Will the Real HR Please Stand Up January 29, 2015 at 9:20 AM
There are plenty of articles written about strategic HR. This one is about just HR. If you really understand human resources, you'll know that adding "strategic" before it is superfluous. Because HR, by its very nature, is strategic – if you're doing it right. And strategic HR isn't just reserved for executives of HR. Whatever your function within the department,
A word (or two) to the first-time CEO December 24, 2014 at 10:57 AM
First time CEO? Take heed. How you behave, the image you project, the values by which you govern yourself, they're all part of the recipe for success - or failure. My father is a wise man. He once shared an expression with me that has remained at the forefront of my thoughts with every company I join: A fish always rots from the head.

CIO = VP Engineering As Roles Collide July 4, 2016 at 11:23 AM
As an executive search firm we get involved in many searches involving technology professionals. One of the interesting changes that we are seeing now is the narrowing of the gap between the profiles for CIOs for corporations and VPs of Engineering in software companies. Twenty years ago CIOs were very internally oriented. The CIO role was concerned with building or buying applications that supported the internal business processes. They did some development but the emphasis was more on integrating applications. On the other side of the fence there were software firms that typically had VPs of Engineering that worked with product managers on features and functionality of software products, developing and testing products before releasing them into the market. At that time the CIO and VP Engineering pools were very different.
