Sobre o livro

In 2014 I decided to create a collection of technical articles to share the main ideas and studies I have made on the field and keep track of some of my work’s evolution. Now I am releasing the fourth edition, including 10 new articles I published in 2019 and 2020 during my time at Brightline Initiative.

Time flies, and to remember, one of the classical articles was about the new approach to the PMBOK® Guide. For many new project managers, the article may be perceived as an old article. Still, the article’s concepts were a major driving force to the changes introduced in the third edition of the PMBOK® Guide that now shows the data flow diagram in Chapter 3.

Another topic that I cover in several articles is Earned Value Management, the central issue of my master thesis. I also discuss human resource aspects and the Monte Carlo simulation applied to project management.

A few years ago, I started studying Qualitative Risk Analysis, Sustainability in the project environment (that became the topic of my PhD) and Return over Investment of Project Offices and Analytical Hierarchy Process.

One of the most intriguing articles was about Neural Networks. When I presented it in 2015, nobody thought about what would happen with Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. The process I introduced using Microsoft Excel and the Palisade Neural Tools is today present in most cloud-based solutions and, for sure, one of the hot topics for the upcoming future.

Several of the most recent articles cover my work at Brightline Initiative in topics related to strategy implementation. Written in partnership with Edivandro Conforto, former Brightline Initiative Head of Strategic Research, they discuss the key elements to be in place to get things done.

I also published three articles on Blockchain in partnership with Don Tapscott, author of Blockchain Revolution and chairman of the Blockchain Research Institute. These articles were featured at Harvard Business Review and MIT Sloan Management Review.

I hope you enjoy the fourth edition.

Remember that the online version is free and it is available at

For sure, I intend to keep this book updated with new articles in the future.

Enjoy your reading.
