Project Management Report from Spain


Spanish Project Management Pioneers; PMI Madrid Interim Management Event

Professor Heredia Scasso was one of the fathers of Project Management in Spain. His example is still alive in our memory since 2004, from his papers, articles and especially from his book “Dirección Integrada de Proyecto”.

Mrs. Lourdes remind us that Professor Heredia was the inspiration from AEDIP; and that one of his researches gives the translation to Spanish of the term “project management” as “Dirección Integrada de Proyecto” (DIP). AEDIP adopted that translation on 1999 to distinguish AEDIP as a professional association of project managers in the Construction industry.

Mrs. Lourdes Rodriguez, advanced pupil from Professor Heredia, donated 122 books about Project Management that were part of the personal library from Professor Heredia. Such donation counted with the permission of Mrs. Rosario Ibáñez Palomeque, wife of Mr. Heredia.

The final objective of that donation is to keep that set of books as an AEDIP asset; his disciple Mrs. Rodriguez and his wife Mrs. Ibañez are convinced that it would be the desire of the Professor Rafael Heredia, to allow AEDIP to administrate those books to put them available for the AEDIP entrepreneurs, employees, professionals and students.


Jordi Seguro, AEDIP President, receives the donation of the books from Mrs. Lourdes Rodriguez.
