Back in 2004 I was a 3rd year student in the Engineering College, when I first started to get excited with "Planning", I tried to find a book or a course to give me the kind of comprehensive knowledge about it. As a beginner, I took Primavera P3 course, at that time and stage of my life that was pretty great start. soon after that when I started reading about planning, I realized that entering any new field though it processing software is not a privilege as it make you enslaved by a stupid machine.

Not having found any course, that gives an integrated and comprehensive planning knowledge, I decided to contribute by giving this effort out for all of you.

BSc in Civil Engineering, PMP, PMI-SP, MBA Student

Two years before graduating, I got attached and attracted to Project Management and Planning. I wasted No time and started the project management diploma in the American University in Cairo, all my readings, my studies and professional experience were in the same topic.

I earned my PMI-PMP and SP in 2011/2012 and till the moment I'm still trying to develop. I started my MBA journey and I'm planning to finish it before 2019.

I've been working as a planner since graduation and now I'm a planning manager in a construction company in Egypt.
