Adventures of Bloom & Wallace

a work in progress

Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, And The “Days Of Awe” — 5774

As the years in front are increasingly outnumbered by the years behind, it’s a wise person who takes stock of what they’d like to do/see/experience/learn/etc. during those years in front and how and with whom they would like to spend their precious time. And today, we begin the Days of Awe, that time between Rosh […]

#HRTechConf & #HRTechEurope: 68th Birthday Resolutions

Birthday Girl!

As I get ready to host Brazen Hussies events, speak at and attend the 2013 HR Technology Conference in Las Vegas and the (not related) European HR Technology Conference in Amsterdam, I’ve got some surprises up my sleeves, to include announcing my latest professional resolutions. There’s nothing more motivating when you really […]

Naomi’s Next Chapter: “Life’s A Banquet, And Most Poor Suckers Are Starving”

Auntie Mame — My Heroine

Wrapping Up My Consulting Practice, Starting My Next Career Chapter

[For those of who got an early draft, please do read the final as I’ve updated it considerably based on your feedback and some late-breaking next chapter developments.]

One of my absolute favorite actresses of all time was […]

SAP, SAP, Wherefore Art Thou SAP?

SAP Founders 1988 — Klaus Tschira On The Left

[Full disclosure: SAP has not been a client in many years, and then my work with them was quite limited.]

I’ve always had a warm spot in my heart for SAP. When I published my first (and thus far only) 700+ page book in […]

I’m Feeling Optimistic About The State Of HR Technology!

It’s Good To Be Queen!

I’ve been feeling quite optimistic lately about the state of HR technology, which is quite a good feeling. For most of my career, I’ve been frustrated by less than great software and less than great adoption of the best available software, but now there are multiple reasons for […]

There Are No Stars On A Failed Project!

There Are So Many Causes Of Project Failure

There was quite a lot of discussion on Twitter and in the blogosphere earlier this week about a major payroll project disaster plaguing the State of California government. That discussion broadened to include tales of more failed payroll as well as ERP and various other […]

Ch..Ch..Ch..Changes At Bloom & Wallace

Naomi and Ron, The Way We Were

[ We’ve been revising our business strategy, mix of clients, project types, and so much more on a regular basis since 1987, but this is the first time we’ve made such changes in the era of social tech. My own view is that we should be […]

My 2013 And Beyond Wish List For HRM And HR Technology

Never mind trying to make meaningful predictions, which are very hard to do safely when you’re under a zillion NDAs. Instead, I’m focusing my energies on what I want to happen. What would I make happen if my magic wand, bought years ago at FAO Schwarz, could be recharged? What would I ask him to […]

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 […]

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 […]
