You are a competent manager who are finding yourself in the position of managing projects. Being a professional person who is motivated to be successful, you need guidance on how to become a successful project manager fast!

  • What are the typical roles and responsibilities and who is accountable for which deliverable?
  • What are the best tools to use?

From the desk of Linky Van Der Merwe, Owner of Virtual Project Consulting, PMP, Program Manager, Trainer, Consultant and Mentor to new project managers

It isn't always easy.

You’ll find that the learning curve is steep when you’re trying to become effective as a project manager through trial and error. You can make a lot of mistakes and waste time and money.

I understand that, but it can be fixed!

It can be fast tracked from being an inexperienced project manager to being effective and confident enough to managing projects successfully.

I’m living proof of that. I went from total newbie in 1999 to becoming a professional project manager (PMP Certified) in 2004, to working as a Project Management Consultant at Microsoft Consulting Services from 2007 for 6 years where I honed my PM skills based on a PM best practice framework.

So believe me when I say I know what it’s like to be an Accidental Project Manager.

Now you too can learn these growth strategies, tactics and tools, without all the trial and error…
