With the dominant contingency theory view, studies have primarily focused on intra-organisational issues whilst acknowledging that different practices are needed in different environments. A strategic view of managing project portfolios, however, requires adopting a stronger external orientation. We call for research on the management of project portfolios. We investigate the relationship between project portfolios and their context, based on four theoretical alternatives: institutional theory, stakeholder theory, resource dependence theory, and sensemaking theory. The results offer explanations to the mechanisms connecting project portfolios with their context, hence calling for a reformulation of portfolio success and a new research agenda for portfolios’ external connections. We also indicate a potential cross-fertilisation of the theoretical angles, with implications for the enactment of strategy, criteria of success, complex stakeholder relations, and ways of managing a project portfolio.",
