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 […]

Carnac The Magnificent: Unseen Answers To 2011’s Unknown Questions

Carnac the Magnificent

When we lost Johnny Carson, we lost a great entertainer. For thirty years, 1962 to 1992, he dominated late night television, and he did that without insulting our intelligence or our sensibilities. My beloved grandmother, Bubbi Bloom, with whom I lived through much of high school, would get ready for […]

In Search Of HRM/HRMDS/HR Tech “Best” Practices

Of the many reasons cited for outsourcing one or more HRM business processes as well as for making investments in HRM software, none is more susceptible to marketing hype than that outsourcing providers and software vendors deliver “best” practices in HRM. The best HRM software, “out of the box,” may certainly deliver some good practices […]

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 […]

Follow The Yellow Brick Road Part IV/Finale: The HRM Delivery System!

If you feel like you’ve been stranded along the way or that we’ve (or you’ve) been off on various scenic detours, my apologies for not providing the final installment of our Yellow Brick Road travelogue as quickly as I had hoped. Life just keeps happening; we keep up as best we can. And if you’re […]

M&A Observations: NorthgateArinso Acquires Convergys’ HRO Business

There’s been a lot of commentary on this deal, so well may you ask what more there is to say. But just like with the Workday 10 release on which I just posted, I think there are several aspects of the NorthgateArinso/Convergys HRO deal that deserve further attention. Against a backdrop of why Convergys HRO […]

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 […]

More Of Naomi’s “Killer” Scenarios: Ongoing Organizational Design Complexities

One of the toughest aspects designing or evaluating HRM software is hoe well it accommodates quite specialized but frequently observed organizational designs that go way beyond the traditional command and control model that’s hard-wired into the designs of many legacy ERPs/HRMSs. Although accommodating newer organizational designs has been a goal of these older platforms, when […]

More Of Naomi’s “Killer” Scenarios: Worker Lifecycle Events

Worker bee lifecycle courtesy of www.bumblebee.org/images/lifecycle.jpg

After my initial post on “killer” scenarios, I’ve had a lot of positive feedback (more via email than via comments on the post, so perhaps some of my colleagues are a little reluctant to have their say in public?) on the value of that content and requests […]
