Abstract

Driving sustainability, optimizing return on investments and cultivating a competitive market advantage, are imperative for organizational success and growth. In order to achieve the business objectives and value proposition, effective management strategies must be efficiently implemented, monitored and controlled. Failure to do so ultimately results in financial loss due to increased capital and operational expenditure, schedule slippages, substandard delivery on quality and the depreciation of market share. This research paper investigates and discusses management strategies focusing on the integration of effective portfolio management, efficient system development life cycles and optimal project control to ultimately drive organizational sustainability and growth. With the aid of this research, optimal decisions on project/organizational venture selection can be made. Furthermore, integrating portfolio management strategies with system development life cycles and optimal project control strategies, will optimize an organizational portfolio and enhance the probability of project and organizational success.
