Welcome to my personal website where you can find information about teaching, researching and knowledge exchanging.
Currently I am Professor on Engineering Project at the University of Granada and I hold a Jean Monnet Chair on PM2 (Project Management Methodology by European Commission). Yo can visit the Institutional Website clicking this link.
This is an amazing project granted by European Commission (Erasmus + Program – Jean Monnet Activities). During the period 2020-2023 we will carry out teaching, training, researching and debating related to PM2.
I teach mainly in various centres and degrees of the University of Granada as well as in others universities 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 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
