Strategic Business Management skills

Specializing in implementing innovative global initiatives, capital projects and product development, Ricardo has directed dozens of projects across industries and continents, managing more than $20 billion in global initiatives over the past 25 years.

He has written 15 books on project management, risk and crisis management, and transformation, which have been translated into six languages and sold more than half a million copies.
His influence on the sector was affirmed when he became the first Latin American to be elected Chairman of the Project Management Institute. Ricardo directs the Brightline Initiative, a Project Management Institute think tank bringing together leading organizations into a coalition dedicated to helping executives bridge the expensive, unproductive gap between strategic design and delivery.
