This week Ricardo shares a personal experience where he can see project management happening naturally as part of life. He made lunch at the weekend to celebrate a friend's birthday. Without even realizing it, Ricardo prepared the list of ingredients and made a mental plan of what resources he would need, how long each item would last in the oven, etc. Important to note that lunch was not for two people. It was for more than 20 people. And he did it all himself. Without meaning to or realizing it, he's been practicing the project management skills we always look forward to practicing. And he did it naturally as part of structured thinking. And that's what this episode wants to talk about. You don't need to deploy a nuclear power plant, a gigantic airport, or a digital transformation in the most relevant companies in the world to practice and learn to manage projects. You can do this the next time you think about tidying up your closet, at your next barbecue, your next visit to the farm, or on your vacation. Projects (or whatever name you want to call them) are nothing more than logic and common sense to connect ideas with results. That simple Listen to the podcast to learn more.

Nesta semana Ricardo compartilha uma experiência pessoal onde ele pode ver o gerenciamento de projetos acontecendo de forma natural, como parte da vida. Ele fez no fim de semana um almoço para comemorar o aniversário de um amigo. Sem nem se deparar com o fato, Ricardo preparou a lista de ingredientes, fez todo o plano mentalmente qual recursos iria precisar, quanto tempo cada item iria passar no forno etc. Importante ressaltar que o almoço não era para 2 pessoas. Era para mais de 20 pessoas. E ele fez tudo sozinho. Sem querer ou perceber, ele está praticando as habilidades de projetos que tanto queremos. E ele fez isso naturalmente. Como parte do pensamento estruturado. E é isso que esse episódio quer falar. Você não precisa implantar uma usina nuclear, um aeroporto gigantesco ou uma transformação digital nas empresas mais relevantes do mundo para praticar e aprender a gerenciar projetos. Você pode fazer isso na próxima vez que pensar em arrumar seu armário, no seu próximo churrasco, na sua próxima visita ao seu sítio ou nas suas férias. Projetos (ou qualquer nome que queira chamar), nada mais é do que lógica e bom senso para conectar ideias com resultados. Simples assim! Ouça o #5minpodcast desta semana para saber mais.

This week, Ricardo discusses three prominent businesspeople whose incoherent actions hurt those who had put their faith in their ideas: Elizabeth Homes of Theranos, Sam Bankman-Fried of FTX, and Elon Musk of Twitter. These persons share many characteristics, including a remarkable charm that has garnered them widespread adulation and the impression that they possess superhuman abilities. Yet, the revolutionary language and charisma were eventually called into question, revealing a lack of governance, control systems, and compliance. Ricardo likens these people to the charismatic and self-assured project manager who decides to charge ahead without first doing an in-depth study of the situation, planning, establishing effective governance, or implementing stringent controls. Behind the development of a project, there are people who invest and bet on the results of that project. Charisma and lack of governance will not deliver what is expected; it takes a lot of work, governance, planning, and control. Listen to this week's #5minpodcast to learn more.

This week, Ricardo discusses TRL, or the Technology Readiness Level, a method developed by NASA in the 1970s to ensure the reliability and safety of the technology they used in their projects. In terms of safety, the higher the TRL number, the more developed the technology is. All the things that come at the outset of studying a new technology—empirical research, a scientific concept, an article, an idea, etc.—are related to the first 3 stages. In stages 4, 5, and 6, you work to develop and invest in the new technology, validate it in the lab, and develop prototypes. Risks associated with using this technology, which was once restricted to the scope of research and extremely high to use, have now become real and high. In stages 7, 8, and 9, the prototype is shown off in a working setting. The organization owns both the necessary licenses and a fully functional and certified system. Reaching stage 9 means that the technology is fully developed and ready for widespread use. Today, TRL is an international standard and a useful tool for integrating new technologies into projects.

Nesta semana, Ricardo fala sobre TRL, ou Technology Readiness Level, um método desenvolvido pela NASA na década de 1970 para garantir a confiabilidade e a segurança da tecnologia utilizada em seus projetos. Em termos de segurança, quanto maior o número TRL, mais desenvolvida é a tecnologia. Todas as coisas que surgem no início do estudo de uma nova tecnologia – pesquisa empírica, um conceito científico, um artigo, uma ideia etc. – estão relacionadas aos 3 primeiros estágios. Nos estágios 4, 5 e 6, você trabalha para desenvolver e investir na nova tecnologia, validá-la em laboratório e desenvolver protótipos. Os riscos associados ao uso dessa tecnologia, que antes eram restritos ao escopo da pesquisa e extremamente altos ao uso, agora se tornaram reais e altos. Nos estágios 7, 8 e 9, o protótipo é exibido em um ambiente de trabalho. A organização possui as licenças necessárias e um sistema totalmente funcional e certificado. Atingir o estágio 9 significa que a tecnologia está totalmente desenvolvida e pronta para uso generalizado.

This week, Ricardo discusses the PESTLE technique, which is used to assess the external factors: political, economic, social, technological, legal, and environmental, that may have an impact on a project or business. The outcome of an election, the state of the economy, the degree to which society is enriched or impoverished, the passage of new legislation, the introduction of innovative technologies, and even the perception of your project about the environment can have a significant impact on the project's trajectory. Ricardo demonstrates how he evaluates these scenarios, using post-its and identifying trends from the view of uncertainties.

The Relevance of the Right Project Governance

This week, Ricardo discusses decision-making processes in the context of projects, the "governance" component of the environmental, social, and governance (ESG) acronym. He explains that knowledge of governance, the organizational framework used to oversee projects, is crucial for effective decision-making. This structure and processes are used to make decisions about approving changes and planning the next steps based on project findings. Due to project size and complexity, not all projects require a large, bureaucratic setup to have an adequate level of governance. If the project is small and uses an agile approach, the project board can be smaller and more straightforward, like the SDWT (self-direct work team). On the other hand, a mega project may and probably will require a more intricate decision-making process because what is at risk involves significant investments and usually happen in regulated operations like infrastructure, power generation, and finance. Regardless of the type and size of the project, the board needs to have the autonomy to make the decisions it considers best for the project. If the governance body can not control the project, even its existence becomes pointless. Listen to this week's #5minpodcast to learn more.

Nesta semana, Ricardo discute os processos de tomada de decisão no contexto de projetos, o componente "governança" da sigla ambiental, social e governança (ESG). Ele explica que o conhecimento da governança, a estrutura organizacional usada para supervisionar os projetos, é crucial para a tomada de decisão eficaz. Essa estrutura e processos são usados ​​para tomar decisões sobre aprovação de mudanças e planejamento das próximas etapas com base nos resultados do projeto. Devido ao tamanho e complexidade do projeto, nem todos os projetos exigem uma configuração grande e burocrática para ter um nível adequado de governança. Se o projeto for pequeno e usar uma abordagem ágil, o comitê do projeto pode ser menor e mais direto, como o SDWT (self-direct work team). Por outro lado, um megaprojeto pode e provavelmente exigirá um processo decisório mais intrincado, pois o que está em risco envolve investimentos significativos e geralmente acontece em operações reguladas como infraestrutura, geração de energia e finanças. Independentemente do tipo e tamanho do projeto, o comitê precisa ter autonomia para tomar as decisões que considerar melhores para o projeto. Se o órgão de governança não puder controlar o projeto, até mesmo sua existência se torna inútil. Ouça o #5minpodcast desta semana para saber mais.

Nesta semana, Ricardo fala sobre o FOMO, ou "Fear of missing out (Medo de Perder)", que é a ansiedade que temos quando não nos sentimos incluídos em um determinado cenário, fazendo com que nos sintamos desmotivados e com baixa autoestima. Novas tecnologias, criptomoedas, metaverso e inteligência artificial são apenas alguns exemplos que podem nos fazer sentir desatualizados e trazer a sensação de que estamos ficando para trás. O medo de perder (FOMO) é uma reação normal à percepção de que os outros têm informações que nos faltam. O que não é normal é a intensidade do que estamos enfrentando agora. Vejam especialmente as mídias sociais. É possível que aprendamos sobre uma tecnologia inovadora ou uma nova abordagem de gerenciamento de projetos enquanto trabalhamos no projeto. O desafio é o pensamento de que temos que devemos obrigatoriamente investir em tudo de novo que sai, nos impedindo de focar nos resultados do projeto. Nosso julgamento é prejudicado e, como resultado, fazemos escolhas que podem não ser ótimas. Uma saída pode estar em um outro acrônimo, JOMO, ou “Joy of Missing out (alegria por estar perdendo)” que explica que deixar algo novo passar pode ser bom para o projeto, por mais contraintuitivo que seja. É preciso que nos concentremos no que precisa ser feito, porque se tentarmos sempre usar as melhores tecnologias e métodos, podemos deixar de entregar os resultados básicos esperados. Além de destruir a moral do time, gerar um nível de ansiedade fora do normal e disparar o gatilho do que estamos vendo como a “Grande Renúncia.” Ouça o #5minpodcast desta semana para saber mais.

Why the Fear of Being Left Out (FOMO) Is So Dangerous for You and Your Projects This week, Ricardo talks about FOMO, or "Fear of missing out," which is the anxiety we have when we don't feel included in a specific scenario, causing us to feel unmotivated and have low self-esteem. New technologies, cryptocurrencies, the metaverse, and artificial intelligence are just examples that can make us feel out of date and like we are falling behind. The fear of missing out (FOMO) is a normal reaction to the perception that others have some information, knowledge, or relationship that we lack. What is not normal is the intensity of what we are facing right now. Look especially at social media. We may learn about innovative technology or a new approach to project management as we work on the project. The challenge is the desire we usually have to invest in everything new that comes out, and this behavior prevents us from focusing on project results. Our judgment is impaired, and as a result, we make choices that may not be optimal. One way out might be another acronym, JOMO, or "Joy of Missing out," which explains that letting something new slip by can be suitable for the project, however counterintuitive. We need to focus on what needs to be done. Suppose we always try to use the best technologies and methods. In that case, we can fail to deliver the expected primary results. In addition to destroying team morale, generating an unusual level of anxiety and triggering what we see as the "Great Resignation." Listen to this week's #5minpodcast to learn more.

In this week's episode, Ricardo talks about the flexibility people are looking for today to work from home or in the office. Following the pandemic, the relationship between employers and workers shifted, and employees now demand more freedom in their daily work lives. Having the option to work from wherever you like can help some people strike a better balance between their professional and personal lives, which in turn can boost productivity. To compete for top talent, many modern businesses offer greater workplace freedoms to prospective employees. The project manager must realize what stimulates the team the most and will add more value to the project. Teams working on product development or digital transformation want autonomy, responsibility, and input into the company's larger strategic context. Working from home does not mean that people will work less; committed people will have the same level of dedication, regardless of where they are developing their work. On the same note, and sadly, those who do not want to work will not work regardless if they stay home or wear a suit at the office. Listen to #5minpodcast to understand better.

Ter a opção de trabalhar de onde você quiser pode ajudar algumas pessoas a encontrar um melhor equilíbrio entre suas vidas profissional e pessoal, o que, por sua vez, pode aumentar a produtividade. Para competir pelos melhores talentos, muitas empresas modernas oferecem maiores liberdades para o local de trabalho para funcionários em potencial. O gerente de projetos deve perceber o que mais estimula a equipe e que agregará mais valor ao projeto. As equipes que trabalham no desenvolvimento de produtos ou na transformação digital desejam autonomia, responsabilidade e participação no contexto estratégico mais amplo da empresa. Trabalhar em casa não significa que as pessoas trabalharão menos; pessoas comprometidas terão o mesmo nível de dedicação, independentemente de onde estejam desenvolvendo seu trabalho.

In this week's podcast, Ricardo discusses DAO (short for "Decentralized Autonomous Organizations") Decisions on DAO platforms are made collectively, like in a real-world cooperative, with input from all members. With DAO, says Ricardo, we may not need a project manager, scrum master, or product owner to oversee our projects in the future. Everything would run smoothly thanks to the decisions made by the group working on the project as a whole, like a project board. Likewise, governments could function using DAO without needing a congress, president, or even physical space. The blockchain makes available all records of all votes taken on a given topic. Although DAO helps us make decisions more quickly and efficiently, it is very challenging for them to replace human oversight of factors like employee motivation, stress levels, and team dynamics.

Tudo correria bem graças às decisões tomadas pelo grupo que trabalha no projeto como um todo, como um Project Board. Da mesma forma, os governos poderiam funcionar usando o DAO sem a necessidade de um congresso, presidente ou mesmo um espaço físico. Todas as informações sobre as tomadas de decisões de um determinado assunto, estão publicamente disponíveis através do Blockchain. Embora o DAO nos ajude a tomar decisões com mais rapidez e eficiência, ele não pode substituir a supervisão humana de fatores como motivação dos funcionários, níveis de estresse e dinâmica da equipe.

In this week's episode, Ricardo talks about the relationship between the concepts of BANI and VUCA. The acronym VUCA for "volatile," "uncertainly," "complex," and "ambiguous" has its origins in the American army during the cold war and sought to explain the constant changes and complexity of contemporary entities, which alter our perception of what is right and what is wrong. The acronym BANI is more recent and was created by anthropologist Jamais Cascio in 2018. The term means "brittle," "anxious," "non-linear," and "incomprehensible" and has become very popular with the pandemic. For Ricardo, despite the acronyms BANI and VUCA having different formats and many saying that BANI is an evolution of VUCA, he shows evidence that the two terms reproduce practically in the same way (despite using other names) the functioning of our society marked by instability, transformation, and inability to predict. The instability causes a feeling of uncertainty, out of control, and anxiety in people. Listen to #5minpodcast to understand better.

This week, Ricardo discusses using "Squads" within projects and gives tips on building and sustaining effective teams. The modern use of the term "Squad" in project management can be traced back to a military concept in which a multidisciplinary team acts independently to complete a series of missions. This idea of a cross-functional and autonomous team became the core support of agile models that originated in software development and has since been extended to other types of projects. Currently, you can find Squads in many different delivery methods. Ricardo stresses the importance of teamwork, time-zone, and open lines of communication for the Squad's success.

Essa ideia de uma equipe multifuncional e autônoma tornou-se o suporte central dos modelos ágeis que se originaram no desenvolvimento de software e, desde então, foram estendidos a outros tipos de projetos.

Why Chaotic Systems Matter to My Work

5 Minutes Podcast with Ricardo Vargas

In this week's episode, Ricardo talks about the connection between Chaotic Systems and the behavior of risks in the project. Chaotic systems are highly disordered and unpredictable, where minor changes in initial parameters cause drastic changes in the future. Consider the global shipping crisis. COVID-19 caused some ports worldwide to close during the pandemic, resulting in an insane search for available containers on one side of the globe while thousands of empty containers are filling ports on the other side of the planet. According to some experts, correcting this mismatch can take months, if not years. However, not all chaotic systems are the same. Some chaotic systems just happen, and you have little control over them, such as the weather forecast for the next two or three days. These are chaotic systems of level 1. LLevel 2 systems are the epiphany of chaos. These systems change by the simple fact that you start measuring them. A good example is the stock market. If there were a perfect algorithm that predicted a stock's price would rise tomorrow with 100% certainty, the stock price would not rise tomorrow but today due to increased demand for that stock. Another example we all faced two years ago happened when toilet paper disappeared from the counter of stores in the early days of a pandemic. These events are called a level 2 chaotic system, and no one knows where it began. The more people measure, act or intervene, the more chaotic it becomes... Our challenge today is that everything we do is at level 2 chaos, necessitating a different set of skills and adaptability. Listen to this week's #5minpodcast to learn more.

No episódio desta semana, Ricardo fala sobre a conexão entre os Sistemas Caóticos e o comportamento dos riscos no projeto. Sistemas caóticos são altamente desordenados e imprevisíveis, onde pequenas mudanças em alguns parâmetros iniciais podem causar mudanças radicais no futuro. Vejam a crise do transporte marítimo. O COVID-19 fazendo com que alguns portos do mundo ficassem fechados na pandemia fizeram com que containers faltassem de um lado do planeta e sobrassem do outro. Corrigir essa falta de sintonia pode levar meses e, alguns especialistas até falam em anos. Mas nem todo sistema caótico é igual. Existem os sistemas que são caóticos, mas você tem pouca condição de interferir, como por exemplo o clima daqui a 2 ou 3 dias. Esses são sistemas caóticos do nível 1. Já os sistemas do nível 2 são o ápice do caos. Eles mudam pelo simples fato de você medi-lo. Vejam a bolsa de valores. Se existisse um algoritmo perfeito para prever que o preço de uma ação iria subir amanhã, o evento disso nas pessoas faria com que o preço subisse hoje devido ao excesso de demanda. Vejam o exemplo da demanda por papel higiênico durante os primeiros dias da pandemia. Um sistema caótico de nível 2. E ninguém sabe onde começou. O nosso desafio é que praticamente tudo que fazemos hoje está no nível 2 de caos e isso requer uma habilidade e uma capacidade de adaptação diferente. Escute o #5minpodcast para saber mais.

In the past, countries with weak economies were more likely to experience inflation; however, today, countries with stronger economies, like those in Europe, are experiencing relevant impacts of inflation. The ability to complete projects may be heavily impacted by inflation, which presents a significant issue for project managers. Depending on where the project is, it may even be required to consider if it is feasible to move forward. Regarding this scenario, Ricardo offers three suggestions for risk mitigation that can be applied in the early stages of the project and another three suggestions to be applied in later stages.

In this week's episode, Ricardo addresses the Passion Economy. There is a "passion economy" when you make money doing something you enjoy. The biggest illustration of this notion is the digital influencer, who may share information, expertise, and insights about a topic they find fascinating and monetize the content through a YouTube or TikTok channel, for example. However, the process is not as simple as most people believe. The majority of the "rockstars" of the passion economy represent a minuscule portion of the market. And transforming the passion into results takes time and a lot of effort. As Adam Davidson's book The Passion Economy examines in depth, your efforts to create money from a passion may not always provide the anticipated results.

Spatial Revolution: Architecture and Planning in the Early Soviet Union (Cornell UP, 2022) is the first comparative parallel study of Soviet architecture and planning to create a narrative arc across a vast geography. The narrative binds together three critical industrial-residential projects in Baku, Magnitogorsk, and Kharkiv, built during the first fifteen years of the Soviet project and followed attentively worldwide after the collapse of capitalist markets in 1929. Among the revelations provided by Christina E. Crawford is the degree to which outside experts participated in the construction of the Soviet industrial complex, while facing difficult topographies, near-impossible deadlines, and inchoate theories of socialist space-making. Crawford describes how early Soviet architecture and planning activities were kinetic and negotiated and how questions about the proper distribution of people and industry under socialism were posed and refined through the construction of brick and mortar, steel and concrete projects, living laboratories that tested alternative spatial models. As a result, Spatial Revolution answers important questions of how the first Soviet industrialization drive was a catalyst for construction of thousands of new enterprises on remote sites across the Eurasian continent, an effort that spread to far-flung sites in other socialist states—and capitalist welfare states—for decades to follow.

TL;DR On this episode, we interview Jeff, a moderator from the 86K-member subreddit r/projectmanagement. He shares insights from the community's FAQs, explains why you shouldn't pursue the CAPM, shares his own experiences in project management, and *gasp* is challenged by automation. _______________________ This is an interesting one. We're speaking with one of the moderators of the r/projectmanagement subreddit, Jeff. We're only stating his first name as not to reveal his identity - part of what makes Reddit great is its anonymity. Jeff moderates, and is an active contributor, to one of the largest communities of project managers in the world. With over 86,600 members, r/projectmanagement is full of folks looking for advice from peers. That covers everything from career seekers to people looking for tool tips, to specific asks based on one's industry. The discussion moves into Jeff's background in project management, and his working method. Jeff shares advice to new project managers, and encourages communicating news quickly and early, especially if there are setbacks, and why honesty is the best policy. Jeff shares his trial-by-fire first time as a project manager, on his first project in a different country. Key Takeaways: Jeff “TheWolf1970” became involved in the project management subreddit about nine years ago. It has grown from 40K to 86K members in the past year. The two moderators grow it using Flair topics. “Don't get the CAPM.” Jeff shares templates that he has spent years building and collecting, to help users get started in project management.  His most difficult subreddit question is when people say they want to give up on project management. Jeff encourages people to look at their project baseline to evaluate the status. He also recommends a specific PM book. There is a risk of crashing a project. Fast-tracking a project involves scaling back the delivery. Jeff discusses experience versus knowledge. He describes his project management method. Jeff measures a project's success by holding a retrospective with his client on what went well, and what could be done better.

In this week's episode, Ricardo talks about Project Management in Agribusiness. He explains how we can apply project management in this segment, which is so different for many of us. Ricardo comments that agribusiness is transforming as powerful as the technology area, using digitalization, georeferencing e technology, and project to select crops that will be used in this area. For example, the harvest of an agricultural product can be considered a project, as it is temporary and unique due to environmental, soil, and local conditions. And project management will identify, for example, market, environmental, and price volatility risks that may occur depending on the type of harvest. Agribusiness project management can also be used in logistics to distribute products and grains. Ricardo gives examples of global impact in this logistics, such as the distribution of grains in Ukraine contained in the Odesa port due to the war. Another example is Brazil itself, a significant producer of agricultural products, with a continental dimension where the logistics of getting the products to the port is a great challenge. Ricardo also talks about the agile approaches that are used by businesses that are born around agribusiness. Finally, Ricardo comments on a project for grain flow using the river network, which is a doctoral thesis of a friend in Portugal and a project to support the sustainable planting of olive trees for olive oil in Morocco that was carried out during the period in which he led the project area at UNOPS (United Nations) Listen to this week's #5minpodcast to learn more.

In 2003 Fred Delcomyn imagined his backyard of two and a half acres, farmed for corn and soybeans for generations, restored to tallgrass prairie. Over the next seventeen years, Delcomyn, with help from his friend James L. Ellis scored, seeded, monitored, reseeded, and burned these acres into prairie. In A Backyard Prairie: The Hidden Beauty of Tallgrass and Wildflowers (Southern Illinois UP, 2021), they document their journey and reveal the incredible potential of a backyard to travel back to a time before the wild prairie was put into plow rows. It has been said, “Anyone can love the mountains, but it takes a soul to love the prairie.” This book shows us how. The first book to celebrate a smaller, more private restoration, A Backyard Prairie offers a vivid portrait of what makes a prairie. Delcomyn and Ellis describe selecting and planting seeds, recount the management of a prescribed fire, and capture the prairie's seasonal parades of colorful flowers in concert with an ever-growing variety of animals, from the minute eastern tailed-blue butterfly to the imperious red-winged blackbird and the reclusive coyote. This book offers a unique account of their work and their discovery of a real backyard, an inviting island of grass and flowers uncovered and revealed. We often travel miles and miles to find nature larger than ourselves. In this rich account of small prairie restoration, Delcomyn and Ellis encourage the revival of original prairie in our backyards and the patient, beauty-seeking soul sleeping within ourselves.

Remember That the Law of Diminishing Returns Also Applies to Your Project Management Efforts

In this week's episode, Ricardo talks about the Law of Diminishing Returns applied to the effort we make to manage projects. We often doubt how much management is worth, and we try to simplify management as much as possible to avoid bureaucracy when we spend a lot of time in meetings or filling out documents and templates without reaching any results. Ricardo explains that according to the law of diminishing returns, the project's results will improve with the increase in a management capacity. But we must find an optimal management level that maximizes results, not paper production. We often create a more bureaucratic control process with more effort due to a paranoia we have with risks and a perception that everything needs to be controlled. With this, we reach a point of diminishing returns, where we spend more to have less. Listen to the #5minpodcast to find out more!
