Director of Information Technology Services:
HR tries to make everyone fit into their one-size fits all mold. Otherwise, nice place and people to work with. Fair wage with average benefits and no bonuses. There was an 8 year period without any wage increase starting 2006 with decreases in benefits to hold costs flat.

Director of Information Technology Services in Denver:
"Operational experience and metrics based management."
The blinking lights are outsourcable. Understanding how to provide metrics and add value to the business is critical. Understanding that the telemetry that can be produced for a given business operation is endless but being able to filter out the noise and get down to the actionable intelligence is fundamental. Be a student of the business operations, understand it better than the business owners do and be able to hand them not just data and reports but actionable decision relevant knowledge before they ask makes an IT Director indispensable.

Director of Information Technology Services in Corvallis:
"Know Your Customer."
Get to know your customers. It's all about them. You are a service provider to them and if you're services don't meet their needs, then neither will you.
