Books and Whitepapers
Todd has also written two books and contributed to many others. His latest book is Filling Execution Gaps: How Executives And Project Managers Turn Corporate Strategy Into Successful Projects. It looks at the six gaps present in organizations—missing a common understanding, project misalignment, disengaged sponsors, poor change management, inappropriate governance, and lackluster leadership—that keep projects from running successfully.
His first book is the #1 bestseller in Amazon's project management books, Rescue the Problem Project: A Complete Guide to Identifying, Preventing, and Recovering from Project Failure. As the name implies, this book focuses on rectifying project failure s from the project viewpoint. It shows the effect people have on failure and how to address those issues.
In addition, Todd has contributed to other books. In Gower's Handbook of People in Project Management (2013), he wrote Chapter 2 "Successes and Failures of People in Projects." For Naomi Caieletti's book Transform Your Project Leadership: For Professionals Leading Projects or Company Initiatives (2018), he wrote Chapter 7 "Leaders Listen". And very early in his publishing career, he wrote Chapter 4 "Book Review, The Toyota Way" for the book Toyota, a Saga of Success (2008).
