What are the best CIO job interview questions? How did you answer them?

Leadership Describe at a high level what one of the most challenging projects that you led was and what lessons did you take forward from it? - At Netflix we were the first publicly traded company to deploy Workday Financials. My team accomplished this in ~10 months, but it was not without many challenges, including taking 3x the amount of time to close the books the first month after go-live. At the time I didn't fully appreciate direct communication with *all* of the stakeholders in Finance and their respective teams and focused too much on the tactical day-to-day stuff instead of forward-looking strategy.
