completely unrelated? You were Conscious Napping!

Conscious Napping® teaches you to harness the power of your mind to manage stress, sleep better and have less
pain. Be more productive and engaged at work.
You will learn:
    - How Conscious Napping can help you improve your life
    - What it’s like to Conscious Nap
    - How your thoughts become things
    - How Conscious Napping can overcome reasons why employees don’t take  advantage of health programs

•             Understand the importance of visualization to analytics
•             Create visualizations with specific purpose
•             Effectively communicate data through modern design


5.  KEYNOTE  - A report on technology adoption

Jim Holincheck, VP, Advisory Services,  Leapgen 
(Jim previously:  Workday - HCM product development and Gartner - HCM market analyst)

 "The Cloud has Won - But What Has Been Lost:   How to Manage Feature Fatigue and Strategically Update Enterprise Software."

In the on-premises world, HR technology vendors would bring out new releases every 18-36 months.  Customers would do a technical update every 1-2 years and a major upgrade project every 4-6 years.  These long gaps in adding new functionality led many HR organizations to look at new solutions in recruiting, performance, compensation, and learning offered via Software-as-a Service (SaaS).  Today, most new HR technology purchases are SaaS solutions.  The Cloud has won.  However, a different challenge has emerged for customers.  They now have a portfolio of HR technology vendors that are delivering dozens, hundreds and even thousands of new features each year.  Customers struggle to keep up.  How do you decide what features will really move the needle and how much change your organization can absorb?  What can you do to better run, optimize, and innovate with your HR technology solutions?  In this presentation  you will learn what drives HR technology success:

  •     Start with a vision and guiding principles aligned to your strategy
  •     Develop a roadmap that reflects the right priorities
  •     Build the skills for tomorrow's new roles that you don't have today
  •     Define good release management processes/practices
  •     Apply agile methodologies based on your culture
