Adventures of Bloom & Wallace

a work in progress

2012 Was Workday’s Year; Who Will Own 2013 In HR Technology?

And the winner is?

[Shout-out to my colleague Lisa Rowan at IDC. Her recent guest post was the impetus for my finishing this post, which I had started right after Workday went public on 10-12-2012.]

1987: Bloom & Wallace and PeopleSoft Founded

1987 was a big year in the history of HR technology. […]

A Bloom’s Christmas: Inventory Management And Retail Retold

Disclosure: If you think you read this last Christmas, you’re quite right. And you may read it again. I learned so much about business, absorbed it through my pores as I worked at Bloom’s Camera (later, Bloom’s Photo Supply and then just Bloom’s, Inc.), lingered at my grandmother’s kitchen table after Friday night […]

Tikkun Olam — We Are Commanded To Fix The World

Hillel the Elder

When I was sixteen (the legal age for automobile driving in Massachusetts at that time), and after considerable driver training with the redoubtable Chief Walmer (a retired police chief who was the driving instructor of choice where I grew up), I:

presented myself in person at the local DMV (the […]

Reprise: Choices, Compromises, Serendipity and Sh#t

Reflecting on what might make a great list of 2013 predictions — beyond those I’ll be discussing next week on my first videocast — I realized that I’d either be repeating a list of hot topics with which you’re already familiar or showing my ignorance (it’s getting worse not better with the explosion of […]

Interrogatory Configuration And Workday’s Tech Summit 2012

[Full disclosure: Workday is a client, but I attended their Tech Summit 2012 and a portion of Workday Rising 2012 as an “influencer,” and my related travel expenses were reimbursed by Workday.]

You may have thought that everything that could be said about Workday’s Tech Summit 2012 had already been posted, but […]

Thanks And Giving — Reflections For Thanksgiving 2012

[As I’m writing this, Israel is under attack from Hamas terrorists, and there are literally hundreds of Hamas rockets, supplied by Iran, raining down on Israeli civilians daily. In response, Israel is going after Hamas leaders, rocket launchers, weapons depots, and similar military targets. Can you imagine our response if the Mexican drug cartels […]

InFullBloom’s 3rd Birthday — Here’s Where It All Started!

Happy Birthday InFullBloom

I launched my blog exactly 3 years ago, 11-8-2009. In my wildest dreams, I never expected to attract so many loyal readers — there are now 10K+ of you — nor did I realize how much I would enjoy blogging. So, with a huge shout-out to those of you who have […]

Great Customer Service Is Simple!

Ted Goff Explains Customer Service

Nothing exposes you more viscerally to great or lousy customer service than what you experience on a long-planned and much-needed vacation. And when you’re paying the bill, with your precious free time and money, all your senses are on full alert for any delta between what you need […]

“I’ve Looked At Clouds From Both Sides Now”

 

I’ve Looked At Clouds From Both Sides Now

Coming of age in the 60’s, I was so blessed to be there when some of the greatest folk music ever was written and performed, often by the same person. It was the Golden Age of singer/songwriters, and Joni Mitchell was one of the […]

Reprise — Harry’s And Naomi’s Rules

Sunset At Bloom & Wallace HQ

[An earlier version of this post was published 3-11-2011.]

Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about life lessons, about rules to live by, and about how to make the last third of my life as productive, full of joy and meaningful as possible. I’m inspired by my […]
