Famoso Profesor de Gestión de Riesgos Visita Mistura

El Miércoles 7 de septiembre del 2010 se inauguró en Lima, Perú, MISTURA, la feria gastronómica mas grande de Latinoamérica, organizada por Gastón Acurio. El año 2011 se llevará a cabo Mistura entre el 9 y 18 de septiembre.


Visitamos la feria, y nos encontramos con el profesor Leoncio Remet, experto en Gerencia de Riesgos en Proyectos.  Realmente una agradable sorpresa.


El Profesor Remet, que ya pasa los 70 años, y fue uno de los pioneros en el estudio de riesgos en esta parte del mundo, me confesó que había venido a Lima para visitar a unos amigos, y aprovechó la visita para darse un salto por Mistura.

El Profesor Remet, era conocido por que todo lo apuntaba y todo lo calculaba.
Medio en broma y medio en serio le pregunté:
- Profesor, no me diga que para venir a Mistura también seguirá realizando cálculos?

"Bueno, qué crees? ", me respondió, a la vez que sacaba de su bolsillo una pequeña cartilla, del tamaño de medio hoja de papel aproximadamente.

Qué tiene ahí doctor?

He traído mi "Escala de Impactos", te acuerdas que era la Escala de Impactos?.

Bueno, sí, me acuerdo que usted nos comentó en la clase de Gestión de Riesgos, que la escala de impactos, mostraba los diversos impactos posibles que un evento podría causar en cada uno de los objetivos del proyecto.

Pero esto, qué tiene que ver con usted? Pregunté.

Bueno, te cuento que últimamente estoy un poco delicado de salud. No tan mal, pero tengo tres pequeños malestares: el colesterol demasiado alto, un poco de problemas con el azúcar, y también un problema con el ácido úrico. Y me mostró la tablita:

                     I  M  P  A  C  T  O
                Bajo        Medio          Alto
                1            5              10


Colesterol      2           3 a 15      mas de 15     
Azucar          20          20 a 50     mas de 50
Acido Urico     4           5 a 7       mas de 7 


* mg/100 gr de comida

Mi médico me pidió que me cuide, pero como tu sabes que soy un poco maniático para estas cosas, preparé mi tablita.
Bueno doctor, pero aquí estamos para divertirnos, así que no creo que vaya usted a ponerse tan técnico, le comenté.
Bueno, te equivocas muchacho, me respondió.  Precisamente he llegado temprano para hacer una lista de los platos existentes y poder así decidir qué como.

No le creo? Respondí, pero en ese momento el Dr. Remet. se fué directamente a la zona de información.
Pensé que ya no lo iba a ver, cuando en un rato, se apareció con una de esos nuevos aparatos que parecen un block donde se puede escribir, y ví que tenía cargada una hoja de cálculo, y se había dado el trabajo de escribir una lista de platos, ordenados por tipo.

Entrada
Papa a la Huancaína
Ocopa
Ceviche de Lenguado
Ceviche Mixto



Segundo
Ají de Gallina
Chancho al Palo
Mongonguito
Mero a la Plancha



Postre
Picarones
Suspiro a la Limeña
Helado de Capulí




Doctor, y que hará con la lista? Le pregunté.
Ah, me respondió, la idea es ordenar los platos por orden de su importancia en mi salud. Es decir, debo tener cuidado con los platos mas dañinos.
Pero es obvio, le contesté, simplemente, escoge los que le hacen daño.
Sí, pero el daño depende de los tres factores que te mencioné más arriba: colesterol, azúcar, ácido úrico.. ya verás.
Por ejemplo, la papa a la Huancaína, tiene poco colesterol, poca azucar, y nada de ácido úrico. Por lo tanto, reviso mi Escala de Impactos y le asigno unos impactos de 2, 1, y 0, lo que me da un total de 2.
La ocopa en cambio, tiene 5 de colesterol, 5 de azucar, y nada de ácido úrico, lo que me da un total de 10.
Y así sucesivamente.

Helado de Capulí         4    6   0   10

Bueno, verás que hay varios platos que me convienen más que otros, así que ya sé lo que debería comer.
Pero ahora tenemos un problema, y es que hay varios restaurantes con colas inmensas, así que si hay poca cola, le asignaré una alta probabilidad de que me coma un plato, te acuerdas que era conocido por mi buen diente?

Fuimos a dar una vuelta y tomamos nota de los restaurantes, y del tiempo de atención y tamaños de cola y le asisgnamos un valor de probabilidad a cada plato..

Podiamos observar que el estand del suspiro a la Limeña, tenía gente, pero se había organizado tan bien que no había nada de cola. Entonces el tiempo de espera era casi cero (lo cual querría decir que era muy probable que el profesor se inclinara por ese postre).

El profesor tenía unos minutos como para tomar algunas precauciones y comprar algo en la farmacia, así que dijo: voy a multiplicar la probabilidad de que coma el plato, por su impacto, que me mostrará la "importancia" que le debería asignar a dicho plato, con el fin de preparar una "estrategia de respuesta"..

Verás que los platos más peligrosos para mí son:
1. Suspiro a la Limeña (alta azucar y alto colesterol)
2. Ceviche Mixto (alto colesterol y alto ácido úrico)
3. Chancho al Palo (alto colesterol y alto ácido úrico).

Con esta información preparó las siguientes respuestas:
1. Con respecto al Suspiro a la Limeña, podría trabajar en la probabilidad de comerlo, o en el Impacto. Decidió trabajar en la probabilidad, pensando pedir que le sirvieran la mitad de la ración.

2. Con respecto al Ceviche mixto y al Chancho al Palo decidió mandar a comprar una pastilla para el colesterol y otra para el ácido úrico, y tomarlas inmediatamente, atacando las probabilidades. 

3. La respuesta anterior (pastilla contra el ácido úrico), por lo general le producían irritación estomacal (un Riesgo Secundario), por lo que decidió también adquirir una pastilla para la acidez.


Luego me miró y me dijo, ahora sí, disfrutemos de Mistura!!!!!
