In one organization that we visited, the CEO was seeking a new person to lead the informatics effort. A major search was conducted, and the person selected was a friend of the CEO. The two people had worked together at another institution. The newly hired leader was a warm and friendly person, but after many months it was clear to the people in his department that he was not capable of creating the type of organization that was needed. Finally, it also became clear to the CEO that the department leader was not going to be successful in the long run. Their personal friendship was an added dilemma within this scenario.
