Welcome to my personal website where you can find information about teaching, researching and knowledge transfering.
Currently I am Professor at the University of Granada. I teach mainly in various centres and degrees of the University of Granada as well as in other university centres where I try to teach a little bit about project management.
Over the years my academic and professional perspective has moved from Engineering Projects to Project Management. It is not only a word switch. Project Management includes essential aspects in the development of projects such as communication, negotiation, risk, stakeholder management, the social dimension, etc.
I am very happy to tell you that the European Commission has granted me the Jean Monnet Chair on the use and improvement of the PM² Project Management Methodology, developed by the European Commission.
It is an exciting project and one to which I will devote time and effort over the next three years.The Jean Monnet Chair will have its own institutional web space (within the University of Granada).
I will keep you informed of all this, as well as of the training, research, debate and dissemination activities carried out. I shere som of tthe links where the new has been published:
I have to thank all those who have offered to participate in this outstanding project and in particular PM² Alliance, professors of the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, Universidad Politécnica de Valencia, Universidad de Valladolid and well-known practitioners in the project management field.
I am currently working in depth on the PM² Project Management Methodology, developed by the European Commission, which since 2016 has an Open character (universal use just by citing the source). PM² is a light methodology and incorporates many of the best practices in project management of the most used international standards.
The great advantage of PM² is its practical approach, «what and how to do» for which it has a series of very useful templates.
PM² also has the added value of focusing on the project management of the deliverables and outcomes of the project. Our efforts are thus focused on what is important. We must not forget that project management is one more tool to satisfy the needs and goals of our clients, companies and institutions.
Research is a fundamental pillar in a university professor’s career and so I take part of the LabIC research group, where I develop various lines of research:
- Project Management Methodologies.
- Public procurement.
- Optimisation of the project life cycle and
