Back in the early 70’s there was both a hit song titled I Can See Forever and a best selling book about GM titled On a Clear Day you can see General Motors. The point of the analogy can be rooted in Deming’s 6th point of quality. In this point he emphasized…Continue

I remember when I wasn’t allowed to use Wikipedia as a source for papers or research in school. Whether that was because teachers thought it wasn’t accurate or they wanted us to walk to the library to get a real book, it was extremely annoying. Well teachers, the times have changed―Wikipedia is nearly always the top source listed in Google for nearly everything, and it’s updated in a nanosecond. If Wikipedia doesn’t have an entry for a topic, I feel like it doesn’t exist.

Let's be honest, if we took a look at the technology you're using to interview even 5 years ago, I bet it would look almost the same as it does today.

I attended an seminar on succession planning today. They made an excellent point that the company's strategies are only one part of the equation for success. The best strategies in the world will not lead to success without proper execution. The company's talent handles the execution. Good strategies + good execution (talent) -> success.

I knew finding a job was hard work, but I had never imagined that it would be this hard. I have always believed in creating my own source of income, working for myself, and running the business how I wanted it to be ran. Sure I worked part time at a few grocery stores for extra money, but for the most part, I have always created my own source of income. Over this past year however, I decided that I would have to get a "real" job, because I no longer had enough money to continue building my…Continue
