Value-driven portfolio management

Managing for value ensures maximum contribution to an organization's strategic objectives.

Successful organizations continuously adapt their services to changing customer demands and expectations. And with the new opportunities in our digitizing society, these are increasing daily. Portfolio management enables an organization to respond and anticipate this quickly and flexibly, by facilitating timely decision-making on the necessary adjustments, given the available resources and financial means. This prevents that at the end of the year far fewer and different initiatives or products are realized than previously agreed upon.

Realizing support

Setting up and implementing portfolio management in a professional manner requires broad support within an organization. It is a management tool that touches the essence of the organization because it enables the organization's goal to be realized. Portfolio management is about making choices and especially about learning to say no to those products and services that do not contribute or contribute too little to the goal of the organization. These are the moments when support is tested the most.
