Ensuring a smooth transition between an outgoing and incoming CxO is one of the most complex projects for any organization to take on, but Owens Corning CIO, Steve Zerby, is taking a different approach.
Steve has more than doubled the average CIO tenure during his time at Owens Corning, with the key to his success being his dedication to investing in his team members to ensure that as Owens Corning finds success, so do his people.
Annie Baymiller is one of those people, currently serving as a VP of IT and a Market-Facing Digital Leader for Owens Corning. After a legendary 36-year career as CIO at Owens Corning, Steve is preparing to hand the reins to Annie, so we’ve invited both of them to talk about what it really means to craft a high-quality succession plan and how strong mentorship can make or break any leadership transition.
In this episode, we discuss:
What it means to consider succession as the end of a journey, rather than the beginning of a new oneHow to build a great organizational culture as a data leader to become a great place to workThe importance of matching the actual employee experience to the promised “brochure” experience.Why the greatest technology leaders focus far more on their people than their technology
