Decision I wish I could do over:

Robert Urwiler, Vail Resorts: At times when I ceded control of significant efforts to third parties, I regretted the outcome. What I've learned is that core functions and complex project execution need direct internal oversight. It's OK to use third parties to augment the team where necessary, but control must stay with people you know and trust.

I hope Mr. Metz doesn't eleminate someone just because they previously or currently work that isn't just like his. You can't determine the cultural match based simply on that.

I like what Mr. Hannah said. Isit really worth it important to become the CIO if it costs you your family?
