I am a professor at FSA ULaval, Université Laval’s Faculty of Business, department of management. I obtained a Ph.D. in Management in 2015 as part of the joint doctorate program in administration of ESG-UQAM, department of management and technology. My thesis was carried out under the direction of the Professor Danielle Laberge. I also hold an Executive MBA and a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science.
I tought courses in Business Technology Management (BTM) in the Business Administration Bachelor program– BTM concentration. Previously, as a lecturer, I also taught project management, program management evaluation and organizational behavior, mainly at the master’s level, at École de Technologie Supérieure, at ESG-UQAM, and atÉcole nationale d’administration publique.
My research interests focus on better understanding the complex issues and challenges facing projects/programs, particularly for projects that involve technical changes. In this context, I am interested in governance and multidisciplinary coordination and in the project crises. I also have a keen interest in organizational collaboration, IT governance and the dynamic relationship of projects/programsand organizations, in terms of structures, practices and changes. Finally, I am also interested in qualitative research methods, particularly in project management.
Finally, I also have solid expertise as a practitioner in management (IT and IS). I held positions as director in management consulting and in programs and projects, and as IT manager in various industries. I specialized in project/program and operations turnaround in medium and large organizations in various countries. It should be noted that some of my mandates also included the replacement of burnout managers.
