You Can Change Almost Anything in a Project, But You Must Not Change Its Purpose
In this episode, Ricardo emphasizes the need for change in project environments while cautioning against modifying the project's primary purpose or DNA. He underlines that while adapting and evolving is essential, changing fundamental goals can lead to confusion and a lack of focus. Using the example of building a school vs a hospital, he proposes that if the project's purpose changes considerably, it may be more effective to cancel the existing project and begin again. Ricardo highlights the need for clear project objectives to prevent projects from being disjointed and losing their initial intent.
