Business management, project management and portfolio management can prove challenging in any context, whether individually or collectively. The first textbook to integrate general management and project portfolio management, Business Management by Portfolio explains the science behind these concepts. It also explains how this approach results in a people-oriented philosophy which attracts (and maintains) talented, creative, and goal-oriented individuals in a dynamic environment because it offers ample opportunities for growth and self-actualisation.Though many theories claim to incorporate efficiency alongside value-based leadership, current management theory and practice demand more. Business Management by Portfolio addresses additional management skills, which include: optimal resource- and risk-management, cost-effective strategy implementation, and customer satisfaction, while guiding readers through these concepts by means of relevant contemporary examples.
