CIOs discuss how they nurture IT talent

Dan Muse | March 31, 2015
In the latest installment of CIO Quick Takes, three IT leaders discuss how they nurture tech talent.

"Sometimes, à la sports coach, I try them in different positions. I love it when I find a great role that they did not think of before. I had a few of those and they are very grateful. I ask them to do the same for their direct reports, if they have any, in a pay-it-forward mentality."

Simon Dunning, vice president of enterprise process solutions, Applied Materials:

"We hire people with unique skills and then we manage them through a series of experiences with progressively bigger challenges where they are both held accountable and mentored to be successful.

"Our goal is to grow IT professionals into strategic, business-oriented IT leaders. To do this sometimes requires going outside one's comfort zone to find out what we are truly capable of."
