What new organizational models have you seen or used at your organization?

Top Answer : I think there used to be this traditional model of similar organizations in IT, where there was an application side, and then an ops or infrastructure side. Now, there's a set of tools like BI analytics and all these workplace and employee experience tools that have driven new organizational models in which somebody higher up in the organization is owning some of these things, as opposed to it being buried in one side or the other. In tech, what used to be IT is being put under product leadership and product engineering. Because there's this idea that since they build great products and platforms, they could do this better or more efficiently/effectively.

What are your thoughts on SaaS management platforms (SMP)?

Has the shift to a hybrid work environment caused changes in your organizational structure?

Top Answer : I wouldn't say we've made drastically different changes to the organizational structure. What we've tried to do is hire in some more modern skill sets or people that have taken on some of the bigger data initiatives that have a machine learning or AI background from other companies that they've been with. We've taken that model of trying to up-skill our workforce from that standpoint. There's a bit of the whole hybrid work-from-anywhere benefit we're getting by having a broader talent pool that we can tap. But other than that, there's not a lot of structure or design changes at this point.

Who was your best early employee when you were setting up your IT org? In what order did you hire and why?

Top Answer : My best employee when setting up an IT Org was my IT OPs Manager. Former Marine who I could trust to take care of the operational processes and procedures. While he was doing that, I could focus on hiring the rest of the crew. Started with filling Ops, then I focused on the rest of my reports.

What org structure changes do CIOs need to make to keep up with an evolving technology landscape?

Top Answer : In my career, I have been  through many organizational structure changes. It seems every new leader wants to re-organize the IT team upon becoming the CIO. It is true that organizational structure improves operational efficiency by providing clarity to employees. But the main reason for restructuring a business, or a team, is to execute a new strategy, not necessarily to respond to a changing technology landscape. An evolving technology landscape is a by-product of change. An organization needs an environment conducive to change in order to be competitive.  So, crafting an effective strategy to respond to change may be the most effective way to respond to an evolving technology landscape.

Should the CIO/CTO report to the CFO?

Top Answer : I think a lot of technology projects are now being driven out of the CFO’s office, so how do we decouple? CFOs are focused on the spend piece. That's a success metric for them: Can we deliver this project on time, on budget, etc. Alignment with the rest of the business isn’t at the actual core of their success metrics.
