Organisational survival in a dynamic competitive environment often requires the ability to produce a continual stream of successful new products and services. Project portfolio management (PPM) capabilities can improve innovation decisions and new product outcomes and are therefore receiving increasing prominence in organisations. This paper presents findings from a recent study of six successful Australian organisations that highlights the importance of human dimensions in the establishment and evolution of effective project portfolio management capabilities. Guidance is provided to help managers apply these findings to improve innovation outcomes.
