Simple, Systematic Success

Attention business owners, managers, and project teams...

You Don’t Ever Have to Be Blindsided
by Project Risks Again...

Now You Can Stop Blaming Yourself (and Others) for
Project Failures — and Also Gain “20:20 Foresight”

From the desk of: Adele Sommers, Ph.D.

Dear Colleague,

’ll bet you’ve encountered at least ONE of these challenges...

  • Your boss has committed your team to a big, new undertaking; however, your colleagues already feel that it’s way beyond their level of expertise.
  • You’re preparing an estimate for a project with a fixed cost and schedule, but the requirements are so vague and poorly defined that you feel queasy just thinking about how you’ll come up with realistic numbers.
  • Your clients are chomping at the bit to get started on a new effort, but you can already see that their timeline is much too short and there aren’t nearly enough skilled people available to do the job.
  • You’re leading a project that’s ballooning out of control because of “scope creep,” yet no one knows a firm, diplomatic way to say “no” to new feature requests, much less prepare a risk assessment.

And so on... These are just some of the challenges you might have run into. You’re probably wondering, “Isn’t there a systematic way to identify the risks, time, and effort required to complete a project — using techniques everyone can agree on and that we can also explain to our stakeholders and managers?”

Thankfully, there is a way to estimate and plan highly successful, low-risk projects... even if you’re brand new to project management!

Introducing the...

“The ‘Project Success Kit’ is invaluable,
even for nonprofits...

Sue Maisner“The information was so easy to understand that anyone — without any experience in project management — could use it. It’s very clear, readable, usable, and practical. I was inspired to use some of it when dealing with some of my recent Women’s Community Center projects.

“I found the worksheets for breaking risks into steps the most helpful. The three-fold process was clear: First identify all potential risks, then evaluate each one individually, and then compare them objectively based on numerical scores.

“The examples were also clear and informative. It was useful to have a personal example (a home remodeling project), making it less abstract for people new to this process. The writing style makes the information accessible to the novice or experienced planner.”

“Adele, your ‘Project Success Kit’
helped me think beyond my typical role in
managing risk...

Joe Risser“You’ve introduced a project and process perspective that is often missing from risk management. For example, the Guide to Painless Project Planning appendix and related planning checklist are particularly helpful in that regard.

“The Tips for Capturing Lessons Learned worksheet is also a great tool for better anticipating and preventing problems before they arise. For example, by determining the kinds of risks that might surface based on what has already occurred in the past, we can begin to move away from the reactive — and often expensive — mode in which we tend to operate.

“I thought both the basic and advanced versions of the Assessing and Mitigating Risks worksheets presented a simple, clear, and valuable method for identifying and analyzing risks.

I particularly liked the advanced worksheets you’ve included because they are a bit more comprehensive. They manage to incorporate even more relevant factors, but do it in a very straightforward way. And regardless of how you end up scoring a particular risk, the fact that you’re looking at it via a process makes all the difference in the world.

“Your easy-to-use template for producing a Risk Management Plan provides what’s often absent from risk management — documentation. When it’s missing, justifying later why a particular decision was made or what we did to manage a certain risk can be difficult to impossible. Of course, no one ever wants to see the worst-case scenario come to pass. But without the documentation, we can’t answer that burning question: ‘What happened?’

“Thanks for providing a very useful tool kit, Adele.”

— Joseph C. Risser, CPCU (Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter), ARMP (Associate of Risk Management, Public Entities); and Principal Consultant, Risk Management Design

“Bravo, Adele!!!
I enjoyed every moment of reviewing your
‘Project Success Kit’...

Jean Harrison“I sure wish that I had had something like this when I started managing projects! It would have been a HUGE time and money saver for me to know this stuff up-front rather than having to learn from my mistakes.

“Among the things I found most valuable were the ‘Tips for Accurate Project Estimating.’ I also especially like the checklists, templates, and realistic examples, which make it easy to extrapolate quick reference materials for daily use and for inclusion in standard operating procedures, etc.

“I loved the writing style! You made a (quite) possibly dry subject fun to engage in. I especially liked how you discussed each topic in enough depth to allow for understanding, but didn’t go so deep as to cause information overload and possible rejection.

Also, the inclusion of both ‘basic’ and ‘advanced’ checklists is great. The basic version will help folks new to the process avoid overwhelm, while the advanced version allows for growth as people become more comfortable with the processes.

“The teleseminar audio and note-taking guide offer a fun way to actively engage users in their own learning. I really liked this aspect, as it happens to be my primary learning modality.

“Thank you again for the opportunity to review this. I also gained some great reminders along the way!”
