Todd Williams' Publications

  • Rescue the Problem Project

    • AMACOM Books
    • February 2011
    Authors: Todd Williams

    Think it can’t happen? Think again. Some two-thirds of all projects—even well-designed initiatives that get off to a flying start—are bound to go over budget, blow their schedules, or otherwise fail to live up to expectations. A whopping 25% will get canceled outright, and you know who will be on the hot seat. Your reputation, your job, your career, and your entire organization could be at risk if a major project fails.

    Don’t let it happen.

    At last you’ve got a real defensive weapon against failure. With nearly 70 real-life examples of project rescue methods in action on the job, Rescue the Problem Project is the book to use before—or while—you’re in full-blown emergency mode. Project recovery expert Todd Williams presents a proven approach to identifying problems and creating and executing a targeted, effective recovery plan.

    Authors: Todd Williams

    Turning vision into profitability takes equal parts of leadership and management. Understanding which parts to use is the challenge. As leaders we set the vision and define the corporate culture. If we do not imbue the qualities that build trust within our company and with our customers, growth will be elusive. Nowhere is this more evident than when your company’s capabilities need to change and you start a corporate wide initiative. In these projects everyone must be aligned, communication and process is critical, yet you need to be innovative and push the envelope.

    Gartner predicted a massive sea change in the world of project management—a change that is forcing project managers into a greater leadership role and requiring them to work closely with senior executives.

    Many project teams are being asked to lead change, not just timelines and milestones. This forces project managers into greater leadership roles where the rewards can be significant.

    David Rogelberg, from Studiob, with the support of AtTask, asked 40 top Project and Portfolio Management (PPM) professionals to share their secrets for strong project leadership. Their insightful answers depict an industry in transition.
