 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
Having a degree in Social Communication and Master in Business Communication my interest has always
relayed in integrating the power of the communication in our daily lives, from a social and managerial
perspective. As such, as researcher my concerns are related to develop and understanding the role of
narratives, conversations, rhetoric, discourse and other social activities in the development of the
management practices and its performance in different types of organizations.
I hold a doctoral degree in organization and business management, and my doctoral research was
framed in the subject of strategy as practice in the Spanish Higher Education Institutions, which
analysis focused upon the narrative of academic managers regarding the strengthens and weakness
experienced in strategy making.
Thereupon my interests are related to the field of university management and governance, management
tools, strategy implementation, management control, strategy as practice, narrative and discourse
theory and methods, conversational capital, qualitative methodologies, innovation, modernization and
internationalization strategies and policies.
