About the Book

This one-of-a-kind guide provides project managers, executives, and customers alike with an in-depth start-to-finish process that ensure win-win solutions when things go awry. 

Turnaround specialist Todd Williams has worked with dozens of companies in multiple industries to help them bring projects back from the brink of disaster. Now, in a market full of how-tos on the task of running a project, he shares his wisdom to help you do the same.

In Rescue the Problem Project, you will learn: 

  • techniques for identifying the root causes of problems;
  • steps for putting projects back on track--including auditing the project, analyzing the data,
  • negotiating the solution, and executing a new plan;
  • and guidelines for avoiding problems in the future.

When projects are failing, rather than pointing fingers at the project team or responding emotionally, what is needed is an objective process for accurately assessing the problem and mapping a clear plan of action to fix it. With real-world examples of what works, what doesn’t, and why, Rescue the Problem Project offers the tools you need to ensure your project is one of the select few to experience major success.
