Portfolio Measurement and Management

What is the Return on Collaboration™ for your alliance portfolio? This powerful metric, measured through our portfolio analysis process, helps identify:

  • Alliance management strategy for a specific alliance and the portfolio overall
  • The assignment of alliance management resources
  • The strategic contribution of each alliance within the portfolio and of the portfolio overall

Creating and managing metrics for your alliance portfolio is simplified with our spreadsheet-based tool. As a key component of your Center of Excellence, the fully customizable Portfolio Manager tool allows data to be accumulated and provided by alliance managers, with metrics calculated and reported in a timely and resource-sensitive manner.

Companies can follow the guidance in our white papers and within the tool, or we can assist through workshops and analysis. Either way, visualizing your portfolio and how its profile changes over time is a powerful step toward communicating the strategic impact of your alliance management efforts.
