    We're Covering:

    Background as a NASA software engineer to wanting to move to the PHA side.
    Digital transformation is a buzzword, but I want to push back a little bit because everyone said they had a digital transformation plan before Covid and then got blown up in early 2020. Gary Brantley and I laughed that no one had this in their strategic plan coming into 2020. Where is the Atlanta Housing Authority at with its digital transformation journey right now?
    What do you think about innovation and leveraging cutting-edge technology on the PHA side?
    Let’s talk about the narrative with CIOs like yourself who experience from C-Suite that IT is simply a cost center. You had some great points in your last podcast on changing the narrative along with a new mindset & shareholder-like buy-in. Expand upon that for us today. This might be more on the CTO side – but – how can the PHA leverage new analytics about its participants to make better decisions? Is this something you’re thinking about?
    What’s your technology vision for the public housing authority in Atlanta post-Covid?
    Lastly, before we hit the 60 Second “TechTables” segment – what’s the number one problem you seek to solve as the CIO at the Atlanta Housing Authority? 60 Second “TechTables” What do you know now that you wish you had known at the beginning (either personal, business, or blend)? LeBron James or Steph Curry?
    What are your top 3 personal development books you’d recommend right now?

    We're Covering:



    [4:23] Stephanie talks about the success of their Coffee & Conversations program and how that has nurtured relationship building throughout her team of 1,200.
    [7:28] The power of the invitation: how opening up Round Table Conversations by inviting anyone with skills or experience in that area helped leverage expertise they otherwise would not have known about.
    [9:02] Catch them early: using internships at both the high school and college levels to instill the desire to serve in the government
    [9:40] "A career in state government is not something folks necessarily think of all the time. And so we are starting small, but hope to grow" Stephanie Dedmon on utilizing high school internships to expand career possibilities.
    [10:50] Federated vs. Centralized IT models
    [12:26] "We came back with a consolidated model that doesn't repeat the same org chart across all the agencies because some positions are needed when you need them, but they're not needed 365 days a year."
    [13:41] The benefits of consolidation
    [14:50] Tackling budget and its implications

    [23:40] "You need to think much bigger, and you need to come forward with what you need to accelerate... and you need to tell the story about what that gets us."
    [24:36] "the citizen doesn't care which department they have to go to, to do something. They just want to get it done. And as fast as they can, preferably not in a line in person or with a form."
    [30:08] I have a unique appreciation that vendors are needed and can be very helpful, and we need to lean in and leverage those relationships and the capability. I love that relationships are king."
    [30:08] The local cybersecurity grant program in Tennessee
