Portfolio Analysis helps your Project Management Office (PMO) and key stakeholders evaluate the alignment of new initiatives with strategic goals and objectives. It guides the decision-making process using its frontier algorithm, ROI calculator, and risk profile analysis to determine the scheduling of new projects in order of importance. The app’s project portfolio analysis also evaluates those activities already in progress, prioritising and optimising the portfolio against organisational objectives and the availability of financial and human resources.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Portfolio Analysis?
Project Portfolio Analysis involves analysing and prioritising projects based on their strategic value, risk, financial impact, and resource requirements. Its main function is to ensure that the organisation’s projects are aligned with its strategic objectives. The aim is to maximise the overall value of the portfolio whilst minimising risk by correctly identifying project and portfolio priorities. This requires an assessment of the performance and status of each project, identifying poor or low-value projects, and re-allocating resources to optimise the overall return of the portfolio.

Why is Portfolio Analysis Important for Project Management?
Portfolio analysis is a key aspect of Project Portfolio Management (PPM) because it assists in the efficient allocation of resources between all activities. By prioritising projects against strategic value, financial impact, potential issues, and resource requirements, you can be confident that your organisation is investing its resources in the right projects at the right time. This helps maximise the overall value of the portfolio whilst minimising risk.
Portfolio prioritisation also guides organisations on which projects to pursue, which can be deferred or cancelled, and how resources might be better allocated across the portfolio to achieve the best possible return.
