    Management Decisions - The Death of the 9-to-5
by Alexandra Levit and Jenna Connour - Apr, 2015
Working flexible hours. Telecommuting. Job sharing. These are all examples of flex schedules, which are becoming increasingly popular for many companies and businesses. In the coming years, as millennials become the predominant age group in the workforce, the traditional 9-to-5 work schedule may soon meet its demise. Instead, flex work schedules are set to become commonplace. To learn more about this topic, Jenna Connour chats...
 
  12 Ways Project Management is Evolving According to Gartner
by Alexandra Levit - Feb, 2016
“The basic building blocks for digital services and products … have become so evolved, inexpensive, and ubiquitous, that they can be easily combined and recombined.” — The Economist, January 2014 As the data age marches on, IT and business become even further intertwined. Where do project managers fit in the radically new IT ecosystem that will be a reality by 2020? On his recent Project Management in 2020 webinar, Gartner...
 
  Are You Ready For Industry 4.0?
by Alexandra Levit - Feb, 2016
The next phase of manufacturing will be all about information technology. Which of these trends will have the most profound impact on your work? Industry 4.0 is the brainchild of the German government and describes the next phase in manufacturing, known as the post information revolution. I came across a great primer from Boston Consulting Group that neatly describes the nine pillars of technological advancement that underp...
 
  8 Ways You're Hurting Your Productivity by Being Conscientious
by Alexandra Levit - Jan, 2016
You may be conscientious, but are you productive? They’re two different things. When I take work personality tests, I’m off the charts on conscientiousness. Conscientious people tend to show self-discipline, act dutifully, and aim for achievement. We display planned rather than spontaneous behavior and are generally organized and dependable. This all sounds great, of course. But conscientiousness and productivity are not...
 
  IT Leaders: 5 Reasons To Encourage Citizen Development
by Alexandra Levit - Jan, 2016
Many IT leaders and even CIOs today are missing an opportunity. Their teams spend all day catering to business needs when in fact the business managers can and should be empowered to solve problems themselves. There is an old saying that goes: “Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day, but teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime.” IT leaders who facilitate low code rapid application development knowledge in em...
 
  How To Use Social Media In Your Recruiting With 3 Easy Steps
by Alexandra Levit - Jan, 2016
Social media can be a terrific recruiting tool, but only if you understand your audience and the laws that formally and informally govern networks. Most organizations have figured out by now that blasting generic job postings over Twitter doesn’t generate much targeted interest. The better approach requires a bit more legwork but is certainly worth it in the end. Locate where your targets already hang out Most organizati...
 
  HR Needs to Look in the Mirror
by Alexandra Levit - Jan, 2016
Last year, a colleague emailed me a report by McKinsey and the Conference Board. Called False Summit: Why the Human Capital Function Still Has Far To Go, the paper eschewed the notion that companies and their leadership teams have achieved the holistic and systematic view of human capital strategy that is required in today’s business world. Using research conducted across three methods: a global survey, a literature review,...
 
  Variables Impacting Recruitment Strategy
by Alexandra Levit - Jan, 2016
Segmentation is nothing new to our colleagues down the hall in marketing, but when it comes to recruiting, it’s a relatively new phenomenon. Just a few years ago, recruiting messages were “one-size-fits-all.” We agreed on company verbiage we wanted to share publicly and then shouted those words to anyone who would listen. Then, of course, we’d be stuck going through thousands of resumes, many of which were completely unsuitabl...
 
  4 Ways To Encourage Intrapreneurship
by Alexandra Levit - Jan, 2016
I’ve long been a fan of intrapreneurship, or the practice of entrepreneurial strategies within the context of, and leveraging the resources of, an established organization. I wanted to come up with some good intrepreneurship programs pioneered by HR for this piece, but it was more difficult than I expected. Beyond the open allocation topic, which we discussed earlier this year and which is mostly limited to the startup comm...
 
  Start Your New Hire's Year Off Right
by Alexandra Levit - Jan, 2016
In her book You’ve Only Got Three Seconds, Camille Lavington writes that people form a permanent opinion of you based on a very brief initial impression. The same phenomenon can occur when fresh hires show up to their first day at a new job. If things go well, they may return home brimming with enthusiasm for this next phase in their life. And if things don’t go well, a seed can be planted. This seed whispers that they've made...
 
  How to Successfully Launch A New Product
by Alexandra Levit - Dec, 2015
Once upon a time, businesses announced a new product or service with great fanfare, including activities like press releases and events scheduled over a day or two. Now, though, the launch process can be longer and significantly more complex—requiring businesses to plan a host of activities that will gain momentum for the offering. Many modern product launches may fail simply because it can be so difficult to get something...
