Project Managers

José Ângelo da Costa Pinto

Lisboa, Portugal "Ricardo is the ideal Project Manager. He is organized, disciplined, methodological, has a deep knowledge of Project, Portfolio and Program management theories and practices. He has also a great experience, not only as Project Manager but also on the Management of large and big companies. He is also a great strategist: He is able to produce, visualize and maintain a vision of the future and make it real through hard work and ability to communicate. Ricardo is a phenomenal leader. He feels at ease in multimillion dollar boards and he feels at ease with people that are still in the early stages in their professional carrier. And this is done with the same very high empathy, energy and enthusiasm that is even contagious and makes as much more optimists and much more self-confidents. Ricardo is an excellent communicator and a fantastic speaker. I have the privilege of having listened to several of his speeches especially in 2009, as he was the PMI Chair of the Board and they were always very interesting, illuminating and always very welcomed by the public. He was in Portugal as a Key Note Speaker in our conference in 2009 and this was one of the highest points of the event. Portuguese project managers really liked the way he explained what the future of the profession for him was and he truly communicated this vision. Ricardo is the ideal Project Manager, but he is so much more than that. He is a dedicated, result oriented, intelligent, emotional competent and, at the same time, he is an excellent person, with very high ethical and honesty standards and with a passion and love for the profession of Project Management and for the Project Managers. And he can communicate this passion and love to others, improving them and making them also better professionals. One special and necessary word for the 5 Minutes Project Management Podcasts that Ricardo produces every week since 2007. Ricardo can explain the concepts, the tools, the techniques, the methodology and even the environment and ambient that the Project Manager has to deal with in a way that everyone can understand and with a cost (5 minutes) benefit (having a concept, a technique, etcetera explained and understood) ratio for the listener that is really low. It is a privilege to know people like Ricardo."
