Quilt in progress from Asilomar 2009

Just back from Asilomar where I took a class with Carol Taylor. Here's the "work in progress."

Now I must move from quilting back to dealing with TOO many emails and too much analysis.

Benchmarking from the survey data

My life is about to be balanced with a one week visit to quilt camp! Yeah..... quilting with girlfriends and learning from some great teachers: I'm taking a class from Carol Taylor:

What that is balancing is weeks and weeks of deep benchmarking analysis for some really large companies that are looking to change their HR systems and implement more talent management applications. But, it has been interesting. We've discovered that the "top performers" adopt a lot more technology. they have the money for it. BUT....this is such a consistent finding. Year and year, those with MORE technologies that help manage people do better. And statistical geeks that we are, the directional causality is: have technology>>do better, rather than doing better>>buy technology.

Quilt....survey. I'm going quilting.
