Royal Dutch Shell CIO Alan Matula criticized by insiders

With Brinded now gone, might CIO Alan Matula now come under scrutiny? The parallels are there: years of over-promise/under-delivery, aggressive suppression of bad news, and the intimidation of critics through behaviour bordering on the psychopathic.

With Brinded now gone, might CIO Alan Matula now come under scrutiny ? The parallels are there: years of over-promise/under-delivery, aggressive suppression of bad news, and the intimidation of critics through behaviour bordering on the psychopathic. There’s little doubt that the cost of Matula’s vanity projects is playing a significant role on the demise of Downstream, where businesses like Retail make margin on cans of Coke. It’s sad to see DS businesses being divested, but at least one can share their sense of relief as they leave Shell and start divesting themselves of all this junk. read more

IN RESPONSE TO

“IT OFFSHORING: AFTER THE GOLDRUSH”

Matula’s past is littered with Big Ideas that have never materialized. GSAP is simply the latest. He was the mastermind behind SAP Megacentre which was an attempt to standardize the hardware platform used to run the various SAP systems within Shell. He could not even get Lubricants to use it (they continued to use the Pennzoil / Quaker State platform).

Matula, (shown right) like many other leaders within Shell, hasn’t stayed in the same position very long. He moves on and someone else has to come in and deal with the Big Ideas and Promises that he made. I wouldn’t be surprised to find out he has spent longer in the CIO role than he has in any of his previous assignments. How much longer will he last? read more
