About...

...me
I am a Project Management expert - a speaker, a blogger, a volunteer, and a professional.

During my career of over 20 years, I have been responsible for projects across industries with a special focus on the business benefits introduced by the projects’ deliverables.

My volunteer jobs (both for non-profit and professional organizations) have made the difference many times and they have brought me great satisfaction too. They have also allowed me to do things otherwise impossible, such as being part of the 2016 Leadership Institute Master Class.

I have written more than 100 articles on Project Management here on this blog and more than 15 articles were written by guest authors.

This year I have participated as a speaker on the PMI EMEA Congress in Rome, Italy with the session “Don't Let Biases Doom Your Project“ and in the Passion For Projects in Malmö, Sweden with the session “Irrational Project Management“.

What moves the most is combining doing things (thus my interest in Project Management), knowledge (being this the reason why I write on this blog and speak in congresses), and people (which motivates me to organize Project Management congresses).

...Ah-Ha-Moments

Vision
Ah-Ha-Moments ultimate purpose is to be a Project Management mandatory reference. My effort is on that direction but that clearly isn't enough. So this blog will need the help of everyone who has something to add to the Project Management discipline.

Mission
The purpose of Ah-Ha-Moments is to share knowledge, ideas and experiences about Project Management and:
  • It is intended for all Project Managers working on any industry (for those just starting on this profession and also for those who are seniors and even experts);
  • And it has different perspectives on Project Management, my own along side with others'.
At this time, I'm implementing all these by:
  • (Almost weekly) new articles posted on Fridays at 22:45 GMT
  • Guest posts
Who is this blog for?
This blog is for Project Managers and it is intended to be a place to share: that's why it has the tag line "...the network to share knowledge, ideas and experiences on Project Management.". I share mainly through the articles I post, but also with the pages "Downloads", "Software Directory" and  "Upcoming events". You can share by posting as well (there are guest posts) but mainly you can add value with your comments. And disagreeing is great!
