Course Introduction

Atti Riazi, chief information technology officer for the United Nations, has served as a leader and technologist in the private and corporate sector, including being the CIO and acting general manager at the New York City Housing Authority. Her experience with large organizations makes her the perfect advisor on how to create a fluid dynamic organization ready to deal with transformational change.

In this course, you will learn how change is the number one problem for organizations. You will also learn that success starts with creativity, and with creativity comes chaos and change. Riazi stresses that innovation should come paired with accountability and responsibility for the impact a new product or service has on society and environment. She talks about qualities to look for when hiring a manager—passion and compassion are the most important attributes of a manager and a leader. Riazi explains it is important to know the “what and how” of what you are doing.
