In this week's episode, Ricardo talks about the potential applications of artificial intelligence in projects and compares the different impacts and implementation complexity of each of them. He comments that a project that is self-managed in all dimensions by Artificial Intelligence will have a tremendous impact on both the people involved in the project and the project itself.
In this week's episode, Ricardo talks about "Zoom In" and "Zoom Out" in projects, that is, how different perspectives on a problem can dramatically change our ability to solve it. Making an analogy with a photo, when we use Zoom in, we can see in more detail a small part of that photo. This Zoom In helps us understand "surgically" when in a crisis scenario.

In this week's episode, Ricardo addresses the pitfalls of the "easy" route to certification. He explains that we often want to find a shortcut to achieving our goals, such as getting a professional certification. However, the certification may apply to your CV or LinkedIn profile. Now, if it is not accompanied by understanding, it is worth little and survives even less.
In this week's episode, Ricardo talks about Forensic Planning, explaining that this is an area of Project Management widely used for claims, litigation, and lawsuits. Often in capital projects or large projects, delays and other types of disruption happen when parties disagree on which side is responsible. This type of work attempts to assess and support the parties in the solution and identify the root cause of the problem.
In this week's episode, Ricardo talks about the three central values that project management brings to the organization that you could talk about in a brief speech in an Elevator Pitch. The first: Project management is one of the most powerful tools to organize your workflow and prevent chaos from setting in. Regardless of the approach used, project management will define the criteria that will manage the flow of work within the organization.
In this week's episode, Ricardo talks about the latest news published in the press about the streaming service Netflix, which, upon announcing the first reduction in the number of subscribers to the platform in the last ten years, suffered a devastating drop in the value of its shares. Netflix's value dropped from more than 300 billion dollars at the end of 2020 to 89 billion after the announcement.
In this week's episode, Ricardo talks about customizing methods and approaches in project management. He explains that we insist on finding a solution that solves all the problems in the project, but in reality, there is no "One size fits all." No methodology or approach is universally perfect for all scenarios, and the nature of the project and the very definition presuppose something unique.
In this week's episode, Ricardo talks about the Round-Robin Brainstorming technique. Ricardo explains that with this technique, everyone participates by analyzing, confirming, and questioning the other participants, and he makes an analogy between a football championship, where all teams play each other.
