Adventures of Bloom & Wallace

Reprise — An Open Letter To HR Executives

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. [...]

Reprise In Time For #HRTechConf: Do You Know How To Answer These Questions?

[I posted the original version of this on 9-12-2011, just in time for last year's HR Technology Conference. Now here we are again, in frantic last minute preparations, but so wanting to be sure that our conference plans are focused on the important HRM delivery system issues that we're facing. So I thought it [...]

Even Successful Products Deserve A Sunset Plan

The End Of An Era Is Near

[Disclosure: This is part memoir and part advertorial, where the advertiser is Bloom & Wallace.]

If you’ve been wondering about the long delay since my last blog post, read on to learn about one project on which I’ve been working. That project has been to finalize the [...]

Eight Characteristics Of Effective HRM And HRM Delivery Systems

In my last post, I told some all too typical business stories in which it was easy to recognize, in situ, really bad HRM policies and practices, HRM service delivery and HR technology use. Every manager has their own favorite such tales of woe, and my HR practitioner colleagues are awash in the fallout from [...]

HR Leaders: Do You Know How To Answer These Questions?

Dr. Naomi Is In!

Unlike my good friend Ray Wang, there are no Naomi clones. Just this solo consultant trying to save the world from bad HRM and HRM delivery systems. And while I’m a pretty productive and hard worker, there aren’t enough hours in a lifetime to support every HR exec who comes [...]

In Search Of HRM/HRMDS/HR Tech “Best” Practices

Of the many reasons cited for outsourcing one or more HRM business processes as well as for making investments in HRM software, none is more susceptible to marketing hype than that outsourcing providers and software vendors deliver “best” practices in HRM. The best HRM software, “out of the box,” may certainly deliver some good practices [...]

The Future Of HRM Software: Embedded Intelligence

Hi, I'm Naomi, your friendly HRM consultant

There’s an easy way to describe what I mean by embedded intelligence. Conjure up a memory of the best, most knowledgeable, most effectively consultative and strategic thinking HR leader you’ve ever known. Now conjure up a memory of that master of regulatory options and obligations, [...]

The Future Of HRM Software: Effective Dating

Tempus Fugit!

Did you think this was going to be a guide to finding the man/woman of your dreams? Wrong!

If you ask any HRM software vendor or BPO provider if their software is effective-dated, the universal response will be yes. And they’re telling the truth. Even the sorriest HRM [...]

The Future Of HRM Software: Naomi’s Preferred Behaviors

Who Can Forget This Teaching Moment? Susan Boyle Sings Out

Having done the first post in this series, on interrogatory configuration, without even realizing that I wanted to do an entire series, I then did a setup post to launch what I hope will be considerable discussion of the desired architectural characteristics (a.k.a. Naomi’s [...]

Follow The Yellow Brick Road Part IV/Finale: The HRM Delivery System!

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 [...]
