A VP-Ops’ perspective on executive relationships

The new issue of Discover Performance includes an interview with Laurie Jacobson Jones, a consultant who has been a VP of Operations with Salesforce and PeopleSoft. In that article, she talks about alignment with the business, the power of metrics, and the Ops perspective on agility. Also during our interview, she discussed the importance of key relationships within the IT organization. 

 

“My lens is one of those transformation ops people,” she said, “so you hire me because you want change.” That makes strong relationships with peers and business leaders all the more critical. We talked about how she approached that in her VP-Ops roles.
