Adventures of Bloom & Wallace

a work in progress

Lawson Software — A Very Sad Ending

Lars Lawson — The Symbol Of All Things Lawson

I first wrote about the HRM enterprise software “Snowdons of Yesteryear” (with apologies to Joseph Heller for this misuse of his famous phrase, “where are the Snowdons of yesteryear” in Catch-22) in the earliest days of this blog (so 11/2009). In that original post, I […]

HRM Software/Services Q1 Vendor Briefings — Capability Matters

HRM May Not Need Battlestar Galactica Capabilities

My first post in this series focused on the importance of understanding the ambitions of HRM software/services vendors and the implications of those ambitions for buyers/investors/employees/the industry. Next came a post focused on the different strategies of these same vendors, the many moving parts that must be […]

HRM Software/Services Q1 Vendor Briefings — Strategy Matters

Show Me The Money!

In my last post, I wrote about one aspect of the way in which I look at and learn about the HRM software vendors and outsourcing providers with whom I’ve been meeting over the last few months, namely their ambition as businesses. In this post I want to take up […]

HRM Software/Services Q1 Vendor Briefings — Ambition Matters

When I Could Still Climb Mayan Pyramids

Many of you know that I’ve been doing a ton of briefings/demos with HRM software and services vendors this quarter, with many more to come. So let me start this post with a major shout-out to all the vendors with whom I’ve met and will be meeting […]

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, […]

Bloom & Wallace Release 2011 — Mercer Human Capital Connect

I Hired Naomi!

Last month I posted the first installment of this series on planned changes in the mix and style of B&W consulting engagements/projects for 2011. It’s now with great pleasure that I announce one of those engagements. Beginning in January, I’ll be acting as a strategic advisor to the Human Capital […]

The Absolute Last Word On #HRTechConf 2010

#HRTechConf 2011

After being prompted that not everyone is following me on Twitter — in fact, that not everyone is on Twitter — I thought I’d better capture my tweets on this topic in a blog post. So, in case you missed this debrief, here were my thoughts as of 10/19/10 via Twitter on […]

Naomi’s Questions For Oracle OpenWorld 2010

Nuclear Fusion, Oracle Fusion, Close Enough?

With Oracle OpenWorld 2010 coming up next week, I hate having to miss one of the major enterprise IT three, four, five-ring circuses of the year. I would have loved to attend, but HR Tech 2010 is thefollowing week. And unlike my much valued and much younger Oracle […]

M&A Observations: StepStone Solutions Acquires MrTed — Who’s Next

Just in this morning was the announcement that StepStone Solutions is acquiring MrTed in what appears to be a very congenial coming together of two prominent European players in the talent management software market. In the interests of full disclosure, StepStone is a client with whom I’ve been working actively as this deal was getting […]

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 […]
