Evaluating talent and their future performance
Filed under: Job Offer (Situations), Observ. Trends
Posted by: site admin @ 7:34 pm

All of us, employers, job seekers, and consultants
alike will benefit from the Schumpeter editorial
The tussle for talent” .  1 

All sorts of “favorite” identification [schools, programs,
research groups] and elitist training of talent methods
[leader plans, B-school executive programs, stretch
assignments]  have been promoted in many
parts of the wide employment horizon. 
The article points out “in their rush to classify
people companies can miss potential stars” and
can let strong talent leave. 

If I can, it is up to each individual to understand
the trends for seeking talent and find their ways
to effectively make their case.

Cloud computing. Services and evolution in laboratories

How do we read books, get our daily news and
read journals?  Many will point to the Internet
as increasingly their larger and larger source.

It is happening in many fronts.

Recent article in the Economist speaks about three
distinct layers in the cloud.  The outer layer is
“software as a service” (SaaS, phrased “sarse”).
Google documents, gmail, and SalesForce.com
are examples of  these services that have an
estimated business value of more than $11billion.

Platform as a service (parse, “PaaS”) offers new
services that programmers invent and devise for
clients on operating systems in the cloud.

IaaS (”infrastructure as a service” or “I-arse”)
has firms like Amazon Web services, GoGrid
and others expanding from a central service
function to many newer roles. Estimates of
PaaS IaaS economic value varies.

I have been learning about ELNs  1  2 
Electronic Laboratory Notebooks, as an
emerging area for all to learn about in school
and become proficient at.  While still in the early phase
so I do not understand the “cloud phase model,”
[SaaS, IaaS, PaaS]
ELN is a model for business application that
will ultimately be as common as handwritten
notebooks that look cheaper and simpler in
the short term.
