Tech/Engineering - Management / Project Management and Controls
English term or phrase: Portfolio (in this context)
It's a presentation of a Project Controls IT Tool.

The text is the following...

"From a Management perspective we heard continually that the data that they're receiving from the Project Control staff is often old and it's information that it's too late for them to respond to and to make timely decisions.
And largely this is due to the fact that they lack a reliable view just within the Project but even further across a ***portfolio*** or an enterprise.
