Assessment and Planning Using Portfolio Analysis
Roberts, Laura B.
Journal of Museum Education, v35 n2 p181-186 Sum 2010
Portfolio analysis is a simple yet powerful management tool. Programs and activities are placed on a grid with mission along one axis and financial return on the other. The four boxes of the grid (low mission, low return; high mission, low return; high return, low mission; high return, high mission) help managers identify which programs might be eliminated and which might be nurtured and expanded. The tool also offers insights into how the entire portfolio should be managed.
