What’s True SaaS And Why The Hell Should Customers Care?

Why Buy The Cow?

When I was barely into my teens, my mother’s (every mother’s of that era) version of the sex talk was captured in this expression: “Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?” This was long before birth control pills were invented, years before the “Summer […]

A Bloom’s Christmas: Inventory Management And Retail Retold

A Page From Bloom's Camera 1950 Catalog

On Christmas Eve, my Dad’s retail camera shop closed early, and we knew we’d have him with us all that next day. Really just with us, even if he was too tired for much conversation after working the very long hours of the retail Christmas […]

Lars From Mars, The Wookey, Carmen Miranda And Me

Island Of Lost Souls — 1932

When Ron and I moved near DC in 1977, there was a late night TV program, called “Creature Features,” that we loved. It was hosted by Dick Dyszel who, for reasons lost in the mists of marital life, I nicknamed Lars from Mars. Dick played rarely shown […]

What Just Happened To The Talent Management Technology Spend?

What Happened To The Rest Of My Pie?

Updated 12-16-2011 after the 12-15-2011 announcement of Salesforce.com’s acquisition of Rypple. If there was any doubt left in your mind that I’ve been working in the hottest, sexiest corner of enterprise software, you’ve been living under a rock. After all, in a world of subscribed […]

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 […]

Clowns To The Left Of Us, Jokers To The Right: It’s Easy To Spot Ineffective HRM

Clowns To The Left Of Us, Jokers To The Right Of Us…

I’ve been collecting stories for years. Family stories, stories about friends, about trips Ron and I have made, about colleagues and others with whom I’ve crossed paths professionally, about the highlights and lowlights (and lowlives) in my personal and professional lives. Now, […]

Thanks And Giving — Reflections For Thanksgiving 2011

 

Classic Windowsill Tzedakah Box

It’s that time of year again when American’s reflect on how very fortunate we are to live in this amazing country and on what we can do to make it better. For all the problems we’ve got, and they are daunting, we are so very blessed to be […]

The Scourge of HRM Software — Technical Debt

Where Does Technical Design Debt Originate?

I spent a very intense week last July in Silicon Valley meeting mostly full days each with Workday, SuccessFactors, Taleo, Saba and SAP, and would like to start this post with a huge and very public thank you to all of these vendors for their time, their […]

InFullBloom’s 2nd Anniversary — 11/08/2011
