It is counter-productive to fight uncertainty, CrowRider is about learning to surf the Edge of Chaos
At CrowRider the focus is on delivering change. This may come in many forms: as an improved skill set, or as an increasingly mature PMO, or even as a corporate cultural shift.
Any shift or change which is meaningful occurs in a context of uncertainty.
Will you thrive and become stronger thanks to this ambiguity? Or is going to become an endless struggle? The choice is yours.

The Secret of Success

You may contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Following are a few examples of how I can help your organization:
Project Lift Off!
Supporting projects at start up. Making sure that all best practices are being taken into consideration at the kick off of key projects
Project Manager Coaching
A great investment in your most promising Project Managers. Both on-site and remote coaching (or a combination of both). Coaching plans are built around the individual(s) to be coached. Improvements are measured as direct impact on the triple constraint (scope, time and cost), and are generally seen very soon after the coaching period is complete.
Move away from Fire Fighting… for good! There is always residual value in a project. If a project is “running down the drain”, the team is de-motivated, and the customer is frustrated, I can help rebuild trust both internally to the team and to the customer, to harvest the residual value, build for the future, and collect the lessons learned!
Running your risk estimation
Running a Risk Estimation Session for a new or an ongoing project This would include the risk estimation session preparation, the facilitation of the session itself, and the first follow up of risk management action points.
Building the Future
At CrowRider, we know well that spending a few days in a training room will not, in itself, make a project manager out of anyone. For this reason, our approach is based on creating a tailored development path rather than single stand-alone sessions, and we pay a lot of attention to post-training session support. We strive to be as flexible as possible in the creation of the learning solutions. For this reason we have create what we call the flexi-modules, which can be combined (also with additional tailor-made modules) in many different ways to create the most accurate fit for YOUR needs.
Why is it called CrowRider?
Crows are amazing birds. They are intelligent, creative, and they are… unpredictable.
Crows however, have in many cultures become connected to a superstition about bad luck. The crow brings bad luck, or the crow’s call “craa” is a bad omen, to the point that in English a flock of crows is called… a murder of crows…. brrr.
Projects are often prey to uncertainty. Risks, both known-unknowns or unknown-unknowns, are a reality that project managers learn to take into account each step of the way. Therefore, the idea of a cowboy harmoniously riding a gigantic crow appealed to us. Riding a crow as a symbol not of oppressing uncertainty, which is an illusion, but of riding with it.
