Abstract [en]

This article investigates the nature and relationship of project portfolio control techniques and portfolio management performance, and how this relationship is moderated by situational idiosyncrasies of internal and external dynamics, industries, governance types, and geographic location. A worldwide questionnaire with 242 responses was used, of which 136 high-performing responses were filtered out for quantitative analysis of best practices. Three portfolio control factors were identified: portfolio selection, portfolio reporting, and decisionmaking style. Two measures for portfolio management

performance were identified: achievement of desired portfolio results and achievement of project and program purpose. The results

indicate that different portfolio control mechanisms are associated with different performance measures. A contingency model was

developed, including moderating effects by contextual variables.
