Submitted by: Matt Howell NTEN Member badge | CCO


Congratulations – you’re the new IT director!

But after a look around, you’re not sure what you’ve gotten yourself into. Security, training, data, and systems all need attention RIGHT NOW. Where do you start?

Matt Howell, Director of IS/IT for the Coalition for Christian Outreach, faced this situation in his organization. Charged with adopting a new strategic plan and putting some fences around the ecosystem, he started with an honest evaluation of what he could and couldn’t do himself – and used his experience as a facilitator to make process improvements and build legitimacy among the staff. Matt will share his approach and useful tips for getting your arms around it all.
