So You Think You’re An HRM Business Analyst/Product Strategist?

A Business Analyst’s Work Is Never Done

Originally published, 2/4/2011, I’ve updated this post on 1/5/2012 to emphasize the tremendous, really critical importance of understanding and making effective use of data analysis to drive improved decision-making. So that you can spot the updates, I’vedone them in italics.

As many of you know, I’ve worked […]

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 […]

Impressions From HR Technology Conference 2011

Ooooogah! Oooooogah!

Updated 10/11/2011 — join the discussion about getting to great HRM software over at LinkedIn’s HR Technology Group http://www.linkedin.com/groupItem?view=&gid=1772602&type=member&item=74705112&qid=589809af-35c8-492b-b988-49f4c32dd041&trk=group_most_recent_rich-0-b-ttl&goback=%2Egmr_1772602

I’m exhausted but energized, if it’s actually possible to be in both states at once. I’ll leave it to others to do both the play by play and color commentary, neither of which […]

Free Agent Nation: Nail Tech Tales

Nail Tech Tales

When Daniel Pink’s now classic “Free Agent Nation” was published in 2001, it brought to public attention the world in which I had been living for much of my professional life. Just in my little neighborhood, at the intersection of HRM and IT, I knew well several dozen solos, like me, […]

In Search Of HRM/HRMDS/HR Tech “Best” Practices: Istanbul To Venice — Field Report Part II

Regent Seven Seas Mariner Underway

The first part of this post was a personal report on our recent travels. In this second part, I want to share what I learned about our industry’s “best” practices along the way. More specifically, I want to describe some of the HRM practices that Regent Seven Seas uses […]

More Of Naomi’s “Killer” Scenarios: KSAOC-Centric Strategic HRM

Figure 1: KSAOC-Centric, Strategic HRM

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. That which is strategic, often referred to as talent management, is considered worthy of executive attention, academic research, attendance at expensive conferences, and […]

Follow The Yellow Brick Road Part III: HRM Strategies, Outcomes And Design

My apologies for the long detour from the Yellow Brick Road while I attended to heavy business travel, client deliverables, more shoulder rehab, and the final business details for closing on M/V SmartyPants. More on SmartyPants in a later next post, complete with pictures. For now, we’ve got a lot more work to do along […]

M&A Observations: SuccessFactors Acquires Inform — What’s The Real Issue Here?

There’s been some terrific discussion in the blogosphere about SuccessFactor’s recent acquisition of Inform, and I won’t repeat here what Ventana Research, Knowledge Infusion OnDemand and others have had to say about what looks like a smart move for SuccessFactors and a potentially important contribution to HR’s ongoing quest for the “holy grail” of actionable […]

Signal To Noise Ratio: Performance Management Breakthrough?

Wikipedia defines the signal-to-noise ratio (did I mention that Ron was a NASA communications systems engineer with an ABD in electrical engineering?) as the ratio of signal power to the noise power corrupting the signal. A ratio higher than 1:1 indicates more signal than noise, a very good thing. SNR compares the level of a […]
