What is portfolio management?


About this SIG

Portfolio management ensures organisations invest in the ‘right’ projects/programmes to support their strategic objectives.

We aim to support everyone interested in PfM by promoting awareness of latest practices, researching new ideas, developing new approaches, and providing ways to share experiences and debate challenges. Our intention is to be a major contributor to the future development of PfM through encouraging and facilitating cross-professional collaboration.

The first 10 years

This document is a short ‘history’ of Association for Project Management’s (APM) Portfolio Management Specific Interest Group (SIG) from its inception in 2010 and what we have achieved during the subsequent 10 years, during which time SIG membership (followers) has grown to more than 4,500.

It’s a snapshot of the events and people associated with its progression up until the end of 2020, and looks at the main achievements and challenges with some thoughts on where the SIG and PfM might go next.

The format consists of, broadly, an overview of each ‘SIG year’ running from annual committee elections at each AGM (usually held early summer) and through to the next AGM. It includes links to all of the SIG publications, major events, SIG conferences (and to most of the presentations) for those wishing to find out more.

Hopefully, this ‘history’ will provide a reference record for past/present/future SIG members, become part of APM’s ‘corporate memory’ and bring back some good memories for all those who have been on this journey, however long or short their participation.
