Many organizations claim that they practice project & portfolio management (PPM), but it frequently turns out that they are only carrying out consolidated project management. True portfolio management is a much more strategic approach, which regards the project portfolio as the means of executing upon organizational goals.
This distinction, though minor on its surface, is profound in its implications. Organizations that fail to adopt portfolio management risk making costly mistakes throughout all aspects of project delivery – including approving the wrong projects, managing them incorrectly, failing to recognize business-related warning signs, and consistently failing to achieve expected results.

Achieve a strategic portfolio management focus
Manage PPM as an end-to-end process, from ideas to benefit realization
Create consistency in developing proposals and business cases
Focus on business outcomes rather than project deliverables
Build a successful portfolio management culture at the grass roots level
