Beth M. Jacob, 2012 Honoree

Executive vice president and CIO
Target Corp.
New titles added to your IT organization?
In Minneapolis, we have five distinct job families: business analysts, process analysts, project managers, engineers and architects. We've added a centralized architecture team that has built a long-range plan to support Target's future growth. In Bangalore, we've added project managers and introduced a testing analyst job family.
How are you building an IT department for the next 10 years?
I've challenged my team to stay focused on a long-term vision while delivering on the current agenda and key initiatives. We're researching tomorrow's big ideas for Target and determining how the IT group will help drive those innovations. We've developed a multiyear roadmap, and we're keeping the headlights on bright.
