Organisations that adopt projects as a means to achieving change and delivering results often find it difficult to prioritise projects and to make best use of their resources. Additionally, many recent surveys have demonstrated that project backlog is a major issue in Australia. Portfolio management is a management approach that aims to align project efforts with the corporate strategy and optimise the efficient use of resources throughout the organisation.

This subject focuses on two aspects of the management of portfolios: the selection and prioritisation of projects, based on contribution to organisational benefits and achievability; and the allocation and prioritising of resources between those projects that have been chosen so that they can deliver the expected benefits.
