If You Don’t Ask The Right Qs, You Get The Answers You Deserve!

To get maximum value from attending #HRTechConf and/or #HRTechWorld, prepare your questions carefully and gather different points of view on possible answers. Be an investigative journalist in order to get useful answers to your important questions.

Introduction

It’s conference season, and we’d better get our act together if we’re not going to be “Trumped” during […]

Home Remodeling, Moving To SaaS, And Life Lessons

Familiar Vendor Is NO Excuse For Short-Cutting Due Diligence!

In the last year, I’ve relearned a valuable lesson in vendor research, short-listing, evaluation, selection and management, and it’s been a very painful, expensive, and embarrassing lesson for someone who should have known better. Yes, there’s no fool like an old fool, especially when we […]

Reprise: A Great Miracle Happened Here!

Chanukah 2015 HR Tech Wishes For 2016

Take Your Chances, Win Some Gelt

Have you ever played the Chanukah game of spin the dreidel? With or without the modified rules derived from “spin the bottle?” Did you know that the four letters, one on each side of the dreidel, make up a phrase that […]

Prepare Your Questions For #HRTechWorld and #HRTechConf

If you don’t ask the right questions, you sure as hell won’t get useful answers!

It’s HR technology conference season, and we’d better get our act together if we’re going to get the maximum value from our time spent at these conferences. That means knowing what questions we’re trying to answer before we’re bombarded with […]

In Enterprise Software And Luxury Accommodations, Details Matter And No Disappointments Accepted

St. Mawes, the quintessential south Cornish coast village.

Ron and I have been spending a lovely holiday in England, treating ourselves to very high end accommodations in London and the Cotswolds, and now on the south coast of Cornwall. We’ve been having a wonderful time, including visits with friends, lots of theater in London, […]

Persistent HRM Object Model Errors Part II — Separating Position From Worker

Objects To The Left Of Us, Objects To The Right

Introduction

I’ve been on the warpath about flawed HR technology object models (and their predecessors, flawed data models) for longer than most of you have been sentient. My pique on this subject goes way back to the late 80’s and a now infamous consulting […]

Modest Rant — Your HR Technology Portfolio Contains Three Types Of HCM Applications

Different But Equally Beautiful

[This post was inspired by an exchange in the HR Technology Conference discussion group.]

When I look across all of HRM with the most expansive and contemporary perspective on work and workers (so here I include humanoid robots as workers but clearly not persons), I see the need and market […]

Modest Rant — No HCM Pain/Rethink/Disruption, Then Little Business Gain

Don’t Even Think About Getting Innovation Without Disruption

[This post evolved from my Twitter reactions to a range of marketing messages and advertorials which make it sound as though their current on-premise customers, as well as the on-premise customers of other vendors, could get all the benefits of business innovation enabled by next generation […]

Modest Rant — HCM SaaS Economics — One More Time!

With a huge shout-out to Brian Sommer from whose wonderful blog post I “borrowed” this graphic.

[The impetus for this post, first published 2-21-2015, was some absolute nonsense online which sort of equated SaaS to “cloud” (and faux “cloud” at that), then suggested that, while customers might save a little in the short run […]

Persistent HRM Object Model Errors Part I — Job And Position

Objects To The Left Of Us, Objects To The Right

Introduction

In May 2012, I published a blog post that covered the basics of objects and object modeling — the very basic basics. Assuming you’ve all been studying this topic since then (if you hadn’t already done so), it seemed like a good time […]
