Sponsored Research Program: Application and Guidelines
Types of Research and Topics of Interest
We encourage thoughtful, innovative research of two major types:
- Translational research, which may include an evidence-based study of existing research or evidence-building research. We are interested in work that tells a “story of what exists” in the context and/or practice of project, program and portfolio management beyond the current body of knowledge. Scholars in a variety of disciplines and fields of study are invited to bring their particular angle of vision to bear on a research question using PPPM “as the context” of the research.
- Unique, new theory-building research or the integration of existing theories that, together, form an interpretive framework for PPPM.
Exclusions: We do not accept submissions focused on software development, mathematical models with little or no direct application, or historical research.
