We have all been there. Kicking off well-deserved projects with much fanfare, only later to see them never achieving their full potential. There is a solution to this problem and Step One is to read this book! --Steve Porter, Vice President & CFO, Columbia Cascade Company
Todd Williams knows a lot about getting failing projects back on track. His Filling Execution Gaps provides a thorough roadmap for initiating projects well and ensuring their progress toward successful completion. The focus of the book on organizational factors makes it a good reference for leaders at all levels, particularly at the upper levels where actions and decisions have such a significant impact--for better or for worse--on project outcomes. --Tom Kendrick, Program Director, Project Management Curriculum, UC Berkeley Extension

"I expected good, but this is great." ~Janet Pirus Phelps, Former CFO Papa Murphy's Pizza
- Absence of common understanding.
- Disengaged executive sponsors
- Misalignment with goals
- Poor change management
- Ineffective governance
- Lackluster leadership.
Filling Execution Gaps addresses the sources of these gaps, and how to fill them.Without any one of these important functions projects fail. Without change management,adoption suffers. Without common understanding, there is confusion. Without goals,business units, and capabilities aligned, execution falters. Without executive sponsorship,decisions languish. Too little governance allows bad things to happen, while too much governance creates overburdening bureaucracy. Without leadership at all levels of the organization, people are directionless.
Using decades of experience, years of research, and interviews with hundreds of business leaders, Todd Williams illustrates how to fill these gaps, meet corporate goals, and increase value.
