Navigating a successful transition in IT leadership is critical for an institution and those directly involved. In order to effectively lead and partner across the institution and transform the IT organization, how one approaches the change is particularly important. This session will be an engaging interactive discussion that focuses on insights from “both sides of the desk” – sharing perspectives of a leader new to an institution and one of their inherited direct reports – following the real-world experiences that came about through one institution’s recent period of transition. The focus will be on steps that both sides can take to help make the transition successful.

The session will approach this by looking at four different periods of time (from announcement of the position vacancy to the end of the first year), and the steps that both sides can take to address things like: preparing for the change, learning about the institution and new leadership, setting expectations, approaching things with open eyes and mind, addressing personnel decisions and organizational changes, IT and Institution Culture, IT Strategy, challenges / opportunities and other aspects of the change.
