These are the top problems with innovation portfolio management in large companies—and the shift that will accelerate adopters to high performance and growth.

Overpromise, overinvest, crash-and-burn in two years

Big investments force teams to spend heavily from the outset in order to appear credible in reaching the promises of their pitch and avoid losing their funds.
Lack of consolidated internal view

No one has a clear view of what is actually happening inside their company: what capabilities exist, the gaps to be addressed, and the opportunities to be leveraged when the perfect moment arises.
Lack of definition of portfolio progress

Most companies are still measuring progress as output—the completion of work—without tracking (or even establishing) meaningful outcomes for the customer and the business.
Lack of consolidated external view

Companies lack a consistent, customized view of external factors that could affect their business or industry.
Timing of investments

The timing challenge arises from both market and technical maturity: sometimes the market is not ready, and sometimes the market is ready but the technology is not.
Data capture is an afterthought

Data is often the last thing teams consider in portfolio management. They bring a product to market without even knowing the outcomes they’re aiming, what data they should monitor or be in place to support tracking capabilities.
Companies need to reorient themselves, not around a portfolio of products they are building, but the information they need to gather from their products—their Information Portfolio.
