Track: High School STEM Competition
Since 2020 there has been a continuous study of Portfolio Management in the Technical High School Course of Electronics in IFSP Sorocaba in the course of Integrated Project. In 2021 the second stage was developed with the participation of Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), that often do not possess the knowledge, the manpower nor the techniques to bring to life their projects. This paper continues the research of 2020, with the lessons learned on that case study cycle presenting new ideas to overcome the difficulties and obstacles noticed by the project teams during that year and by the portfolio management team, with the purpose to increase the overall performance by meeting the NGOs expectations and to achieve better results focusing on solving the 2 biggest issues of 2020 – communication and NGO selection. At the end of the year the objectives were achieved, however new issues arose during the 2021 cycle – both new problems and new variants of existing problems – that were not expected. As a conclusion the 2021 edition showed an increase in performance of the individual projects and the portfolio management.
