Principles of Good Strategic Portfolio Management 

Presented by David Matheson – CEO, SmartOrg & SDP Fellow
(SDP Webinar - Invited Talk)

Strategic portfolio management differs greatly from "operational” portfolio management, basically concentrating on selecting the best projects to develop and prioritizing allocation of resources on producing the highest possible economic value throughout the development process. Decision making is complicated by risks and uncertainty around technical, timing, cost and commercialization. Stemming from decision analysis, coupled with the need to cope with the real world, processes and tools have steadily developed to support quality decision making around R&D, NPD and Innovation strategic portfolio management.

During this webinar, Matheson draws on his considerable experience helping companies create value from their strategic portfolios, highlighting the "Top Four Must-Do Areas of Innovation Practice” that can drive the value of your project/product portfolio.


  • Why you can’t pick individual winners but you can have a winning portfolio
  • The difference between strategic and operational portfolios
  • What does a "balanced portfolio” really mean?
  • Portfolio management is a learning process
