Start Here – The Project Risk Coach

How You Can Get the Most Benefit from the Project Risk Coach

Welcome to the Project Risk Coach — the home for project managers wanting to turn uncertainty into success.

united_states_flag_map_outline_400_clr_3123The Project Risk Coach is about inspiring, teaching, and supporting project managers (primarily) in the United States to lead projects that not only serve their organizations and make the world a better place — but which allows project managers to provide financially for themselves and their families.

My name is Harry Hall and I started managing projects in 1998. I left a great IT management position in one company to become a project manager in another company. It was a calling for me, one that I’ve never regretted.

Through the years, I’ve had to deal with many of the issues you’ve had to deal with such as sponsor’s unrealistic expectations, poorly defined requirements, and team members who fail to complete their activities.

Here’s something you may not know about me. As a child, I had lots of mishaps with fire. My twin brother and I started a fire in my grandmother’s kitchen playing with kitchen matches. There was something else on fire after the fire department left. I started dealing with risk early in my life. 🙂

A few years ago, I decided to start sharing the things that I’ve discovered through the school of hard knocks. I started blogging to provide:

  • Instruction on how to identify, evaluate, respond to, and control project risks
  • A safe community where project managers can discuss risk-related issues
  • Tips, tools and techniques to help project managers achieve their project goals in less time
  • Courses and materials to help project managers prepare for the PMP and PMI-RMP exams

Here’s What Project Managers Say

A little more about me…

I enjoy teaching, coaching, and helping project managers. But life is more than work for me. When I’m not working, I enjoy taking my wonderful wife on trips, golf, fishing, hunting, gardening, guitar, and teaching others how to speak Southern. I am a Christ follower and I’m actively engaged at Ingleside in Macon, Georgia.

Soli Deo gloria.
