History of project portfolio management

Project portfolio management started in Finland in the early 2000s, as IT departments and information management units looked for a way to prioritize their various projects. In the 2010s, the method spread from IT projects to product and business development. Now, portfolios are found in the private, public, and third sectors. They are being used to manage the most diverse types of projects.
