Part I of today’s episode we cover:

  • Mark's trip to Barcelona with a small group of CIOs pre-Covid -what he learned and how that trip is shaping his long-term vision for what a smart city should look like in Philadelphia.
  • We talk about the CIO being a policy leader, and how the government would run without CIOs (hint it wouldn't).
  • We talk about Gary Brantley's book (the ex-CIO for the City of Atlanta) - The Art of Organizational Transformation. I really like the book because it encapsulates the people's side of the equation in our digital world. We dive into the importance of transforming people before technology.
