Executive wheels: BMW fail

I had the same thought Jerry had upon reading this post. City streets?? Really? When reviewing an M-anything, city streets and that class of car do not belong in the same paragraph let alone sentence. By Pashmina on 2014 12 23

Human resources: an exec’s worst enemy

As a 23 year old mastermind intellectual, I find it depressing that corporations - with their internationally acclaimed precedence - hire fools and clowns such as HR It is as safe to say that 2/3 of the HR people are entirely blind to, "personal" perspectives. And as a result always wish to find a square peg for the square hole, and not a round peg for a square hole to actually innovate. Whatever "perfect" you want - there cannot be a perfect candidate. So you must train them. That's another thing! 2/3rd of the HR populous are lazy ass's who don't train their professionals upon hiring. That says something. If you're stupid enough to "Look for the perfect candidate" and at the same time not train a POTENTIAL perfect candidate. you are wasting as much as time for the company for "Human RESOURCES" as you are claiming would-be perfect candidates as inferior.

What do Dominos and an appraiser have in common?

Good article, but I would disagree on values with appraisers coming in inflated at 20%. I think most real estate brokers with highly disagree with this statement. The mess created by the supposed "appraisal pool" and how they now do things is totally bazaar! Most people know appraisals are only done, for the most part, for lenders- so beware and be prepared as the article suggests. By Fred R Schneider on 2014 12 19

The Economist: Businesses are hiring...

You too can land a low paying job and pay a 30% tax rate while spending more time away from your family and any recreation. It's the American way. By Steven Shepard on 2014 12 17

The gift of great hires

Employers who make unreasonable demands from potential employees prior to employment deserve no loyalty or performance after employment. Background checks, credit checks, certifications, drug tests and citizenship verification for a 'job' are intrusive and rude and it is time American workers draw the line on this vulgar HR practice. By Steven Shepard on 2014 12 16

More on the great AI debate

Well written article. How can boldness be programmed into AI? I have been a life-long admirer of Alexander the Great. How can his boldness be programmed into any AI? Is that even desirable given the fact that even Alexander's greatest defenders are quick to point out that he was a dangerous Psychopath who killed most of his closest friends and associates. how can AI benefit the world when most people in the world refuse to lead, follow, or get the hell out of the way. They simply are there and every organization, military or civilian, must get the most out of these people. Will AI make those of us still working so efficient that most of us will have to be paid to do nothing? Already in our evolution no industry, including agriculture and mining, is labor intensive. I think AI will accelerate this trend. What do you think? By Paul Studdard on 2014 12 15

Measuring success

Todd's comments about metrics AND goal-setting are helpful. The sentence " If you are passionate about solving your customers’ problems and use this as a strategic differentiator, then you better have a way to identify how well you are doing this" leaves us with the question, "What would those metrics be?" How would you measure what success looks like or doesn't? By Mark McCulley on 2014 12 12

Executive wheels: BMW fail

Given theauthor's bias I'm surprised he was asked to evaluate the car. His basic premise that the operating the M4 in the city at normal speeds is very unexciting is flawed. While true, that's not the reason to own this car, and city streets are the worst place to test it. I drove 3 different M class cars at the BMW Performance Center in Spartanburg and it is amazing what they are capable of. I've never driven cars that had the acceleration, suspension, turning, and braking characteristics of the M class cars, while simultaneously allowing the driver to feel totally safe in a very stable, ground-hugging vehicle. As I read the article I surmised that perhaps the author might have the same disdain for the numerous SUVs on the market that weren't designed for city streets either. My conclusion? RIght car, wrong interviewer. Let him test and review 4 cylinder city sedans in the future! By Jerry Maglio on 2014 12 11
