IT projects differ from other projects by the presence of a large number of interconnections, both having a positive effect and a negative effect. By implementing projects with high synergistic potential, it is possible to significantly reduce portfolio costs and more effectively implement projects in general. The aim of the study is to develop a model for assessing synergistic relationships, which would take into account direct and indirect relationships, use quantitative assessment methods and have practical applicability. To achieve the goal, the social network analysis method is used, where each project in the portfolio is a network node, and the synergetic relationship is an edge. In such a network, indicators of the centrality of each project will be indicators of the significance of the project in terms of synergistic relationships. The object of the study is the company “Nestle Russia”, the subject of the study - two portfolios of internal IT projects of the company. We used the interview method, the method of analyzing social networks, etc. The first chapter of this work is devoted to the existing methods for selecting projects in a portfolio, including those that take into account various interrelations between IT projects. The second chapter presents the results of the study based on data from the company Nestle Russia LLC. In this study, the data was collected by interviews about the relationships between projects in two project portfolios, constructed grahs with weighted links, and calculated the centrality indicators for each node. The third chapter presented a formulated model for assessing synergistic relationships, presented limitations and recommendations for this model, and also highlighted the prospects for further research.
