Cat Herder or Project Manager?

How much are unmanaged risks costing you? How often do you feel like you are herding cats rather than getting actual results? How much time do you spend dealing with issues that seem to come out of nowhere? A lack of fundamental risk management skills may be costing you a great deal.

About Me.

I hear it all the time. "My projects are not aligned with my company's strategic plan. My requirements are ambiguous (and sometimes missing). Our vendors are always late. I'm assigned projects with unrealistic fixed time frames and limited budget. Furthermore, skilled resources are not available for my projects." 

Unmanaged risks lead to troubled projects. The Project Risk Coach teaches project managers how to identify, analyze, and manage risks that result in thriving projects and a vibrant career.

I am certified as a PMP, PMI-RMP, and ARM-E meaning I have lots of knowledge in project management and risk management. I have managed projects for more than 20 years. I’ve also served on the teaching faculty for the Georgia Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance Company, IKON Office Solutions, and General Electric.

When I’m not managing projects, analyzing risks, or training project managers, I enjoy traveling with my wife, playing guitar, walking my Yorkshire Terrier (Mr. Hobson), and gardening.
