Expectations to be fulfilled by R&D Project Portfolio Management
Konferensbidrag (offentliggjort, men ej förlagsutgivet), 2004
This in-depth case study identifies needs and/or expectations that are to be fulfilled by R&D project portfolio management, and how these needs and/or expectations are distributed among different organisational units. The expectations on R&D project portfolio management are reported too comprehensively in literature. They are normally defined to be: facilitating choice of the right projects, operationalising business strategy and allocating resources. The study shows that managing R&D project portfolios involves many different
expectations, distributed and known differently among different organisational units in the company. This differentiated view indicates that if R&D portfolio management is designed to fulfil the expectations so broadly described in the literature, some of the
expectations identified here are likely to be unfulfilled.
