In this week's episode, Ricardo talks about the book "The Rule is No Rules: Netflix and the Culture of Reinvention", whose subject is the culture of Netflix.

Ricardo explains that he read this book recently, which is based on an interview @reed Hastings gave to @Des Dearlove from @Thinkers50.

Ricardo comments that Netflix breaks the chain of command and control and adopts a policy (or maybe no policy) where employees are free to make decisions by themselves on all sorts of topics, including how their vacation will be or how their travel expenses will be.

He also says that in the interview, Reed said that the only "rule" is to make decisions always considering Netflix's best interest.

Another exciting factor is that people are free to be truthful, even if they disagree with an idea coming from the CEO. And last but not least, Netflix values humility, helping and being helped by colleagues.

Ricardo recommends you read the book and look at the Netflix Culture page at https://jobs.netflix.com/culture.

    The Counterintuitive Nature of Exponential Growth

    6:44

    In this week's episode, Ricardo talks about the exponential growth of problems in the project. He explains with several examples what exponential growth is, such as the behaviour of social networks when a post is shared with ten people and that each one will share with another ten people. So on, the number of views has a massive growth. We often rely on intuition to make a future prediction, imagining linearity. Still, we live in an era of turbulent, dynamic and transformational scenarios where one small problem in your project can trigger another, and you have an avalanche of problems in the end. Trusting your intuition is essential, but it's much better to trust the numbers you're getting on your project. Listen to the #5minpodcast to know more.

    Cadence: The Heartbeat of your Project

    In this week's episode, Ricardo talks about cadence in the project. He explains that cadence dictates the rhythm of project deliveries and gives some examples of cadence, such as the frequency of the heartbeat and the rhythm of a military parade. Ricardo talks about the four types of cadence, which are not necessarily linked to shorter or longer intervals but rather the project's ability to make deliveries that add and produce value for the customer.

    James Webb Telescope Launch: A Live Masterclass of Complexity and Risk Attitude

    6:41

    This week's episode is super special, with Ricardo talking about the launch of the James Webb Telescope, scheduled for December 24th. He explains that the project to build this telescope is extremely complex (we haven't found an even bigger term to describe how complex the project is). And for a project of this size, the level of competence of the professionals involved doesn't matter. Even having the best team in the world, the project is so complicated that anything can happen. The James Webb has a technology that has never been used, such as the five very thin protective layers of insulating material to allow the telescope to operate at 100 degrees Celsius on one side and at -235 degrees Celsius on the other side. Imagine over 300 degrees in less than 50 cm on five sheets so thin they look like hair. The launch of this telescope will be part of our history. For 30 days from the moment it is launched from French Guiana, a series of 50 unfolding processes will begin that will last practically one month until it reaches its endpoint, about 1.5 million km from Earth. The Hubble Telescope has located about 550km from Earth to give you perspective, and the new telescope is 2,700 times farther away. It is a very high-risk project, as it is extremely sensitive equipment with 344 points of failure. If one of them doesn't work, the entire project may not deliver the result, and 25 years of development and more than 10 billion dollars could be lost. Watch the launch on the 24th at 7:20 AM ET, 9:20 AM Brasilia time, 12:20 PM WET at https://rvarg.as/webb Listen to the podcast to learn more about this amazing project.

    To Be or Not to Be Agile: That is the Question

    5:03

    In this week's episode, Ricardo explains the difference between agility and agile methods. He says that if the project uses an agile method, it may not necessarily have agility. And on the other hand, a project that uses the predictive model may have agility. Ricardo comments that, regardless of the method used, it is first necessary to have a critical sense of urgency, agility and adaptability in the organization. Listen to the podcast to learn more.

    Artificial Intelligence in Projects - Part 2/2 - Challenges

    8:28

    In this second episode of the series, Ricardo talks about three challenges to applying Artificial Intelligence in project management and product development in general. The first challenge is regarding the quality of the data that will be used. Ricardo explains that in project management, a clear business rule is not respected, which makes it much more complex to have reliable data for artificial intelligence to cross-reference this data to generate relevant patterns for analysis. The second challenge is to stipulate and predict standards for human behaviour. A simple challenge that a professional has when commuting to work one day can directly impact work and productivity. The third challenge is the ethical aspect. How would artificial intelligence make the decision faced with an ethical dilemma? Listen to the podcast to learn more.

    Artificial Intelligence in Projects - Part 1/2 - Definitions and Uses

    9:39

    In this week and next, Ricardo talks about the uses, benefits and challenges of artificial intelligence applied to the project scenario. He explains that artificial intelligence is a branch of computer science that seeks to develop equipment and software capable of performing tasks that are typically human, giving examples of products that use artificial intelligence to replace and facilitate our work. Ricardo also comments that the great benefit of artificial intelligence in project management is monitoring and identifying patterns. These patterns allow the optimization of administrative tasks, preparation of realistic budget and schedule forecasts, and even suggest specific teams for each type of work.
