Lost and found and everything in between

I have been on a bit of a self imposed (and not so self imposed) break. I have just not been motivated to either blog or read my feeds. The reasons, several:-

Firstly. Over the last 3 months I have not found many really, really cool things. There have been cool things but nothing really, really cool to write about.

Secondly. I have been busy with work, the clean up after our first go live and now planning for the next one, in 13 days.

Third. I have been through a PC upgrade at work which killed my RSS reader, Pluck. I have installed a new reader (5th in the last 18 months), RSS Bandit. So far I like what I see, Pluck had become slow in recent upgrades, while my initial (5 hours) usage of RSS Bandit show it as very fast. I have also deleted all of my RSS feeds and will start building them again.

Finally. I have been busy at home, looking for a house to purchase here in Melbourne, while trying to sell up in Sydney. Neither activity has been very easy.

Over the next few hours/days I will be posting some of follow ups to what I have missed. All tapped out at 37K feet using Qumana a new offline blog posting tool I am trying out.

  1. So glad I found your blog, interesting read 🙂

    I am also a HR Manager and have been working on HRIS implementations for 3 years now (specifically SAP HR implementations). I have my ummm, 5th, go-live on Monday.

    Have you worked on SAP implementations? What do you think of SAP as a HRIS?

  2. Eve yes I have worked on SAP, we have a go live on Tuesday for PM, MM, FICO, RE. Had another go live last month and in October we did the HR/PA.

    As an HRIS it has it’s ups and downs and depending on your organisation there can be more ups than down (or more downs than ups).

    Glad you like the blog. There is a great community of HR blogs around, if you have not found them all check out http://community.hrblogs.org/ a little site I am trying to finish up. It is in beta/test/development at the moment so things are sometimes a little unpredictable.

  4. I’m so embarrassed. All I needed to do was to read a few more of your posts and it would have been very clear as to whether you were SAP-savvy or not!

    I’ve been working in the Change Management/Training area in implementation project teams of SAP HR specifically for 4 major State Government organisations. We’ve gone the whole ESS/MSS shebang, with additionally a number of non-payroll related modules such as training, OHS and Work Performance.

    Thanks for the link on your HR community listing, though my blog is less about HR and more about my personal rants and raves, so you can ditch me if I don’t “fit”, and I promise not to whine (much) 🙂

  5. Over the last 9 months I have been doing more a Change Mgmt role as well, not my forte but great experience. ESS/MSS is an interesting roll out as it typically impacts so many parts of the organisation.

    Maybe you can write a bit more on HR and HRIS, it would be good for more Australian content to get published. 🙂

  6. hmm, now you’ve got me thinking. I have another domain, ms-geek.net which is festering like an old sore. Maybe I’ll ditch the current content and make it a proper grown-up HR blog. I’ve learned an awful lot (as I am sure you have) over each subsequent implementation (and, of course how damn hard it is to change behaviour) that might be worth sharing. thanks!
