There But For The Grace Of G-d Go Us!
[The original version of this post was published here in January, 2012, but a call I did last night with a magazine editor reminded me that we must emphasize just how important it is to start any HR technology project with a well-grounded strategy. [...]
Trumpie And Me!
I’ve just reread my observations from last year’s conference, and you should too. If I say so myself, it’s a pretty accurate portrayal of what was happening then, much of which is still happening but which is much farther along, at least in some (but by no means all) vendor products and [...]
[I posted the original version of this on 9-12-2011, just in time for last year's HR Technology Conference.

One of the great debates in HR circles is over what is strategic and what is merely administrative with respect to human resource management (HRM) processes.

If you feel like you’ve been stranded along the way or that we’ve (or you’ve) been off on various scenic detours, my apologies for not providing the final installment of our Yellow Brick Road travelogue as quickly as I had hoped. Life just keeps happening; we keep up as best we can. And if you’re just [...]
