Edge 2016

I am excited to have been selected to present at Edge 2016, an IBM conference about solutions and technology for the cognitive era.

Below is the description of my session:

CLD-2194 : Building the Most Adaptable Workforce Vendor Management System

Companies are outsourcing more and more of their workforces. To help companies manage their growing contingent workforces, providers have developed technology solutions, including the contingent labor Vendor Management System, or VMS. As technology has evolved and matured, so have the capabilities of VMSes and the expectations of business stakeholders using VMSes. Today's VMS must not only automate contingent workforce management, but provide an adaptable experience that's complex yet simple, with rich analytics and dashboards, integration capabilities, and cloud performance and reliability. Our session will demonstrate how Superior updated its VMS Work Nexus using IBM technology into a modern business application.
  • Stream: Architecting the Future of Cognitive Business 
  • Track: Great IT Leaders; Trending IT and Leadership Topics 
  • Session Type: Breakout Session
Edge 2016 will take place September 19-22 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The Business Model Innovation Factory by Saul Kaplan (Book Review)

As a culture, we strive for personal transformation. Whether it's eating better and getting fit, redefining our professional value proposition through training and education, or simply trying to be kinder and gentler, we're constantly reinventing who we are and what we can do. We may not be successful all the time, or achieve breakthroughs like those featured on The Biggest Loser or facilitated by Tony Robbins , but millions of people successfully transform and reinvent themselves every year. Unfortunately, the very organizations where we work generally do not do the same. As Saul Kaplan elaborates in The Business Model Innovation Factory , most organizations struggle to transform from their core, initial business models and tend to become stagnant and vulnerable to disruptive competitors. The example Kaplan leads with is Blockbuster, which for a time owned the brick and mortar video and DVD rental space, until they were "netflixed" by a disruptive competitor (

Configuring a Wireless HP Photosmart C4380

Updated on 2009-11-16: It's been over a year since I wrote this, and lot of people continue to find this page from Google, which leads me to believe that people are still having problems with their HP Photosmart C4380s. For the record, over a year later the workaround I detailed here is still working for me. If you have something to add that might help others, please feel free to add to the comments. The original post follows below. ##   So, we bought a wireless printer. After some initial back and forth, we settled on a wireless HP Photosmart C4380. I thought we did a fair bit of research before purchasing the product, but apparently not enough, as there were many issues and surprises that we discovered only after we setup the device. I'm posting this to relate the significant difficulties we encountered setting up the printer and post workarounds I've implemented for the benefits of others who might be considering this product or who may have already purchased it
