Decision I wish I could do over:

Galen M. Metz, The Group Health Cooperative Of South Central Wisconsin: While I've had a good track record with people decisions, I would like a "do-over" on one or two hiring decisions. One person quit after a day because of a cultural mismatch. She came from a large, regimented organization and we represented a midsize, nimble, innovative one. She wasn't comfortable in that new environment. Our hiring process is now more extensive, and includes a look at the cultural match.

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?
