Boston Consultant Group – Strategic Investment Imperative


In this blog we have included an excellent report by the Boston Consulting Group into how a Portfolio Office (PMO) provides value in supporting strategic investment decision making.

It highlights that the only things  that are predictable are in increasing rate of change and greater uncertainty.

Interesting conclusion that the perception of weak leadership is often more about failure to engage with the change and lack of information than actual weak leadership.

The report highlights that the successful Portfolio Offices (PMOs) deliver agility and value by:

  • Focusing on critical initiatives
  • Implement smart and simple processes
  • Foster talent and capability
  • Encourage a culture of change

The Aspire Europe Align Framework, our portfolio management framework, addresses all 4 of these points with carefully refined process model that is interweaved with a common change lifecycle for all change initiative.

The governance model is supported with guidance customised for individual roles that enable individuals to realise their potential.
