The PMI Madrid Chapter met with several Project Management

book authors on April 19, 2022

On the occasion of the celebration in Spain of the ‘month of the book’, the PMI Madrid Chapter invited several authors of books to share their experiences as authors. To open the session, Luis Reyes Plasencia, from the PMI Madrid Chapter, asked a series of questions to the attendees trying to make the session as interactive as possible. Some of the attendees attended in person and others virtually.

Luis asked the following questions:

  • Why write about Project Management?
  • Where is the most significant difficulty in writing?
  • Is it easy to publish a Project Management book?
  • What is your preference: self-publishing or editorial?

These questions were answered by all the authors in sequential order. Those questions were the base to start the colloquium moderated by Luis Reyes Plasencia of the PMI Madrid Chapter.

The authors who participated were Alfonso Bucero, Antonio Nieto-Rodriguez, Rafael Morales, Hernán D’ Adamo José Miguel Andrinal, and Gary Nelson. Gary connected from New Zealand (at 5:00 am!) to talk about the translation of the first three books of the “Project Adventure Kids” series.
