About Hasan G. Jaffal

Long experience in the ICT field with extensive experience in project management. I have managed software projects in the private, public and non-profit sectors and have worked on international software projects across a range of industries in Africa and the middle east.

Professional Experience

In my current position as Head of Project Managment Office at ArabiaGIS,
I have had accountability for the design, implementation, and execution of million dollar turnkey projects.

During that time, I have developed a solid reputation for successfully and profitably managing numerous concurrent projects through all project phases from conception through completion within targeted cost, schedule and compliance parameters. Sustaining a high safety performance reputation, maintaining quality standards, and minimizing corporate costs and liability have been a consistent result of my professional commitment.
My extensive experience, first as a software engineer on multiple platforms and domains, then as project manager of software development projects, equipped me with a large arsenal of software development life cycles and approaches and gave me an excellent understanding of software practices and a long experience in assimilating new technologies and developing online business concepts.
I have managed software projects in the private, public and non-profit sectors in Africa and the MENA region and have worked on international software projects across a range of industries including cadaster, urban planning, tourism, violence risk mitigation and elections planning and management.

Volunteering Experience

Driven by the passion to empower civil society organizations in Lebanon,
I volunteer to help several NGOs making use of technology.

I am currently serving as Director of Administration of the Project Management Institute (PMI - Lebanon Chapter) and I am an active member of the project management community. I was the project manager of 2 main internal projects (Chapter 3-years Business Plan Development and Chapter online presence building) and I was member of different committees working on events and participating in international activities.
On the other hand, I volunteer to help several NGOs building their online presence through an initiative i founded called talentmethods.org that helps NGOs make use of technology using open source free tools. I have worked with Green Southerns, Nahnoo, Bahithat, Womena, Special Olyompics Lebanon, Lebanese Physical Handicaped Union, Imam Sadr Foundation and others.
