Reconsidering IT as a Portfolio

I was reading Bruce MacEwen’s blog, Adam Smith, Esq., this evening and saw that he addressed one of my longtime favorite tech topics – taking a portfolio approach (based on modern portfolio theory) to technology. Ron Friedmann also discussed this topic recently.
I have written and spoken on this topic quite a bit over the years – see, for example, this article from 2001 – but I can’t say that I’ve set the world afire with the idea. So, I’m hopeful that the recent attention to the topic will prompt you to consider the approach as a way to help define your technology strategy.
As an aside, I’m especially intrigued by the combination of portfolio theory and “prudence,” as you’ll see in my article I linked to above.
