Perfecting the Interview – A Waste of Time

On the one hand we all agree that the one ingredient for a successful candidate is fit. Does this person fit inside our culture? Can they do business our way? Can they represent us? Can they get along with all our folks? So what do we do? We scan resumes in a flimsy attempt to[…..]

Get Along? Or, Get It Done?

Without exception, projects in any company will touch multiple stakeholders, departments and individuals. The changes required will invariably touch operations, engineering and procurement, just to name the basics. Projects make and break budgets. They also make and break careers. Getting a project done requires leadership that does not care about social standing within the organization.[…..]

Meaningless Outcome Defined Planning

Posted on | Posted in Blog Tagged , ,

Can we quit the obnoxious and meaningless characterization of desired results masquerading as an action plan? Think about how often a leader, when asked for plan details, replies with some description of a favorable outcome without ever describing how that might come about. If you can’t remember one, just google about any political press conference.[…..]

Is Your Lexicon Lacking?

Posted on | Posted in Blog Tagged , ,

“You know, really I mean that like wow, it’s tougher to say like what you really mean.” Sound familiar? Is this you? Is it me? Have you noticed that speech patterns tend to deteriorate over time?

Phobias, Fears and Unicorns

Posted on | Posted in Blog Tagged , ,

If you want to vilify someone just tack on a phobia label. These days fear of anything makes us the villain, the bad actor, the malevolent one. Leaders, whether elected, chosen or self appointed, demonize fear as a tonic to assuage the masses of every threat. It’s meant to dull us down to a state of[…..]

Different Is Better

Posted on | Posted in Blog Tagged ,

If you’re looking for better start first with different. In culture of professed accomplishment, we’re bombarded daily with messages of superiority that lack identifying substance. Companies proclaim they are better. They provide superior customer service. Their product is highest quality. Words, hollow words. Regardless of how loudly you shout – shoppers, customers and purchasers won’t[…..]

Hyping Millennials

I’m about to scream if I read or hear another nonsensical diatribe of meaningless kerfuffle about how Millennials are generationally unique in human history. According to the ‘experts’ and pundits this group of young people see life from an entirely different historical perspective. Let’s see, they are smarter, more computer savvy, more collaborative and intrinsically[…..]

Someone Is Going to Get Hurt

With all the pressure to cut back, reduce prices, slash costs and do more with less, safety is going to be the first to suffer. Customers have demanded that suppliers cut prices. Suppliers have lost revenue and reduced their staffs to stay in business. My guess is there are safety professionals laid off and additional[…..]

SCADA, IOT and the Cloud

Posted on | Posted in Blog Tagged , , ,

SCADA must rely on the Cloud to accomplish the Internet of Things. Legacy SCADA systems are a cornucopia of varied protocols, operating systems, software versions and hardware capabilities. Few communicate seamlessly with each other. A lot of older ones barely talk to themselves. Over the years, they have gotten much better. However, successive modernization of[…..]

Forget Minimum Wage – What’s Coming Is a Lot Bigger

Don’t mistake the current surge toward elevating minimum wages as the big issue for business and the greatest impact on the economy. It’s pennies compared to the new rules that legally exempt employees from wage and hour rules. Most salaried employees are improperly classified. Seriously, check the rules, if you’re salaried. Do you really qualify?[…..]

Not Enough People.

Our nation faces a monumental demographic problem – not enough people. Our birthrate, long below growth rate, is approaching non sustainability. Europe is already in the tank. The US is not far behind. Estimates proclaim nearly 20 million undocumented residents – who we’ve steadily marginalized as being illegals.
