Research and Consultancy

Dr Oliomogbe’s principal research interest is understanding the link between how organisations deploy project management and attaining competitive advantage. This focuses attention on the intangible benefits derived from the deployment of project management which are critical for the project economy in congruence with the fourth and fifth industrial revolution. These project management capabilities reflect the path dependence of organisations, and support the increasing reliance on digital technologies and digital innovation.

Her other research interests include the construct of project value and project management value, as well as socio-technical approaches to business problems with an emphasis on business models and megaprojects.
