Academic IT and “The New Leadership Challenge”

Academic IT and “The New Leadership Challenge”

“Michael Kubit has a terrific article in the latest EDUCAUSE Review on The New Leadership Challenge. Kubit, the Interim COO at Case Western Reserve University, argues that today’s academic information technology leaders need a different set of skills and practices from those traditionally associated with these roles.  Rather than being subject domain experts, today’s academic technology leaders need to develop expertise in communication, collaboration, and mentoring. High levels of social and emotional intelligence, as well as the ability to operate in environments of ambiguity and little information, are the hallmarks of a successful academic IT leader. ”
