Focusing Our Talent For Success

As we fulfill the charge presented by the Legislature and the Governor, it would serve us to consider the counsel of tennis great Billie Jean King – “Pressure is a privilege.”  The challenge we face is the privilege that we have been afforded.  Settling long-standing issues surrounding how the state utilizes technology and positioning the state for transformation is necessary to meet current demands as well as future expectations. 

John Wooden, another high-achiever and one of the great winners in collegiate basketball once quipped “Winning takes talent, to repeat takes character.” 

In order to continue our winning ways the state must combine the talent of its dedicated employees with the vision that defines truly high achieving IT organizations.  By virtue of our talent we are in elite company, but it will take vision, direction, coordination and dedication by all to ensure that we remain among the best.
