How long will your business exist?

Businesses that mindfully use a portfolio approach to managing their brands, products, services, real estate, intellectual property and other assets position themselves for greater sales, higher profit, enhanced enterprise value and long-term success than what might otherwise be achieved.

Corporate Portfolio Management entails planning and executing strategic and/or finanical investment decisions, development and improvement initiatives; rights exploitation; and divesture activities pertaining to the company’s brands, products, services, intellectual property, real property and other assets to generate revenue, mitigate risks, maximize profitability, and increase both asset and shareholder value.

What’s in your pipeline?

If your organization is like most, at least one of the below is currently happening:

  • Considerable time, effort and money are given to investigate and develop new products, services and businesses, yet no or very little return on investment is realized.
  • So much focus is on the manufacture, marketing and sales of existing products and services, that no or very few resources are allocated for planning and designing new products and services.
  • So much focus is on the existing customer targets, that no or very few resources are allocated for developing relationships
    with additional customer segments.

These situations not only destroy the perceived value of your business, but also will eventually destroy your company’s long-term viability if ignored or disregarded.
By adopting a portfolio approach, businesses not only improve profitability, but also instill a mechanism that will foster sustainability.
