I highly recommend the Risk Assessment Framework by Ray W. Frohnhoefer to leaders of every organization, especially those implementing digital transformation."
"This course makes Project Management less intimidating, in fact more inviting, encouraging and friendly and helps set reasonable and realistic expectations for those who find themselves becoming a new or accidental project manager."
"“Being a hero is no accident!” In his latest book, Accidental Agile Project Manager, Ray shares the backstory of Siwan Sero. Each chapter conveys the reality and essence of the “PROJECT” method. She needs to become a hero leading agile projects with the astute advice to “embrace the accident…someone is counting on you.” This book is chock-full of tips, “knowledge nuggets,” and training resources, and belongs on every new agile project manager’s desk."
"This book is a winning combination of valuable learning material combined in an organized and easy to read “story type” narrative. There is an intentional absence of jargon. But an abundance of good guiding principles for the “accidental project manager”. I would have benefited from this book when I started out."
"Highly recommended read, the style and the content are highly readable and should be very relatable for all functional managers being asked to work as Project Managers in addition to their ‘normal work’. This book presents an easily usable framework to help you get results and increase your chances of efficient execution."
"Now that you have read this book, what are you waiting for? Start your P.R.O.J.E.C.T! This book contains best practices and easy-to-read advice that flows really well and applies to both new and expert project managers."
"Thank you! Class was very informative and the instructor was very knowledgeable. Class flowed nicely."
"Every project has risk, so every project manager should know how to deal with it! Risk identification, mitigation, and management are difficult concepts for new (and sometimes even experienced) project managers. In his book Risk Assessment Framework, Ray provides an easy-to-follow framework. Ray also provides the tools necessary to make the project manager successful. It's a 'must have' book for both education and future reference."
"Those of us who actually started as "Accidental Project Managers” (but maybe slow to admit it) would have benefited from this this book when we ourselves made the transition from subject specialist to project manager. Much to be recommended. "
"Ray's done a fantastic and thorough job of addressing the topic of risk management. You'll find the tools outlined in the book to be very helpful in reducing the uncertainty associated with project risk."
"Ray was extremely knowledgeable and presented a great amount of information in a clear and easy-to-understand manner. I learned a lot of things that I will incorporate into my daily work as well as future projects."
"As someone who has been in the project management world my entire career, Ray has done a great job of capturing the importance of Risk Management in the process of executing an effort. With every industry and organization, there will be subtle shifts in the pieces used, but Ray has captured the core elements (like a recipe) that you will need to succeed and minimize the overall risk for any effort."
"Ray Frohnhoefer is part of the international bedrock of project management. With this book's focus on risk management, he helps young project managers bring predictability and order into their projects and get prepared for situations when this is not possible. Seasoned project managers will benefit from a streamlined framework that helps navigate an often-confusing set of tasks, whose mastership can make the difference between success and failure of a project."
"Ray has combined his extensive project management experience and expertise with a bestselling novelist's story-telling style to create a must-read for any accidental or aspiring agile project manager."
"Thanks, Ray, for allowing me to review Accidental Agile Project Manager. Ray, you have done a great job with this book. I like the conversational style you have used in the book to present agile project management's fundamental concepts. It is easy to read and understand. Yes, this is truly meant for accidental agile project managers. Great work!"
