By understanding the reasons for failure, organizations can become resistant to it. His mantra is “Strategy, People, Process, and then Technology” and he 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.

He has published two books: 

Filling Execution Gaps: How Executives And Project Managers Turn Corporate Strategy Into Successful Projects (De|G Press, 2017) on filling the six gaps that are at the root of organization and project failure. 

Rescue the Problem Project: A Complete Guide to Identifying, Preventing, and Recovering from Project Failure (HarperCollins, 2011), defines a project audit and recovery process for rescuing red projects that focuses on root cause correction and prevention.

He is a professional member of the Association for Corporate Growth (ACG), Project Management Institute, and the Society for Information Management (SIM). He has been chosen to speak to numerous companies and professional organizations, including NASA, BEA Systems, Houghton-Mifflin-Harcourt, Portland General Electric, and Bonneville Power Administration.
