Portfolio Management Definition
PORTFOLIO MANAGEMENT is the continuous process of
selecting, prioritizing and managing the optimum
mix of corporate investment in products, RD,
projects, hardware/software, assets, operations,
etc. to deliver maximum business value. In this
decision making process, management can focus
their limited resources on investments that are
achievable and strategically aligned with
business goals. The resulting portfolio delivers
a balance of what is possible and what is needed.
