PMP® Exam Prep Question of the Week


To ensure maximum return on investment of a portfolio, senior management attempts to ensure that resources are allocated to _____________________.

  1. the endeavors that properly align with organizational objectives.
  2. the endeavors that achieve the highest ROI.
  3. the projects or programs that are directly related to each other.
  4. the projects or programs that are most likely to succeed.

The correct answer is 1.

A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge—Fifth Edition (PMBOK® Guide) defines a portfolio as “projects, programs, subportfolios, and operations managed as a group to achieve strategic objectives.” Since the question refers to a portfolio, and answer A is the only one of the answers that directly addresses alignment with the organizational objectives, it is the most correct answer.
