ORNL circa 2000

An artists vision for “campus of the future” (Circa 2000)

Director’s Forum_0709 Oak Ridge National Laboratory Managed by UT-Battelle for the Department of Energy Mission: Conduct basic and applied research and development to create scientific knowledge and technological innovations that enable the solution of compelling national problems Science FY08 budget: $1.25B 4,350 staff Energy Other/DOE Capital/Construction Other National Security

ORNL’s Mission Is Scientific Discovery The Stuff of Dreams Limitless clean energy Quantified impacts of atmospheric CO 2 U.S. cellulose based fuel rather than oil Drug delivery systems that release medicine precisely where needed Simulations of fusion reactor Climate code for global, dynamic CO 2 exploration New insights into cellulose-to-ethanol conversion First 3-D simulation of flame including chemistry, temperature, and flow

IT Lesson’s learned Executive support and vision is critical. Adoption is driven by training or comfort with Web2.0 technologies. Build a training program. Pick a unified architecture and stick with it. IT staff will want to debate the technical solution. Don’t. Get a project team that buys into a unified solution and isolate them until the fruits of their work start to be clear to all. Find strong partners. Do it quickly.

ORNL IT Culture in Context

CIO Lessons Learned Be a decision maker Know what decisions require strategic input and own those. Communicate consistently, not constantly. Develop a target architecture and work segments in parallel. Empowering others to own the vision. Work diligently to keep them on that target. Management is not engineering. Keep business performance the priority and do not get caught up in technology for technology sake. Stick to your plan.
