How many organisations truly know what constitutes their portfolio?

Matt Rawson poses this question on the Association for Project Manager’s blog: does anyone really know what makes up their portfolios? Are portfolios made correctly at the start of an effort or are they retro-fitted at the end? The brief post reviews the reasons he’s asking the question, and provides a few answers (in the comment section and by other PM professionals) that reveal the prevalence and depth of the problem. One commenter points out that many organizations view portfolio management as business plans instead – which is both correct and incorrect, depending on which side of the computer you sit at.
