This thesis aims to provide a strategy for development, management and use of high-quality human resource in key investment projects of PetroVietnam. As human resource management is very important to production and business activities in general and those of PetroVietnam in particular, human resource quality determines the development and success of every enterprise. Improvement of human resource quality is the foundation for improvement of corporate competitiveness. That is true for investment projects. The development process of PetroVietnam indicates that the progress, quality and effectiveness of its investments and project deployment depends enormously on its human resource quality. However, PetroVietnam has been usually in shortage of relevant high-quality human resource (i.e. managers and technical experts). The corporation has invested in and highlighted human resource development through, to name but a few, its Decision No. 2496/QĐ-DKVN dated 19 August 2009 on the Human Resource Training and Development Strategy of PetroVietnam, Period 2009 - 2015 and Orientation to 2025; Decision No. 363/QĐ-DKVN dated 24 February 2017 on the Human Resource Training and Development Strategy, period 2016 - 2025 and orientation to 2035; and, its strategic plans. However, PetroVietnam has got no consistent policies, sanctions, and measures as breakthrough solutions for development of its high-quality human resource or for identification of the relationship between development and human resource management. More notably, its focal projects have not addressed development of high-quality human resource adequately or systematically; merits have been neither attentively recognised nor given timely encouragement. This thesis on strategy for development, management and use of high-quality human resource in key investment projects of PetroVietnam thus aims to provide solutions for management and use of human resource by future focal projects of PetroVietnam. The research is based on qualitative method, analysis of the reality of management and use of human resource by PetroVietnam through its corporate reports and secondary documents, and especially my direct interviews of project managers, and documents collected from its PMBs and factory management units. Based on the reality of its focal projects and the consultation of theories on human resource management and project management, this thesis will provide strategic solutions to overcome the current weaknesses and promote the current strengths in development, management and use of human resource at focal projects of PetroVietnam. Hopefully the solutions will bring about practical benefits in implementation and success of focal projects of PetroVietnam.
