  2. 2. Peter High President, Metis Strategy, Author, and Speaker Connected Futures Podcast Featuring: Gus Shahin CIO and Senior VP of IT, Flex #ConnectedFutures
  3. 3. “You have an opportunity to meet with a lot of IT executives, and to ensure that as you are collaborating with these companies, learning from them what they're doing well, you are leveraging your team more generally speaking.” - Peter High, President, Metis Strategy, Author, and Speaker #ConnectedFutures
  4. 4. “One thing I've noticed is that the true startups or the innovators, I think, they move a lot faster than the traditional big guys. So we have to move at the pace they do because if we try and slow them down, they’re going to go look for someone else. So it's made us make some changes internally.” - Gus Shahin, CIO and Senior VP of IT, Flex #ConnectedFutures
  5. 5. “With the digital transformation that you and others are overseeing, how do you define success? “ #ConnectedFutures - Peter High, President, Metis Strategy, Author, and Speaker
  6. 6. “A key KPI for us is asset velocity through the entire system. How can we buy product by components, build the products, ship them out the door as quickly as possible in a very effective way so that we don't sit on so much inventory because inventory is cash for us at the end of the day.” #ConnectedFutures - Gus Shahin, CIO and Senior VP of IT, Flex
  7. 7. “What lessons would you draw for others who might wish to follow in your footsteps to be the change agents relative to a digital transformation?” #ConnectedFutures - Peter High, President, Metis Strategy, Author, and Speaker
  8. 8. “Everything is becoming digital. It's all about data; it’s all about how you analyze that data in a very quick and efficient way so you can make decisions that affect your entire company. And if you don't get IT involved right from the beginning, I don’t think you’re going to have a chance to do that.” #ConnectedFutures - Gus Shahin, CIO and Senior VP of IT, Flex
  9. 9. “The CIOs job back in the day was… make sure the networks are up, make sure everybody’s got their laptops, their cell phones, and don't really get involved in the business. But I think that's changing very, very quickly.” #ConnectedFutures - Gus Shahin, CIO and Senior VP of IT, Flex
  10. 10. “One of the elephants in the room when one contemplates digital change is security, and the fact that the complexity of one’s security stance… is only increasing.” #ConnectedFutures - Peter High, President, Metis Strategy, Author, and Speaker
  11. 11. “Security is obviously one of my top priorities as it is probably for every CIO because it's also the board's top priority. So you know, ever since the Home Depots, and the Targets got breached a few years ago, I think it's become a priority for every company out there, at least every CIO I’ve talked to.” #ConnectedFutures - Gus Shahin, CIO and Senior VP of IT, Flex
  12. 12. “It seems like a tremendous advantage that you and your department have at being so customer-centric is the fact that you have access to the most innovative companies in the world innovating with your company.” #ConnectedFutures - Peter High, President, Metis Strategy, Author, and Speaker
  13. 13. “The way we manage that is we have a pretty big IT department that's engrained with our four segments. On their staffs, there are actually IT folks, and they actually report online for the segments. So they're always there at the frontlines.” #ConnectedFutures - Gus Shahin, CIO and Senior VP of IT, Flex
