Rodney Turner has had great success within the academic field of project management. This issue of IJPM is celebrating his achievements. Rodney has held professorships in different countries (presently at SKEMA Business School, Lille, France and Politecnico di Milano, Italy) and been visiting professor all around the world. He has gotten rewards for his research from both PMI and IPMA. Rodney is the author or editor of eighteen books, (if we have counted it right). We guess more are coming. He also has an impressive list of journal articles and conference papers.
