Hi.

Writer, classic rock lover, dog rescuer, co-founder of Baseline Consulting, and now Vice President of SAS Best Practices--I speak, blog, and pester my friends about these topics. My current focus is getting IT and business organizations to collaborate more effectively and not kill each other. I also talk and write about big data, why analytics is fundamentally strategic, how to pitch business execs on IT projects, and why not to buy a dog from a pet store.

I’ve lived in London, Paris, and Sydney, but call L.A. home. #weatherwimp. I cultivate an organic vegetable garden and friends with issues. I’ve written three books, co-authored a fourth, and contributed to a bunch more. (I have another one in my head waiting to come out, but it’s crowded in there right now.) I prefer Def Leppard to Bon Jovi, mashed potatoes to brown rice, fly fishing to golf, Pinot Noir to Zinfandel, and nice people to assholes. I have a tattoo. I’m not telling you where. I feel guilty that I go hot and cold on social media, that I don’t spend enough face time with my friends, that my French is rusty, and that I ate that whole bag of Kirkland peanut butter cups in less than a week. I have to live with those things.

The New IT: Why You Need to Read This Book

What keeps CEOs up at night? Is it technology? Probably not. Is it how to shape IT’s role in their companies’ new digital future? That’s a safe bet.

In this video clip, Jill shares the buzz she’s been hearing from CEOs, COOs, and other executives who are invested in IT’s success. She discusses why categorizing IT into behavior archetypes can be a powerful exercise for C-level leaders. She also shares why pressing issues for IT leaders like talent management and getting a seat at the strategic table, can inform  IT’s contribution to the digital future.
