Project portfolio management : a structured review of academic literature
Thesis (MBA)--Stellenbosch University, 2015.
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The academic view on project portfolio management is not as well formulated as in commercial literature (PMI / APM / IPMA). It is not understood if there is sufficient agreement in academia for a universally accepted definition of project portfolio management and its value contribution. A structured literature review was conducted to determine if there are commonly reoccurring project portfolio management principles identified in academic literature and to find the most suited definition of PPM. The research revealed a number of principles that are consistently referenced by the various articles. A suitable definition to satisfy the majority of the articles was not identified and the author proposes a definition to suit the academic content.
