What is
Innovation Portfolio Management?

Innovation Portfolio Management (iPM) is one of Googols developed disciplines which processes and tools help managers create a relevant foundation of business projects and products that can more effectivly stand up to the organisations strategies and goals.

Googol describes iPMs positioning in the following way:

  • Strategy answers the question “why should we innovate?”
  • iPM answers the question “what should we innovate?”

iPM handles perspectives such as decision-making, risk analysis and resource allocation.


How the day-to-day operations can better realise the companies strategy.

Connection between the different portfolios: Idea, project and product/service.

Resource Allocation and that realisation that not all projects can nor should be completed.

The need for a balansed and long-term portfolio.

The organisations risk management in relation to portfolio value.

The power in visualising a portfolio approach which otherwise is seen as rather absract.

Using methods of analysis for quality as well as quantity.
