Manual de estrategia de desarrollo de ciudades intermedias (2016)

This is my most recent book and I hope it wll help managers in most intermediate cities and territories in defining and reaching a better future for their fellow citizens. A book where, as a result of my experiences, I structure all the involved concepts and I describe the methodology in order to put it all in the hands of as many local and regional development agents as possible. As its title shows, it’s a handbook wth the purpose of walking with those willing to develop a strategy in their homelands serving them as a reference book along all the process.

The book is endorsed by Paco Alburquerque who made me the honor to write the introduction. Download the book (in spanish)
