Business is changing fast. Even companies that believe they have a competitive edge today are at risk of falling behind. Information Technology (IT) keeps businesses booming, but it’s a stretch for busy executives to drop into the data center to ensure that server racks and network boxes are humming. Leadership is preoccupied with growing the customer base, keeping costs down, profitability and growth. At a time when disruptive products and services are the name of the game, it’s become clear that doing “enough” with your technology investment simply isn’t enough to survive.
Digital transformation (DX) is fundamentally changing enterprise resource planning (ERP) — allowing businesses to transform their decision making, which is enhancing their business outcomes significantly as we enter the digital economy. Digital transformation is an enterprisewide, board-level strategic reality for companies wishing to remain relevant or maintain or enhance their leadership positon in the digital economy. Digitally transformed businesses have a repeatable set of practices and disciplines that are used to leverage new business, 3rd Platform technology, and operating models to disrupt businesses, customers, and markets in pursuit of business performance and growth. DX is driving businesses to rethink their technology strategy, and that includes moving beyond their legacy ERP and back-office systems.
RTI Health Solutions (RTI-HS), a business unit of RTI International, provides biopharmaceutical companies
research and consulting services. RTI-HS realized that managing data in multiple systems that were not designed
to meet its specific project-based needs was slowing down processes and impacting project deliverables.
Company leadership wanted one integrated system that would give greater control over data, speed up the
proposal process and provide access to real-time project information. RTI-HS turned to Deltek, a project-based
ERP tool specifically designed for professional services firms, for a user-friendly solution that could be customized
to match its business processes and make it easier to manage its business in one place.
HR, corporate development, and employee training are rapidly approaching a new reality that’s as much science fact as science fiction. “Human Learning is About to Change Forever,” a white paper we researched in partnership with Cisco, shares nine bold predictions about how technology will impact employee training and leadership development.
Fostering a positive relationship with a hiring manager is a journey that involves both patience and an honest assessment of the current state of the relationship. Bersin by Deloitte research found the most influential predictor of TA performance outcomes is a strong relationship between the recruiter and the hiring manager. In fact, this relationship is four times more influential than other TA performance drivers.¹
Many TA leaders also believe their recruiters are perceived with high regard by hiring managers and company leadership. However, a study by ERE Media found that recruiters and hiring managers have different views of recruiter performance—with recruiters giving themselves an average performance grade of B and hiring managers giving recruiters an average grade of C-plus.²
