Re-reading a book I received a couple years ago, I found this expression “walk the escalator”. The book is titled “Jump the Curve, 50 essential strategies to help your company stay ahead of emerging technologies” and written by futurologist Jack Uldrich. He points out that, despite the fact the escalator was created to help us reach the next floor faster, most people stand on the escalator, actually taking longer to get there.

Seven ways to find out if that new job is right for you.

Blog-post by, ,

Maybe, just maybe, the job market is finally beginning to improve.  As I write this the headline on CNBC is that jobless claims last week were down by 13,000.  There is a less formal measure of improvement in the job market that I am personally beginning to observe.  Since the first of the year, for the first time in many months, I am beginning to get calls from some of my friends in the recruiting business who are looking for referrals.  I am also hearing from former colleagues and employees who are re-entering the job market and are seeking references and/or advice.&nb

Enterprise Systems: Too Quiet? Are they slipping under the radar?

Blog-post by,
JBartman

Am I wrong or is the Enterprise Systems & Solutions business (IBM, Oracle, Accenture, some of HP, a bit of MSFT, Deloitte, KPMG, Cap) suspiciously quiet?

The Enterprise was always where the action was - dueling proprietary operating systems, rogue PCs, distributed systems, business process re-design & automation, Y2k, ERP, SOA, application integration, s/w as a service, consulting-lead highly industry-specific solutions, E-everything...

The Fallacy of Planning

Blog-post by,

The Fallacy of Planning says we are terrible at planning how long something will take and how much it will cost. Restated another way, the planning fallacy is people’s tendency to underestimate what it will take to get something done. The phenomenon of the planning fallacy ought not be a big surprise to any CIO or project management professional given the attention it has received over the years.
