THE SUSAN METROS LECTURES: THE 'NEW I.T. LEADER'  (Academic)

Friday September 28, 2012

1:30PM at Kellogg Center, Room TBD

RSVP at: http://go.cal.msu.edu/metrosit

There is a widening gap between the reality of our existing IT workforces' ability and interest in leadership and the expectation of what comprises a successful, future IT leader. As advances in information technology permeate every sector of the academic community, leading an IT organization demands a new set of talents and competencies.

In the past, technical expertise was the most important qualification for selecting IT leaders. However, higher education institutions today are seeking to attract a new crop of leaders from a diverse array of academic disciplines and corporate sectors. Terms like "super-collaborator," "thought leader," "passionate champion," and "change agent," are infiltrating senior IT leader job descriptions.

The new IT leader must be tactical and strategic, compassionate and shrewd, collaborative and competitive-all within an environment of expanding needs and constrained budgets.
