The role of Project Management Office (PMO)

The Philosophical approach on Project Management emanates from the deep research of human history and nature. This site contains research publications, articles and theses based on this discipline.

This is the centralized and coordinated management of the philosophical related projects.  The PMO is performing a Portfolio Management for this scope. This includes identifying, prioritizing, authorizing, managing, and controlling such proposals of projects, assign them to programs, to achieve the specific research objectives.

The PMO manages that work of the projects, and the work typically involves competing demands for philosophical approach analysis on their scope, time, cost, risk and quality as well as research requirements with differing needs and expectations.

The Research Project Managers (RPM) are assigned to achieve the research project objectives. This is a challenging, high-requirements role with significant responsibility. It requires flexibility, knowledge of the research methods, critical judgment, and a solid knowledge of project management practices. A project manager must be able to understand the research project detail, but manage from the overall project perspective. As the person responsible for the success of the project, the RPM is in charge of all aspects of the project including, but not limited to:

  • Developing the research project management plan and all related component plans
  • Keeping the research project on track in terms of schedule and budget
  • Identifying, monitoring, and responding to risk, and
  • Providing accurate and timely reporting of project metrics.

The PMO is committed to following the global standards of project management methodology to complete it mission. Project Management is accomplished through the use of processes such as initiating, planning, executing, controlling and closing. Project management is the application of knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to project activities to meet the project requirements. Project management is accomplished through the appropriate application and integration of the 42 logically grouped project management processes comprising the 5 Process Groups. These

Process Groups are:
