Strategic Portfolio Management - Frequently Asked Questions
What is Strategic Portfolio Management?
  • Strategic portfolio management (SPM) is about selecting and prioritizing your portfolio of projects so you maximize their profitability, which includes strict resource management and reporting capabilities.
  • It is about selecting the right projects to work on, based on the company’s corporate goals, i.e., focusing on the most profitable projects and learning to discard unprofitable projects early in their lifecycles.
How is it different to Project Portfolio Management?
  • Strategic portfolio management (SPM) is about selecting the right projects to work on so your company makes profitable investment decisions with its project portfolio; whereas project portfolio management (PPM) is about the execution and management of each individual project.
  • The difference in focus between SPM and PPM manifests itself in several ways, i.e. project selection (SPM) vs. project completion (PPM); return on investment (SPM) vs. cost management (PPM); faster decision-making (SPM) vs. compliance (SPM), etc.
What are the key "best practices" for Strategic Planning?
  • A key pillar of strategy execution is in distilling a company’s strategic vision into a tangible portfolio of projects before the strategic plan is published.
  • A good strategy realization office (SRO) will be flexible, i.e. it will be in tune with the pulse of the organization and be able to quickly rebalance the project portfolio as strategy evolves and changes, possessing a radar to detect early over-investment in low-value projects.
What management tools does Cora offer?
  • Resources: Plan the resource requirements for each project. Track variation between planned and actual resources.
  • Finance: Manage project finances from initial estimate through to actual spend.
  • Dashboards: Project and program dashboards to visualize the health of a portfolio, highlighting any issues.
  • Benefits Realization: Plan and track benefits realization across the organization.
  • Strategic Capacity Management: Easily understand requirements for the year ahead and maximize usage of global resource pools.
What factors influence Portfolio Analysis in Strategic Management?
  • What projects should we prioritize?
  • What are the consequences of not delving into a particular project?
  • Do we have a realistic financial cost and resource estimate for each strategic objective?
  • Have we identified and resourced the projects that are most critical to the strategic vision?
