September 15, 2017
We live in an environment today that is oftentimes referred to as the “experience economy”. Simply put, our expectations are based on holistic end-to-end experiences; no longer just a product, a service or a feature. Because we are surrounded by experiences each day combined with the fact that our audience for HR and workforce technology has been flipped 180 degrees on its head over the last 10 years, our role has changed and is changing faster than ever.

Introducing LeapAcademy! Reinventing the HRIS and Workforce Technology Profession One Learner at a Time!
February 09, 2017
Change is happening at a faster pace than most enterprises can handle on their own. Name one aspect of your business that isn’t being touched by digital transformation [or should be touched].

We must focus on how to take a LEAP forward to deliver a personalized approach to HR/workforce solutions, seizing on the digital disruption that is happening all around us.

Consumerization of Business Software - Our Time Is Now!
October 21, 2016
Business software is the core of revolution and development in any organization around the world. Digital Transformation initiatives are at a record high (think Y2K all over again) and the opportunity to rethink and leverage business software like never before is now. Before the year 2000, most of the software applications used in big companies were just stuck. Though the software was rich in various features, only a few users and the developers knew how to use it. Because of this, much business software has gotten a bad rap inside organizations with employees, managers and executives.
