Estimated Reading Time: < 1

What does a Chief Transformation Officer do? This leadership position can take on many forms depending on the institution, but one thing is for sure: it is never strictly about “technology.” In this Top of Mind episode, Kristophyre McCall, chief transformation officer for University of Maryland Global Campus, sits down with us to talk about his experience during his rookie year as UMGC’s first leader in this role. Tune in to hear all about what makes a chief transformation officer successful, and why more colleges and universities are creating this position to drive results aligned with their missions and goals.

Highlights include:

  • What is a chief transformation officer?
  • How is this position a crucial component for technological and overall success on campus?
  • What are tactics implemented by a CTO to form an alliance and consensus?
  • Apply the windshield-rearview analogy to the role of a chief transformation officer.
