The Critical Role of Portfolio Management for Vision Realization

Most organizations do have a strategy; it is in the realization of the strategy where they suffer the most. Portfolio Management offers a critical and essential framework for linking government or business objectives to successful initiative, programs and projects. It bridges organizational strategy with both organizational development and sustainability. Portfolio balances adaptability with sustainability through managing demand and supply pipelines, while surviving the era of VUCA (HBR defines it as short for volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity, and a catchall for “Hey, it’s crazy out there!”). Portfolio Management offers the balance through the interconnected management of six domains:

  1. Strategy Realization Management
  2. Governance – Organizational to Project
  3. Capacity and Capability Building
  4. Stakeholder Engagement
  5. Value Management
  6. Risk Portfolio Management

Portfolio Management is the missing link with top management for projects and programs to succeed. When top managers utilize a sound portfolio management framework, vision realization becomes a reality. Vision Realization Offices focus on strategy, performance reporting, PMO support, change management and communications. Portfolio Management offers the means for selecting the right investments and initiatives and empowers the organization through monitoring the health of the various projects and programs. Accordingly, balancing activities are concluded.
