    An excellent book, January 1, 2013

    This complete guide to portfolio construction and management is a very useful book. To the beginner, it should give a flavour of the field to wander. The more advanced student might find it useful for revision purposes, as well as to get an insight in some of the debated aspects of the topic. Last but not least, the practitioner might use it to enrich his own practice with that of other professionals.

    According to the author, the primary objective of portfolio management is to preserve the capital in real terms. A second objective is to let it grow (in real terms), be it only in modest proportions. In this book, the approach and tools required to achieve these objectives are very well set out in the context of both the investor and the financial markets.

    As to the investor, the reader is reminded that there is no successful portfolio management without consideration for the investor’s capacity and willingness to take risk, as well as for is situation and reference point (“benchmark”). On the other hand, the main characteristics of assets and financial markets are put forward in the context of macro and micro economics, of the developments of behavioural finance, as well as of the main theoretical developments of the past eighty years.

    Last but not least, the reader’s attention is drawn to a simple principle throughout the whole book: attention is to be paid first to the risk, then to return expectation. A wise principle, indeed, that should guide all professional in the field, especially when dealing with other’s money.

    Almost but no cigar. This is a great book with easy to understand coverage of the Portfolio construction terminology and is good for a lay person to get an excellent overview of portfolio construction. This book completely lacks concrete examples which is common to nearly all “portfolio construction” related books I have read. Should the authors feel so inclined to add practical examples I would say this would be the reference book for nearly everyone to purchase however for now this book is just a good overview of the topic.

    This book is a good summary and overview on many important financial and economic concepts. The author is developing most of the aspects of portfolio construction through well known concepts with the eyes of somebody coming from the business. He perfectly puts into perspective all those theoretical concepts and show how to use them in the real life, explaining the cons and pros with real examples.
    Gradually, you understand his methodology and the development of his model that takes into account something that too many other financial books are not considering: behavioural finance.
    The author presents his model gradually throughout the book. But the beauty of the book is that by reading the construction of his model, you can also create you own with all the tools that are presented in there.
    There is not ONE magical model for portfolio construction and that is not what this book is about, but the author is presenting his model and helps you create your own.

    As the CIO for a data analytics company, I have a finite budget and too many projects. It is always a struggle to decide on priorities and commit dollars and resources.

    Dr. Kodukula’s book goes a long way towards defining the terms (project, program and portfolio) and giving a practical methodology towards defining and managing a project portfolio. The funnel and filters portfolio model gives a new perspective on the project life cycle. The book is very well organized to lead a practitioner through the various stages of Designing, constructing, monitoring and controlling project portfolios. My PM’s would be very glad for the guidance and the tools that the book provides.

    From my perspective, section 3 is especially valuable. With constantly changing priorities, the tools provided here will help me and my team to prioritize and re-prioritize as needed. I use many financial management tools for managing various projects (technology or otherwise). Dr. Kodukula brings some of these tools to the portfolio level. I am sure I will be using many of these tools in my own financial models. The case study at the end of the book brings all the concepts together in a concrete example, which would be very helpful to project and portfolio managers alike.

    Overall, the book is written with a clarity of purpose and style that is informative and practical. I highly recommend it.

    Reality means great ideas and practical advice that will help solve everyday …, November 9, 2014

    This review is from: Organizational Project Portfolio Management: A Practitioner’s Guide (Hardcover)
    I am a project management consultant and instructor with over twenty five years of experience in my field. I have done work for over one hundred organizations in both the public and private sector in the United States and over forty other countries.
    Very frequently I am asked by my clients and students for truly outstanding books that should be placed in and utilized in their personal resource libraries. That list currently includes only seven works. Dr. Kodukula’s work is number eight. Here’s why.

    I am always looking for works that explain theory in clear, concise and crisp terms that then converts theory into reality. Reality means great ideas and practical advice that will help solve everyday problems. Dr. Kodukula’s work is must definitely in that realm of outstanding works. I have thus added it to the reference list that I pass out to inquiring students.

    Quite often I hear from my students and clients that one of their biggest challenges on their projects is a lack of resources. Dr. Kodukula flips that around and claims the real challenge is too many projects. He then prescribes effective tools and techniques to combat this supply/demand challenge. In particular I want to mention Chapter 15 which focuses on the optimum way to plan and allocate resources that are shared by competing projects.

    Finally Dr. Kodukula provides a conversation with his readers. This is vital in any must read work. And that is what Dr. Kodukula’s work is: MUST READ.This is a five star work.

    This review is from: Organizational Project Portfolio Management: A Practitioner’s Guide (Hardcover)
    Earlier this year I took a Risk Management course taught by Dr. Kodukula. During the class he mentioned many different Project Portfolio Management topics that related to the risk topics he was presenting. So when his book on Organizational Project Portfolio Management came available I picked it up right away. I was hoping for a similar training style to his in class training and was not disappointed. The book is set up into four organized easy to read sections on Project Portfolio Management Basics, Methodology, Tools & Techniques and Case Studies & Exercises. The methodology can be applied to any industry and the case studies are very practical. I was particularly interested in the chapter on Resource Management as I have been dealing with that in my current position in New Product Development. We are always looking for better ways to handle resources and the section provided some great material on the topic as well as useful templates. Overall I give this book 5 Stars and recommend it to anyone in the Project / Portfolio Management Role.
