Metrics based goals- made simple- what you really need!!

Metrics based goals- made simple- what you really need!!





This is the first in a 4 part series on Metrics and goals.



I have read over and over again about metrics based goals for staffing professionals and recruiters. I have created, reviewed, analyzed, and been held accountable to metrics'. However the one thing I have come to learn is, in general we make it way to hard. We tend to over analyze, over metric ourselves to death. Yes all the different metrics have a…

Car. Care. Career.

Ever notice that the first 3 letters of the word "career" form the word "car" and that the first 4 letters of "career" form the word "care"?

Back to the Future or why we forgot what teaching is

Thanks to the ilks of Jeb Bush and Bill Gates the United States has pushed our educational system and governmental entities have pushed the country to evaluate both our students and teachers on the basis of the results of standardized tests. They claim that the testing results are a clear picture of the success of our educational system.

I spent six years of my life in the classroom and having graduated under a system which did not put as much emphasis on testing I can tell you while…

Corporate America and the GPS Mentality

As I write this I am on a family vacation to visit friends in Colorado Springs. As I do on most trips I called AAA for a Triptik and loaded the address in the GPS. When last Sunday came around we pulled out of the driveway and told the Magellan to take us there by the shortest route. Well come to find out that both the Triptik and the Magellan took us on the long way to get to our destination and in the process added about 200 miles to the trip by taking the long way to get there.

San Diego Comic-Con: lessons in marketing

Even if you’re not a nerd, you’ve probably heard of San Diego Comic-Con. If you can recall seeing a puzzling July newscast featured costumed adults, you’ve definitely seen some footage.

Comic-Con used to be about comic books – and it still is, nominally. But in the last decade, it’s boomed from a nerdy convention for comic book readers and gamers to the biggest pop culture expo in the world. Hollywood is king, and studios roll out their flashiest, loudest attractions to dazzle the…
