Adventures of Bloom & Wallace

a work in progress

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 […]

Applications Integration — Financials And HR

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about both business and applications integration. You may have read my modest rant on the bastardization of the term integration as used to describe how applications are connected. You also may have seen my videocast comments on the reasons why I think that your HRMS and core talent management […]

HRM Analytics — Dashboards, Cockpits And Mission Control

[Many of you know that my husband, Ron Wallace, was a mission manager at NASA for international Search and Rescue Programs (official program name COSPAS/SARSAT) until he took early retirement in 1999 so that we could relocate to our present home in Fort Myers, FL. We were both fascinated by all things spacey, and continue […]

Driving Business Outcomes — Vocabulary Shapes Our Thinking On Analytics

The Yiddish Of My Youth Still Shapes My Thinking

In a previous post, I focused on the most fundamental metrics for measuring the impact of changes in HRM, presumably intended as improvements, on revenues and profitability. Hopefully, I succeeded in offering no-nonsense, strictly financial metrics. Focusing on changes in revenues and profitability per agreed […]

Reprise — The Road From HRM To Business Results Is Littered With Misguided Metrics

[I published a post addressing this topic right after I launched my blog 11/9/2009, and I never expected to address this topic again. Surely by now, I would have thought that we’d have broad agreement on how to measure the impact of HRM on business outcomes. But I had few readers in the beginning, […]

Is SHRM Listening?

SHRM — Are You Listening?

Forty years on, and we’re still talking about organizational readiness for strategic HRM (of which talent management is a large piece). Boring! The time for action is long past. SHRM, are you listening?

Why the hell isn’t your critical HRM data (e.g. positions, jobs, KSAOCs, worker, organizational structures, […]

Event Report — Workday Technology Summit 8-23-2010 — Humongous Post

Workday held a briefing yesterday for twenty of enterprise software’s toughest and most knowledgeable analysts. Workday had much more to say about their technology and business strategy, about their underlying architecture and object model, and about what’s cooking in the Lab than they’ve revealed thus far to this type of audience. Even a few surprises […]

Follow The Yellow Brick Road Part II: Vision, Strategy And Outcomes

In Part I of our journey down the yellow brick road to great HRM and HRM delivery systems, I set the stage in terms of the environment in which our organizations must operate and what they must do to be successful. By now you should have decided for your own organization — or will do […]

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 […]
