Change is coming in the IT shops across government, and because of how IT is integrated into the everyday business life of agencies, change is coming to every Federal employee. Dealing with the change - and smoothing the way for personnel to deal with change - is just as important to the job of the IT leader as actually making the changes.

Finding small successes is one way to facilitate that change. Thomas Boyce is the Chief Technology Officer at the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, and in part one of a two-part interview, he says those small successes can demonstrate to other employees that the change that's coming can be change for the good. Mr. Boyce also talks about moving some NRC functions to a virtual environment, and how far his agency has ventured into the cloud.
