Todd C. Williams

For twenty-five years Presidents, V-Level, and C-Level executives of manufacturing and service companies worldwide have asked Mr. Todd C. Williams to help them rescue problem projects, build leading-edge systems, and improve organizational efficiency.  By using a simple four-step process for recovering projects—audit the project, analyze the problems, negotiate a solution, and implement corrective actions—his organization helps clients turn-around troubled projects, prevent recurring failures, and streamline their organizations.

In his book, Rescue the Problem Project: A Complete Guide to Identifying, Preventing, and Recovering from Project Failure, published by the American Management Association (AMACOM Books), he defines a project audit and recovery process for rescuing red projects that focuses on root cause correction and prevention. His experience covers numerous domains inside manufacturing and service industries.  Experience is drawn from working on internal and third-party projects, including integration of manufacturing systems, equipment integration, web-based collaboration tools, thick clients with automated internet update, and large-scale business systems integration.  His cultural experience includes the Pacific Rim, Middle East, and North America, coordinating teams dispersed in as many as five countries, three continents, and countless time zones.

To help ensure that companies have the correct approach to running projects, Mr. Williams teaches basic and advanced project management classes and seminars at Portland State University as well as custom educational packages for corporations. He volunteers on the Heald College Information Technology Advisory Board.

As President of eCameron, Inc. he is recognized an expert in rescuing projects and failure prevention around the globe.  He maintains a blog at http://ecaminc.com/index.php/blog that has been quoted on CIO Update, ZDNet, IT Business Edge, Center for CIO Leadership, CIO Essentials, among others. His diverse set of clients include Applied Materials (formerly Brooks Automation), BEA Systems, Bonneville Power Administration, Daimler Trucks NA (formerly Freightliner),  Hewlett Packard (formerly Digital Equipment Corp.), Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, NASA, Portland General Electric, Providence Healthcare Systems, Standard Insurance, and Tower Semiconductor. Many professional organizations have called on him to educate their members. These include Project Management Institute (PMI) and many of their chapters, American Management Association (AMA), American Production and Inventory Control Society (APICS), Financial Executives Networking Group (FENG), Institute of Management Accounts (IMA), American Society of Quality (ASQ), Society for Information Management (SIM) and numerous others.
