Collaborating in a Changing IT Environment
Smith College is in the early stages of a multi-year plan to transform its overall technology. Collaboration is more critical than ever in its changing IT environment, according to Samantha Earp, Vice President for IT and CIO. Earp is also the 2019 Tambellini CIO Award winner. This podcast is a great opportunity to hear her words of wisdom as a CIO and understand her perspective on collaboration. She believes at its core is listening and then taking an institutional stance—how to support the institution’s missions and goals both strategically and operationally.
