Portfolio Management in a Post-Pandemic Economy

In the aftermath of COVID-19, the CFO needed help determining which product lines to funnel additional support to vs. defund. A Gartner advisor provided a crisis recovery framework and objective advice for thoroughly assessing the portfolio, as well as expert guidance for justifying accelerated investments in key areas (and cutbacks in others).
