Proudly to be one of few Arab Professionals in International Council on Monuments & Sites (ICOMOS), alongside several affiliations to International institutes; ULI, PMI, IFMA, AACE, BIFM and APMG.
When I had started my professional career; I had had two goals: “To master the value chain of built environment”, and “To teach urbanity at Academia”. I had managed within 25 years to conclude the 1st, but had to scarify the 2nd for the joyful practice of the 1st..!!
My professional career had developed from Site engineer, to Project Manager, then Director of Projects. I had experienced most clusters of Real Estate; i.e.; Master Planning, Urban Engineering, Building Design, Construction Management, Project Management, and Technical Audit.
I cordially believe that “True Project Management” is not limited to a particular line of business or predefined industry. It is a management epistemic endeavor that once is mastered, can penetrate any and everything. anything and any team. towards any agreed yet rational targets.
My professional interests are:
- Resiliently initiating Project applications towards the sustainable Quality
- Epistemic-ally focusing on best modeling of Urbanity as humane identity
- Professionally representing Clients towards the rational feasibility, and
- Thoroughly advocating lasting Knowledge context
My passion for training is inspired by my vision of knowledge management as the epistemic tool that had built, develop and sustain the human civilization. Both individual and corporate life cycles are spinning around KM and its associate knowledge zones.
