Who is this course for?

Before I tell you about this course, let's talk about who this is really for. You have a project or program that is troubled–it's over budget, behind schedule, and/or the project is not delivering what was promised. Everyone is working hard, but the project team is not making the necessary progress. The project needs a reboot. You are ready to assess the project to determine whether to recover the project. And if the decision is to recover, you want to deliver great value in the recovery project!

Project Risk Coach Harry Hall, PMP, PMI-RMP, ARM-E

Hi, I'm Harry Hall, the Project Risk Coach. Early in my project management career, I lacked the confidence and know-how to manage projects successfully. And much of my struggle was due to poor risk management. Fast forward past hundreds of projects and lessons learned, and you would see my path to becoming a successful project manager, program manager, and enterprise risk manager. I create project management courses to give you practical, actionable strategies, helping you reach more of your true potential. If you are an aspiring project manager or one in the making, looking for ways to add value to your organization and advance your career, you are definitely in the right place!
