Technology has given us the ability to measure everything, and we’ve become hooked like addicts. Is all this measuring helping us or hurting us? The paradox in measuring is that you can see measured improvement when you stop measuring. But how will you know?
Would you rather have an employee move internally or move out of the organization?
It’s another milestone in the race to artificial superintelligence:
A study conducted by legal AI platform LawGeex in consultation with law professors from Stanford University, Duke University School of Law, and the University of Southern California, pitted twenty experienced lawyers against an AI trained to evaluate legal contracts. Their 40-page report details how AI has overtaken top lawyers in accurately spotting risks in everyday business contracts.
What if we’ve got it all wrong? What if in fact it’s not HR that needs to be disrupted, but leadership?
In business and particularly in HR we talk about ‘fit’. The right fit for the role, team fit, cultural fit, it’s all about fit and often as people we expect to fit in or try our best to so that we feel a sense of belonging.
Brené Brown talks repeatedly and more so in her latest book Braving The Wilderness about the differences between belonging and fitting in, and that if we ‘fit’ we lose some of our self, some of our authenticity, because to fit, we have to change who we are at the core.
'Culture is how people behave when no-one is watching’. That was the definition used by Bob Diamond, the Chief Executive of Barclays Bank. Under his tenure, Barclays’ employees were found to be rigging the LIBOR rate for which the bank was fined £290mn. I doubt Bob knew that this was going on but he has to take some responsibility for creating a culture which allowed this to happen. It is an example of how the ‘win at all costs’ mentality can have disastrous consequences.

Many organisations misunderstand digital transformation.
