Last year’s theme was consumerization. This year it’s world domination. I’ve been spreading the theme it all year. Whether it made a blip on your radar or not is neither here nor in Paris.

Back in April I did the closing keynote at SHRM Tech in Mumbai, India. The topic was

That’s it. We’ve had all we can stands and we can’t stands no more. Buyers beware of some sellers, some of those connecting you to sellers and some of those writing about the buyers and the sellers. It’s time for some frog protection.

When there’s a rush to an industry as hot as HR

We pulled it off. I didn’t even know that “we” were a “WE” until the final event of the evening. And I wasn’t sure that the “it” from my keynote was a global “IT” until I met and spoke to attendees. What I do know is that the meaning of each word turned into

In the past two weeks, I’ve been on a Trivia Crack kick. I blame my brother-in-law for introducing me to the app that allows you to play your friends (or strangers) in trivia. It’s simple and interesting, with a tight, colorful UI that just works. If you’re already playing, and not losing every game,

That’s right, I’m going to burn one “vendor” that has nothing to do with the industry in which I work to make a point about the vendors in my industry – HR Technology. I’m done with sticky omelette pans. I’m done thinking it’s me. The vendor has to take some responsibility.

In December of 2014, our list of 2015 predictions was topped by the following statement: “Training management finally has its day.” It’s now March, and time to clarify something very important about that statement. The software vendors themselves need to move the first chess piece. That realization came to me at a celebration of Holi,

If only all of our life lessons could come from the voice of James Earl Jones. Three and a half decades since he was the voice of Luke’s father, the 84 year old master is still rocking the Broadway stage. This isn’t a review of You Can’t Take It With You, other than

Even when individual sports figures start to let us down, we can still find valuable lessons in team sports. Last night’s Golden State Warriors game showed me just that. Mind you, on most nights – more accurately on every single night until the last – the Warriors wouldn’t even cross my radar. Even

Our theme for 2015 HR Tech predictions is neglect, but perhaps in the spirit of the holidays it will have a happy ending? Either way, companies will ask themselves what haven’t we as a company focused on in a decade that we now recognize as key to our success or failure? Which

Last week, NFL quarterback Brian Hoyer led the Cleveland Browns to 24-3 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals. It was the Thursday night game, meaning that it drew a national audience, and it was also on the road to a Bengals team that had a better record than the Browns at the time.

OK, before I start losing friends at LRP, I want to say that both conferences were great. I also want to point out that there are other conferences thrown throughout the year, namely IHRIM and SHRM, that are worth including in the comparison. However, due to the commonality of name and the proximity in

Just look for Jeremy Ames  at the big table in front of the refreshments inside the entrance to the conference between 8-9 tand again at the 10:30 coffee break (or at other points in the day). There you can schedule a free 30 minute unbiased consult for today (or later) on what you’ve seen and what
