#HRTechChat: Talent Management — It Will Blend

Should we even call it talent management anymore? It’s the question posed for this, the second installment in an ongoing series of #HRTechChat episodes featuring 3Sixty Insights’ own analysts in human capital management. The answer is, it depends. Jen Dole, now well past her 90-day mark at the firm, joined 3Sixty Insights Co-Founder Brent Skinner for a conversation delving deeply into why.

Enterprise Risk’s Race to the Bottom: Sexy SAIDI

A crisis looms in Europe this winter over anticipated major lulls in mobile phone coverage. 3Sixty Insights’ fintech lead Craig Himmelberger takes a gander at it all, along the way tackling SAIDI, the acronym for the statistical formula used to calculate the average outage duration for each customer served by a utility (and not to be confused with the acronym’s homonym known for being a song by The Beatles). Bemoaning businesses’ often-lacking approach to managing risk, why do “companies’ risk assessment and mitigation strategies always tend to swerve toward easiest-to-measure things?” Craig writes in his late blog entry.

Measuring the Impact of Just-In-Time

When Is a Software Company Not a Software Company?

At first blush, cybersecurity firm Atos’ business focus sounds great, “but peel back a layer or two,” writes Craig Himmelberger, lead for our #fintech practice.
