Hello everybody welcome to the five minutes PM podcast. This podcast is a special podcast. I like to make a Tribute to professor Iliana. Goldratt the physics. There are rarely physicists that pass it away or less. Saturday one of the most revolutionary men in the production field and also the project management field. And he was very polemic and also revolutionary with extremely powerful sentences.
And he broke down all the preconceived good concepts about multitasking and he published an amazing book that was like a revolution in the production engineer, the Cole, and this was the basis of the theory of constraint. And he was very, very famous to break down the current ideas to propose new kinds of looking the work, but he was very famous. Four the sentence and told that common sense is not common at all. And he's also very famous for the complexity concept. And he said the more complex is the problem. The simpler, the solution must be. And this was the bass of all his ideas around TOC our theory of constraints. He said that all organizations work like a Chain and the strength of the organization is equal to this strength or the weakest piece of the chain. And he said that if we translate this concept of the Chain to our day by day our companies, we need to find where are our weaknesses? And we need to submit all of our processes to this constraint. This was the basis of the theory of constraint and translating these to project management. Shield this was the bays of the critical Chain and an extremely revolutionary way of looking in working in a Project environment. Traditionally, we think that we need to do things in parallel, and he said that usually when we start doing mood tasking, we lose our focus and we will suffer what he called. And he created this term, the student's syndrome. What is the student's syndrome is that we will take a look at the task as late as possible. As soon as we see the deadline, this will be the time that we'll be starting working on that task. And he said, what? That, if we remove this mode, tasking the duration of our tests, we will be smaller and we'll keep focus. So we will do more He was also very famous for the sentence, the late tasks, and finishing the project early. This was a very interesting way of looking at the work and He for me since I started up working the first time that I heard about the goal book and they read that and they read that book also the critical Chain. He told us a story in his book, in this story, it's very dance coherent, and it's like a breakthrough. And he was this kind of guy. If you look to the web, now, people from the management field operations unit field, they are may, can also their tributes to Goldratt because I know he was far, one of the most revolutionary is a guy that we saw in the past 50 years and the life took him. The word took him to early 64 years. So it's amazing, but I need to share this for those who are listening to this Podcast who don't know, professor Goldratt Czech on the web. Read that the goal, the book, the goal. If you work in a project management field, understand and learn critical Chain concepts four. Sure. You will recognize him as one of the most charismatic, intelligent, and revolutionary guys that we have had in the past years. So I'd like to make this recognition and I way God bless professor Goldratt. Now it's time to rest in peace. You are not here among us, but for sure your legacy will be forever for us. Thank you very much. And see you next week with another five minutes PM. Podcast.
