Abstract:This research paper is about the innovation project portfolios that innovative companies in the Netherlands develop over the years. Having a diverse portfolio is always considered as a good way of doing business, but is that actually the case? And is it the same, no matter what line of business you are in? This paper goes deeper into the standards and patterns in innovation portfolio management. The process of recognizing patterns is one of many steps. First the projects have to be classified in different types of innovation, and then investigated for a trend that connects them in a coherent portfolio. After that this paper compares different business sectors to see if they have the same innovation trends or if there are significant differences between them. Together with two other Bachelor students we worked hard to classify these projects and get to know more about the inner workings of innovation project portfolios. Then we each used this work for our own research, and this paper is the result of choosing the direction of innovation project portfolio trends and business sectors.
