"In his book, Know How, management guru Ram Charan wrote, "When you are precise in your observations and take the time to connect multiple points of information, you begin to zero in on the real stuff." Charan's comment could be cross-stitched on a pillowcase in the office of James H. Dallas. Dallas, the recently-retired senior vice president of quality, operations, and IT at Medtronic, has used keen observations and connections as the basis for his successes across multiple IT leadership roles."

"I wish James Dallas was the leader of my organization when I started leading analytics initiatives in IT years ago. He would have been a great coach and mentor – to help me learn the things I believe today about the roles of technology and culture change in this space, instead of me having to learn the hard way."

"If you're going to participate in a corporate Webcast series, find someone as honest and engaging as James Dallas to film it with you. Dallas, the former CIO of Medtronic, is not only interesting, he also knows a thing or two about implementing advanced analytics projects."

"Thank you for doing an incredible job yesterday (Technology, Leadership, & Gender Parity POWER program presented by Women of AT&T)! You were simply amazing! Based on the overwhelmingly positive feedback we continue to receive about the event and you specifically, others absolutely agree with me. I am grateful for the opportunity to reconnect with you.

Your candor, your insights & widow; your sheer presence made all the difference in the world."
