I’m Alan Bergsma, consultant, best selling business author and the founder of ALB Consulting.

I used the formal knowledge of academia, decades of experience and industry best practice tools & techniques to develop the Bullet Dodging Risk Management Framework.

It is the Bullet Dodging Risk Management Framework that we use to help you deliver on time, to budget and to scope. We succeed when YOU succeed.
