Recruitment: Finding Genuine Talent in an Artificial World

Employers need to be able to ask specific questions, drill-down, and recover the root causes of problems and fill those gaps. We do not minimize skill sets by any stretch, but we have also learned that the ‘intangible’ side of the equation gives both sides a better shot at a long-term fit. #recruitment #hr #planning … Continue readingRecruitment: Finding Genuine Talent in an Artificial World

Information Governance: Navigating the Global Digital Economy

Right now, we are experiencing a fantastic transformation of the business environment but particularly the evolution of technology and the global digital economy. It is indeed an exciting time, but we are acutely (headline news) aware of the impacts of compromised data security and privacy, including the financial impact on brand and reputation, litigation, and the overall burden and distraction on the business. The exponential growth rate of incidents of data theft, damage, loss or inadvertent disclosure continues to expand not only in frequency but the scope, and complexity. While privacy concerns gained attention over 100 years ago and became topical again about 15 years ago, it is still truly in an infancy state. #information governance #privacy … Continue readingInformation Governance: Navigating the Global Digital Economy

The Opportunity Narrative

We can count on the fact that entrepreneurs and technology enterprises will continue to invent, innovate, and disrupt the status quo. For the foreseeable future, there will be jobs and careers for speeding the introduction and adoption of new technologies and building operationalization capabilities (accountabilities, workflows, and systems). Experimenters, early adopters, early majority, late majority, and laggards will all have jobs to do. However, we will discover that we must now cycle quickly through all those jobs. … Continue readingThe Opportunity Narrative
