Optimizing Portfolio Management



Corporate planners in your organization must continually monitor and justify their portfolio of business programs and projects. Your company’s capital investments must be used to maximize value and mitigate risk. Portfolio Management is designed to implement strategic decisions, about product development, market positioning, and the future investment of company resources. Intelligent Portfolio Management selects investment opportunities, applies rigorous validation criteria, and leads to operational decisions within the strategic framework adopted by your organization. Capital and other resources are allocated to operations that are consistent with your existing organizational goals. Business performance indicators must be continually monitored to judge and steer operations on their contribution to shareholder value.
