Abstract: Organisations need to link portfolio of projects to business strategy to optimise organisational benefits, and make sure their business will survive in competitive environments. This research aims to define the benefit of using mix approaches to integrate organisational strategies with their portfolio of projects for project-based companies. This paper illustrates how the use of mix approaches of project portfolio management (PPM), balanced scorecard (BSC), and analytic hierarchy process (AHP) can increase organisational performance and effectiveness in a real life case company. An effective PPM conceptual model is proposed to illustrate the overall roadmap from organisational strategy to projects. Further, a portfolio strategy map is developed to visualise the cause and effect connection between portfolios and other strategic objectives using BSC approach. Finally, this study defines a portfolio selection criteria procedure using AHP to evaluate and select the right projects. Four workshops of project experts were convened, and several case study projects were considered to facilitate the success of the portfolios thereby adding value to the company.
