Adequately managing project interdependencies among diverse and simultaneous projects is deemed critical for successful implementation of project portfolios. The challenge is great because it may entail managing a complex network of project interdependencies that keeps changing over time. The presented study investigates the managerial challenges that may undermine effective management of project interdependencies in IT/IS project portfolios. The investigation is based on evidence from reviewing relevant literature and documented studies associated with managing project interdependencies. The main contribution of this study is to demonstrate three managerial challenges of project interdependencies in project portfolios. We demonstrate the challenges from three perspectives: types of interdependencies, patterns of interaction and cost/benefit impact of project interdependencies.
