With all of my exciting plans for Christmas and New Year’s taking a back seat to my second head/chest cold of […]
[ It’s HR technology conference season, and we’d better get our shit 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 vendors telling us that whatever they’re selling is the answer to our not-yet-formulated-clearly questions. […]
Celebrating Our 2010 Anniversary Over Dinner In The Languedoc-Roussillon, France
I launched my blog about 4 years ago, 11-8-2009. In my wildest dreams, I never expected to attract so many loyal readers nor did I realize how much I would enjoy blogging. I so wish new readers could start at the beginning because I’ve […]

[I wrote this post in June, 2010, just when Al and Tipper Gore had announced their separation mid-2010, at a time when true SaaS InFullBloom was in its infancy. I was spending a ton of time with a wide range of vendors, some licensees of my “Starter Kit,” working hard on the next generation […]
[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, […]
