It was back in late 2013 that I first encountered Freightos as part of our New Wave Companies to Watch program. Similar to my 2009 radio series Emerging Giants: The New Titans of the SaaS World, the focus of the New Wave program was to identify the up and coming disruptive innovators who I believed would […]

Company culture and the Glassdoor effect by Jon Hansen

November 11, 2015

In yesterday’s post, I had made reference to a Forbes article by Josh Bersin  titled Culture: Why It’s The Hottest Topic In Business Today, in which he made the statement that “We have arrived in a world of “haves” and “have-nots” when it comes to attracting and engaging top talent.” Bersin then went on to say that “Fortune’ Best Companies happen […]

Article by veteran contracts expert Lewis-Fernandez demonstrates the kind of thinking that gives negotiation a bad name by Jon Hansen

Point #3 Create a strong foundation by building relationships first: This is probably one of the most important things an individual can do in regards to negotiation and in business in general. Perhaps you have attended the standard “networking” event where you give dozens of cards out without having a real conversation with anyone. It’s time […]

While Forbes reference to Procurement Insights nice, the insights of Vitasek’s article on negotiation is the real story by Jon Hansen

Okay, I have to admit it, it is exciting to see the Procurement Insights’ brand referenced in an article in Forbes. However, it is Kate Vitasek’s insights in her piece titled Procurement Departments Negotiating “Too Aggressively” that is obviously the real story. I met Kate in person for the first time this past November at the Virginia 2014 […]

Avoiding the dot.com bust: Why India’s new eCommerce boom isn’t a bubble by Jon Hansen

We are all likely familiar with the term those who fail to learn from the past are doomed to repeat it. There is also the saying that “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results.”  Just as an interesting aside, Albert Einstein is often times given credit for making this observation, […]

Revised Forrester Wave Report confirms what I have been saying since 2007 . . . eVA is tops in public procurement by Jon Hansen

April 4, 2014

From my very first Yes Virginia posts (Part 1 and Part 2) in September 2007, I have believed without any uncertainty that the Commonwealth of Virginia’s eVA eProcurement platform is a model that governments around the world should emulate. This is especially true given the fact that the vast majority of initiatives in the public […]

Forbes article about ERPs moving to the cloud is, according to Oracle’s Ellison, gibberish by Jon Hansen

March 6, 2014

Sometimes you just have to shake your head and wonder if anyone remembers what they said in the past and how it comes across today. For example, back in 2008 Oracle’s Larry Ellison said that “we have redefined cloud computing to include everything that we already do.”  Dismissing it with the fashion industry analogy that […]

The Year in the Life dénouement (okay winners) . . . by Jon Hansen

In what was the ultimate movie cliffhanger, the main protagonists in the 1969 classic The Italian Job, found the bus they were traveling in precariously perched over the edge of a cliff.  Whether they survived or careened down the steep drop was left up to the movie goer to decide. Well I am happy to […]

Assimilating Innovation (Part 3 of 3): Tracking “The Game Changers” (3D Industri.es) by Jon Hansen

April 16, 2013

Sometimes – and it doesn’t happen often – one’s own rich history and depth of experience in a particular area intersects with emerging market shifts to provide a moment of epiphanic realization.  What makes this the more exciting, has little to do with being right or calling the shot.  It is instead the actualization of […]

Have you overstayed your welcome with your present employer?

Editor’s Note: Great post from Roz Usheroff’s The Remarkable Leader Blog. The other day I read an article in Forbes by Paolina Milana titled “5 Signs it’s Time to Leave Your Company.” It was an interesting piece in that it talked about the need to read the signs as it relates to whether or not […]
