The Decline of Corporate Elitism

Wed, 08 Apr 2015 18:37:20 +0000

When I was a kid, I always hoped and dreamed that I would get into one of those Ivy League schools. Unfortunately, I was a disaster of a student (and a ridiculously undisciplined Asian student to boot). Yes, I had well over a 4.0 GPA, took 26 total AP classes in high school, but I … Continue reading The Decline of Corporate Elitism



What the Meta?

Tue, 20 Jan 2015 17:32:17 +0000

In the world of HR, the ability of HR practitioners to grapple with data and glean insights has been suspect by business leaders for a long time.  There are a variety of reasons for this from the lack of sufficiently high data quality, to insufficient HR practitioner skills to analyze data, to the lack of … Continue reading What the Meta?



Applying the Cheat Code

Tue, 13 Jan 2015 17:23:23 +0000

I’m pretty hopeless in most games.  There are always levels, other people to compete against, and too many tasks to get done.  Inevitably, I run out of patience before I reach the top state, or I realize I’m not very good at the game and I just give up due to incompetence.  The wonderful thing … Continue reading Applying the Cheat Code



HR Technology Conference 2014: HCM Roundtable

Wed, 17 Dec 2014 16:50:51 +0000

Every year we’re trying to figure out what’s next.  7 years ago, I started hearing about social HR everywhere, but the market really wasn’t ready.  Every HR organization thought that social was a bad idea, with personal privacy challenges looming to kill any social enterprise initiatives.  2 years ago, we all took for granted that … Continue reading HR Technology Conference 2014: HCM Roundtable



Get Over the Cloud

Wed, 10 Dec 2014 16:28:06 +0000

I think it was back in 2004 that I was writing about “DavesNextMove.com.”  PeopleSoft had just gotten acquired by Oracle, and Dave Duffield was sitting around with $1B but no job.  At the same time, SuccessFactors was building up some pretty good steam, about to start having bad implementations because their stuff was so much … Continue reading Get Over the Cloud



HR Technology Conference 2014: Global Payroll

Tue, 14 Oct 2014 20:58:21 +0000

If you read this blog, you know I like order and simplicity.  I want everything in one place.  My scale at home weighs me and integrates to my calorie tracker.  my calorie tracker integrates with my fitness tracker.  I know how many calories I’ve eaten, how many I’ve expended, and if my weight trend is … Continue reading HR Technology Conference 2014: Global Payroll



HR Technology Conference 2014: Recruiting System Thoughts

Thu, 09 Oct 2014 16:34:33 +0000

Overall, this year was one of the best years in a while for the vendor and show floor.  In my opinion, there were some significant areas where technology has finally started catching up with vision, and it was happening on a pretty broad level.  The smaller startup vendors from the last year have pushed the … Continue reading HR Technology Conference 2014: Recruiting System Thoughts



Common Sense KPI’s Gone Wrong

Wed, 17 Sep 2014 17:55:24 +0000

I love dashboards.  I have a goals list on my phone tracking how many miles I’m supposed to run or ride on my bike.  I have a trending graph on the device that tells my how much I weigh.  The only reason I have not bought one of those fitness wristbands yet is because I … Continue reading Common Sense KPI’s Gone Wrong



Time for the Annual HR Technology Survey

Tue, 27 May 2014 15:19:16 +0000

With the web content and search developing the way it has over the last 15 years, I think we take for granted how ubiquitous information is.  We can Google just about anything and get decently reliable results every time.  At the root of all of this, somebody is creating great information and insight, and it … Continue reading Time for the Annual HR Technology Survey



The Evolution of Standardization

Wed, 30 Apr 2014 16:28:45 +0000

So my wife has been on a homemade donut kick lately.  That’s right, every weekend I get to sample another dozen donuts.  Those of you who read often know that my constant struggle to stay fit must work really well when there is a new batch of donuts sitting around the house every Saturday morning. … Continue reading The Evolution of Standardization
