Accidental Project Manager

Accidental Project Manager?

Managing or about to manage a project and feeling unprepared?  No training in critical skills?  Manager and peer pressure to “get it done”?  Grab a copy and discover how to succeed with projects and begin a successful career.

When a manager is pressed to find a project manager for an important client, he looks to Rhett Sero, our to-be hero. He introduces Rhett to Heda Heldenmacher, a noted project management consultant. Heda introduces Rhett to the  PROJECT methodology and spends seven days with him to prepare.

Designed to increase success, this book is for accidental and new project managers,  beginning project management learners, and those exploring project management careers or looking for a refresher.  Told in the form of a business fable, concepts  are put in everyday terms and stories make it more memorable.

Everything you need to get started in an easy-to-read book.  Each chapter includes a project management tip, reading selections from the PMBOK® Guide, and additional learning resources. A set of more than a dozen ready-to-use templates is available online.

In his latest book, Accidental Project Manager, Ray shares the story of Rhett Sero and weaves into each chapter the essence of what it’s like to be an accidental project manager.  It’s written with a “quick start” method called “PROJECT” for accidental PMs to practice, learn, and put into immediate action.  A must-read for any new project manager to learn how to move from “Zero to Hero in 7 Days”.
