Leaders define vision. A business turns vision into value. It still takes a team of executives, managers, project managers, and individual contributors to drive the projects that build the capabilities transforming businesses. Ergo, projects are the enablers for turning vision into value.
To achieve this an entire team of people must build value-driven organizations that are seasoned yet adaptive, structured yet agile, pragmatic yet innovative. It is not a simple feat. Four basic tenants allow you to do this:
  • Strategy to meet corporate goals drives all of your work.
  • Work cannot start until the people to complement the strategy are in place.
  • Processes need to fit the individual projects (not too lean, not to heavy, and sized for each project).
  • Technology is only a tool to improve efficiency—it is only a means to an end.
To start down this path you must:
  • Print and read your corporate strategy.
  • Map all projects to that strategy.
  • Focus on the top three corporate initiatives.
  • Build a laser focused plan.
These steps provide the core elements to help you build and lead a powerful organization that provides value, accelerates business growth, and is a strategic component of your company.
The Vision to Value keynote shows the importance of:
  • Defining the core businesses activities that support the corporate vision.
  • Building strategy maps to define each business units’ goals.
  • Assembling the right organization with the proper people.
  • Implementing the correct level of process to efficiently monitor and control progress

A strong comprehensive strategic foundation coupled with operational excellence allows companies to build the capabilities to thrive. Todd Williams’ goal is to improve how companies implement their strategic plans—from definition to ensuring the proper people are in place. His passion is removing corporate roadblocks and bridging the gaps from vision to profitability. Experience in business and technology uniquely qualify him to help define and implement the best operational structures based on the company’s goals. Utilizing twenty-five years of experience he helps companies ranging from start-ups to multi-billion dollar corporations achieve their goals. Qualifications in executive consulting, project rescue, failure prevention, and engaging people in the solution, allow him to help you bring strategy to life.

By understanding the reasons for failure, organizations can become resistant to it. His team at eCameron, whose mantra is “Strategy, People, Process, and then Technology,” specializes in rescuing projects and helping organizations drive business value from their strategy.

As an expert witness, Mr Williams has used his skills to assist companies that have fallen prey to unqualified third party integrators that were not focused on the correct methodology or delivering an end result that provided a useable solution.

In his book, Rescue the Problem Project: A Complete Guide to Identifying, Preventing, and Recovering from Project Failure (AMACOM), he defines a project audit and recovery process for rescuing red projects that focuses on root cause correction and prevention. He is also a writer for The CEO Magazine, American Management Association, his own Back From Red blog, and contributes to numerous other publications, including Fortune/CNN Money, CIO Update, ZDNet, Enterprising CIO, and IT Business Edge.
