Putting the wind in your organization's sails
Research Portfolio Analysis

Research portfolio analysis can serve as a tool for strategic planning processes or provide information about an existing portfolio. Windrose Vision uses portfolio analysis to identify areas of overlap in existing portfolios and gaps in relation to existing goals. We compare internal and external portfolios to increase understanding of the internal portfolio’s role in a broader context. Windrose Vision performs descriptive and comparative biomedical R&D portfolio analysis as an additional tool to inform ongoing research management processes.

Questions that research portfolio analysis can answer include: 
  • How can the organization more efficiently allocate resources (e.g., streamlining or eliminating programs)?
  • What priority areas are consistent and can be coordinated across the organization’s existing programs and initiatives?
  • What has been the organization’s investment in research of a particular category?
