Forbes CIO-plus Series: Praveen Chopra, Children's Healthcare of Atlanta
As CIO and Chief Supply Chain Officer, Praveen Chopra realized that to succeed in supply chain, succeeding in IT would be a must.
Praveen Chopra worked in supply chain in consulting for Accenture, and at The Home Depot for a number of years before early 2005 when he took over that function for Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, a nearly $2 billion pediatric healthcare group with three hospitals and 17 neighborhood locations in Greater Atlanta. As he recognized that the success of supply chain was increasingly dependent on system integration, data integrity, and other key aspects typically run by the IT department, he determined that tight integration between IT and supply chain was a must. After a series of conversations with the CFO of the company, Chopra took over responsibility of IT as CIO in early 2006 while keeping his supply chain responsibilities. He had a deep foundation in technology dating back to his undergraduate degree in computer science and engineering, but continuing through to his deep collaborations with CIOs over the years. As a result, Chopra was able to transition successfully to the CIO-plus role, and to garner tremendous value at the nexus between IT and supply chain, as he highlights in my interview below.
Let's start with a little history, Praveen. Since 2000, you have been a supply chain executive. How did you find your way into supply chain, and what are the differences between managing the supply chain for a major retailer (The Home Depot) versus a healthcare organization (your current employer, Children's Healthcare of Atlanta)?
