How is Barton doing after 3 months as CIO? What is your assessment of his
My classmate's answer
Barton is doing better than I had originally expected him to do now that it has
been 3 months. Barton has been getting a lot of praise for his goal setting and
attempted restructure of the IT project process. The mishap with the potential
security reach does ultimately fall under Barton's responsibilities', but
Barton has not had enough time to implement John Cho's proposed security loop
hole closure project. The call center going down is obviously not desirable, but
mistakes do happen. In time, Barton can implement procedures to reduce the
amount of server shutdowns. This one event could have been a lot worse and as I
read further, it may turn out that customer data was stolen. However, Barton had
very little time in his new position to prevent something like this from
happening. The call center shutdown was a result or lack there of from the
previous CIO. Aside from the call center shutdown, Barton's performance has been
excellent. He is showing innovative ideas through drive and taking the
initiatives. He looked for input regarding the IT budget from multiple people,
including his girlfriend and then made a final decision when he presented it at
the directors meeting. Barton will likely continue his progress towards a more
involved and integrated IT department. Barton wants and will continue to do what
Davies couldn't, take control and drive the important IT initiatives, even when
there is no direct customer benefit. The benefits may be to close security flaws
or loopholes that will prevent future mishaps.
