Hi, I'm Ray Frohnhoefer

I am an international bestselling author, educator, and Managing Partner of PPC Group, LLC.

I have a passion for helping new and aspiring project managers launch their careers.  My recent books, Accidental Project Manager: Zero to Hero in 7 Days, Accidental Agile Project Manager: Zero to Hero in 7 Iterations, and Risk Assessment Framework: Successfully Navigating Uncertainty, help project managers quickly learn the essential skills they need to start or refresh their careers.

I'm an international program management consultant, speaker, and educator with 35 years of experience managing projects, programs, and portfolios in multiple industries.

For the last 17 years, I've been teaching, training, and mentoring project management students from around the world via online and in-class courses. I work with educational institutions such as UC San Diego Extension and California Southern University.  Recent corporate clients have included Breg, Cymer, San Diego County Water Authority, and the US Navy.

My personal mission is to help individuals and organizations improve their practices of project, program, and portfolio management and many of my educational and consulting engagements focus on accidental, new, and aspiring project managers.

My strengths include training, development of innovative frameworks and methodologies, conflict resolution, maturity assessment, and strategic planning.

I hope you will join me soon in an online learning experience.  More courses, books, and other offerings will be coming soon.
