Succesvolle portfolio's
22 November 2012

Especially in times of crisis it is crucial to have the right portfolio. Each year companies increase their product range on average by 10% in spite of the fact that the effect of the crisis reduces sales by 20% to 40%. This is due to the fact that 60% of industrial companies do not have an explicit product strategy. Without strategic portfolio management, this structural proliferation remains unchecked and causes operatingresults to come under undue pressure. This is the conclusion of portfolio experts Laar, De Gier and De Wolf in the new Berenschot bookSuccesvolle portfolio's, portfoliomanagement in de praktijk (Successful Portfolios, Portfolio Management in Actual Practice).

However, there is still reason for concern. Today's times demand versatile companies with a refined strategy and implementation.

strategische conversatie

Uncertainty will be omnipresent in 2012. This is the biggest challenge in setting a strategy. Companies appear to focus on things they have control over in these uncertain times. Companies withdraw from customer focused strategies to product focused strategies, tailoring solutions to customer requirements is of decreasing interest and co-design is thought to be less important than last year. Also companies strive less to build alliances or cooperation with other parties in the value chain. Companies first and foremost try to distinguish themselves by the quality of their products and services. We hope this does not lure them into neglecting their roles in value chains but rather maintain an external orientation.
