Case Study: Cover Oregon, Oregon State & Oracle

This is one of two Case Studies on recent government project failures that I was asked to review. I am providing this assessment as a public service. The other assessment is on the Massachusetts Division of Unemployment Assistance.


In order to comply with the Affordable Care Act, the State of Oregon made the decision to build its own Health Insurance Exchange (ORHIX). An online portal to allow applicants was supposed to go live October 1, 2013. As of March 30, 2014 the site was not functional and all ORHIX applications must be processed from paper applications.

Aligning Projects with Strategic GoalsCompanies make goals to improve their products, services, and profitability. When they fail to make those goals, customers, executives, and shareholders are unhappy… sometimes very unhappy. The key to achieving your company’s goals is being able to distill them into initiatives and decompose the initiatives into successfully executed projects. eCameron helps you create an organization that is strategically focused by helping you develop a culture and process infrastructure that keeps initiatives and projects aligned with the company’s goals. In other words, we create initiative ready companies—companies that can define and implement their goals. By focusing at the initiative level, you ensure that everyone in your organization is working on achieving your corporate goals.

Rescue the Problem Project Book Cover

Rescue the Problem Project

A Complete Guide to Identifying, Preventing, and Recovering from Project Failure

by Todd C. Williams

ISBN: 9780814416822

Todd's first book delivers twenty-five years of project rescue experience. Unlike other books on the subject, Rescue the Problem Project focuses on the process to rescue the project. This is the critical few weeks that transform a failing project to a successful project. Other processes blindly layer processes on top of a project without finding the cause of the failure. Rescue the Problem Project focuses on root cause analysis to determine the source of problems and solve them once and for all.

The book starts by discussing the biggest hurdle in rescuing a project—realization that there is a problem—and proceeds though detailed discussion of the four step process to recover them—audit, analysis, negotiate, and execute. In addition, it includes a complete discussion of four key processes to prevent failure.
