business” work because you are undertaking the project on behalf of the entire company – not just your own organization.

Another example might be a project to move your organization to a level 2 on the Capability Maturity Model (CMM). The sponsor might believe it will help the organization be more efficient and effective. CMM 2 should help you deliver your work better, faster and cheaper. If you are successful, other organizations in the company may want to move to CMM 2 as well.

However, one organization may take the lead in the hopes of making a major business impact after it has been successfully implemented. This category is more than just running the business and it may not directly lead to growing the business. However, there is a sense that by executing projects like these, your organization's capabilities will increase, which will lead to being more efficient and effective in the future.
