Podcast Episode 11 – Ron Carter on Being a CIO

Ron CarterThis week’s podcast was pretty fun. I interviewed someone that I know very well, someone who has taught me more about business and the business of software than any other person, Mr. Ron Carter. Ron is a CIO of a healthcare services company and held many roles in the past: consultant with major firms, developer, DBA, and architect, among others.

Ron has a track record of successfully delivering product after product, across many verticals in both the public and private sectors, for a tech industry where the failure of large product projects has become a punchline. Needless to say, Ron has a wealth of experience to share and I’m excited to have him on the show.

We talk about what it takes to be a CIO of an organization. Looking forward as a career path, we cover the role of CIO and the skills and knowledge that developers would need to reach the role. Other topics include team building, building trust, advice for new CIOs, and remote work.

It was a great interview, definitely give it a listen!
