Bill Bott uses a team approach to tackle organizational challenges, such as strategic planning, process improvement, project management, customer satisfaction, and problem solving. He uses the same tools developed by leading private sector companies to facilitate change from within the organization. Bill's specialty is in helping to make elements of square pegs fit into the round holes that make up the work we do.

Bill is best known for his role in consolidating the IT functions and staff in the state of Missouri, which saved the state over half a billion dollars in real costs in less than 10 years. For this, Bill was named a GOVERNING Public Official of the Year in 2007, and in 2008 he was recognized as one of Government Technology's Doers, Dreamers, and Drivers. He also received accolades from the American Business Awards for his innovative approach to IT management and was chosen to represent the United States as a young leader by the American Council on Germany.
