    Excellent piece as always! First off, Synetech and not Synectics Technologies would have been a better name. But on everything else, totally! Call in the ISVs hear them out. Forget past loyalties, you need a new solution to a new problem and your old ISV might not be best suited. Reach out to all stakeholders. Reach out to non-stakeholder expertise who will want to help you as they may well be stakeholders in future projects. Collate, analyse, and deduce.

    #1 Bill, it is in example buzzes like this that it is less important for me to be a brand ambassador and more important for me to be a passion ambassador. Rinky focuses her buzzes on her passion and in so doing I get an appreciation for her knowledge and even though I have no understanding of the world she works in, that is a basis for appreciation, and appreciation is a part of my learning journey.

    From this I learned about ELMAH and here I found the founder of Elmah discussing and sharing his passion at an event called the Umbraco UK Festival Video of this talk is here : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TT1LzsKBtTw

    At YouTube the typical view count for this kind of video is about 300+ but these are mostly hardcore. A good video opens pathways to appreciating the field - in this case I was curious enough to see what the Umbraco thing is all about, and here I found a website for the Umbraco community and it is a pretty cool site https://our.umbraco.org/

    Umbraco on it's first page says this

    "The friendliest CMS community on the planet
    our.umbraco.org is the central hub for the friendly umbraco community. Search for documentation, get help and guidance from seasoned experts, download and collaborate on plugins and extensions."

    It is not promising people who share an interest in Umbraco that they will discover their personal brand, the first thing this community does is say "THE FRIENDLIEST CMS COMMUNITY ON THE PLANET". So this is where my appreciation here led me to, to appreciate the presentation ability of Thomas Ardell and how 21st Century the design of the Umbraco community is.

    Companies that reject flex-hours are a bit of an anachronism, much like publishers still demanding manuscripts be sent by hard copy (with self-addressed envelopes). As a freelancer for 25 years, I only dealt with one client (agency) requiring me be on site every day (the president didn't trust anyone). Trust is really the issue here. If you're insisting that everyone be on-site, working traditional hours, etc., you actually lose something in the process. Good thinkers are working around the clock. They construct ideas, notions, strategies even in the shower. Imagine going from this environment to being forced into an office (and a cubicle) each day. The noise is deafening and so much time is wasted with chatter and silly "requirements." If Gates is serious (Microsoft still requires staff to be on site), he should show by example how effective letting people work in their own environments (on their own hours) can be. My best working time is 4:00 am. Between then and 9 o'clock, I accomplish more than a week in an agency. Thanks for the post @Juan Imaz. Very interesting.

    Juan, I also want to add per point #6 that studies and anecdotal evidence show that more Millennials view work autonomy as a non-negotiable job criteria. Moreover, Millennial workers are in high demand and will soon comprise the majority of the global workforce compared to other age groups, especially as Baby Boomers and GenXers increasingly retire. I also assume that Gen Z -- the younger cohort of Millennials -- will also demand flexible work options as a prerequisite for considering any job offer. Although most members of Gen Z are still in high school, the oldest members of this demographic are starting to graduate college and embark on their first professional jobs. Therefore, flex work is a major incentive to them as well.
    Thus, it's important for employers to recognize why flex work makes good business sense from the standpoint of recruiting, hiring and retaining the best available talent, particularly among a new generation of young people. Employers who ignore flex work options do so at their peril, as talented applicants will be hired by the competition. On the employee side, it's critically important to remember that with increased work autonomy comes increased accountability and trust by management.
    Thanks again, Juan, for a terrific and timely read. FYI - here's another buzz I wrote about an emerging flex work management model: Results-Only Work Environments (ROWE) https://www.bebee.com/producer/@dbgrinberg/new-work-paradigm-for-millennials-gen-z-is-results-only

    Kudos, Juan, on another brilliant buzz full of important insights and astute advice. I've been a long-time proponent of work flexibility because, put simply, it just makes good business sense in today's fast-evolving mobile, digital and virtual high-tech workplace.
    Thus, I hope employers take note of the business benefits you point out of allowing flexible work options for employees -- which, as you note above, increases engagement, productivity, morale, job satisfaction, and company loyalty (among other things).

    Quite frankly this is at the heart of why most people, including myself, would chose to work for a start-up. After having run a company that operated for 12 hours a day, 7 days a week, I wanted a job that afforded me the time-space to be creative in way that was better for me. A traditional CEO role at a traditional company would simply have me in the same grind I left when I sold my business. beBee offices are in a Wework in New York which is filed with start ups. The flexibility of work hours can be seen on the faces of people walking around there. They are happy, they socialize more and just seem way more creative. This is a great post, sharing... @John White, MBA @Virag Gulyas

    I am glad that this buzz leads with the word "Workers' and not "Employees". Workers should denote those people who do the work. That is not necessarily true with the word "employees" when it means being employed under someone else's dime. Employees are pampered in large organizations but workers still do the work.

    The next key word is agile. Agile works when the workers an organization hires are really good, they know how to do the job and the organization has headhunted the best of the best - so why then would an organization stand in their way and create rules that impeded and get in the way of their job. If you hire the best, let them work and here flexible hours are intelligent hours. It is a win-win - a worker that wants to work and wants to flourish using abilities and gaining new abilities.

    The reason organizations with bloated HR need to create policies is because not all organizations can command the best minds, so an organization hires B-Players or what Steve Jobs called BOZO LEADERSHIP and the whole organization is then either dumbed down or policy driven because the policy is to protect the organization from bad workers. This is when comedies like Office Place find their material for "TPS Reports" and having these "Lumbergs" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fy3rjQGc6lA In this case flexible work is a crazy idea - to give people who are experts at playing the game, the opportunity to game flexible time - not good.

    Bottom dollar, hire really good people, get out of the way unless they ask for development and then work on a win-win basis, but hire a good person and throw them into an "employee culture" and expect the good person to be the one who is burned. So if your organization needs to downsize, do not call me - I have become very tired watching over decades, this kind of BS. Flexible work is not BS but it needs to stay clear of BS in order to create a win-win scenario.

    Thank you @Juan Imaz for sharing your excellent approach to enlight the flexibilty's prism. I like very much the idea like compensating differentials to steer the work efficiency needs, targeted. That can be an entire package of well-being in corporate life, to reduce the paradox of the risk intermingling between work and family life, if strict boundaries can be set and shared both sides.

    From your lips to God's ears, @Javier. Perhaps it's my locations -- New York and LA -- but they're towns in which, as Leo Durocher observed, nice guys finish last.

    In the Big Apple, people were unafraid to be blatantly unpleasant. In Los Angeles, they're more conscientious about appearances. Or, as a friend asked me when I first arrived, "Do you know how to say f**k you in Hollywood?"
    "No," I said.
    "It's 'Trust me.'"

    Though those characteristics haven't hardened me, made me willfully unpleasant, inconsiderate, or rude, they're a palpable presence. Or, to steal a line from a movie, which seems appropriate in Tinsel Town, "This is reality, Greg."

    So, while I embody your guidelines in my own interactions, it's rare to find reciprocating souls inside the city limits. Pity.

    #7 I agree, the stigma exists, i also believe that the stigma is a larger symptom of a social framework that is in desperate need of repair. Those of us who have established some levels of success within the framework see the ones who have not as a threat. This is where the stigma generates itself. If we are really looking for the core issue.

    Relevantism suggests that the strongest survive, yet humanity is starting to see these results and wants change. In changing though they may not be the strongest anymore. This dilemma is the challenge from which the stigma emanates. It is also a cyclical argument that never ends.

    This is a challenging topic that the stigma being placed is merely a symptom of a much larger issue. One our firm is immersed in daily.

    #6 Thanks for stopping by, commenting, and sharing my post, Harvey. Mental illness shouldn't have the stigma it's got; if anything, it's a mark that we are still in possession of an awesome brain. I think the issue scares a lot of people, and in particular because it reflects back on all of us..."Oh yeah, I know *she's* crazy, but does this mean I am too? At least a little?" It messes with our self-image of how wonderful and emotionally stable we think we are.
    Harvey Lloyd
    24/05/2017 #6 Harvey Lloyd
    From the mind of mental illness, you are inferior and no facing it, will not change it. Mental illness is a process of habit, environment and brain function that has repeatedly been succumbed to a specific way of thought. Working with students who have mental illness each day brings you to the point where you understand that the illness is hidden from the individual. Everyday these students are dealing with emotional habits honed out of survival of their communities. We work each day, not to show them the illness, but rather to build up and away from their mental illness loop of self destruction.

    There is no buggy man, there is only a perspective that has been honed through life to be true. I might label the demons for the mentally ill but they don't need labels they need change. The kind of change that develops new environments, new synaptic chains of positive influence and someone to walk with them on the journey.

    Mental illness outside of physical brain issues is a result of relativism taken to its end. The view of mental illness is quite different from the inside looking out. Media and its presentation of mental illness is part of the issue. Mental illness is not vogue nor is it something to create a profitable venue. It is an ugly reality of a life narrative that lead to a place that now they must journey back. Media watches the screen play of mental illness and does not look behind the screen of cause and affect. Its ugly back there and that is where society needs to face its monsters of creation.

    #1 Thanks for stopping by, Joyce. Was hoping you'd like this & not take it as a personal attack! (However impersonal :) ) I am aware that folks who have suffered severe trauma are not folks who can just "work on it" the way the rest of us can...they've got very nasty issues that need to be dealt with the right way or they'll just re-traumatize themselves. We really *don't* know that much about the human brain although the research into neuroplasticity is quite exciting and heartening, IMO. Thanks for turning me onto @IanWeinberg - winging my way over there right now.

    A great piece. Thanks for this. If you study the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM), you will get the sense that somehow mental illness is a flaw in character--not some inner workings of neurophysiology. It's one of the reasons severe trauma is left out in the cold when it comes to the DSM--it's an injury, not a flaw. They left it out because they have no category for it. Injury? Poppycock. But injury it is. There are grumblings that PTSD should be called PTSI. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder--Post Traumatic Stress Injury. Somehow it is projected that the brain is subject to flaws, but not injury.

    We have a very long way to go when it comes to understanding the brain. @Ian Weinberg's stuff is wonderful. Read him and his views on the brain.

    #17 #17 Paul, kudos go to Juan Imaz for speaking out (as platform ownership) against plagiarism. To do so clearly chooses integrity over the all too common drive for MAUs.

    However, the current availability of computerized plagiarism checkers leads frequently to absurdities... as your story illustrates.

    "The concept of plagiarism should not be broadened to such a degree that it becomes absurd ... and we become neurotic ..." ( -- Me)

    @Juan Imaz 90% of the magazines I write for run my pieces through the plagiarism apps. so for any writer its not wise to 'lift' something even inadvertently !!

    I was questioned last year when a short line was detected. Turns out that it was a review of a hotel in Montana, USA, posted on tripadvisor . Weird but true as I never even saw the review in question.

    Peter, great advice to your daughter. There is an emerging role called the "data artist" who takes analytical content in numbers and renders it in pictures that make it visually alive. The craft of writing is one field in a broader communication spectrum where there are great opportunities.
    In relation to Recruiters, I think you may be missing the point. A recruiter gets paid by making placements. I'm not sure that has as much to do with understanding candidates or their needs as much as it has to do with understanding the hiring manager and the process that gets you to making the placement. We used to have a saying "throwing putty at a wall to see what sticks". It says a great deal I think. Throwing more and varied size and shape of putty is one common strategy. Quality of putty, better understanding of its adhesive qualities, and accuracy or targeting of throwing - not so common.

    @Peter Altschuler Ah, the trials and tribulations of the life of a writer!! As a copywriter and CD I always concurred with my art directors that 2/3rd visual and 1/3rd copy was the ideal way to go for print ads. ( I was taught as a junior by David Ogilvy...and you never argued with him!!) I agree that writers are terribly low on the totem pole as clients see that the craft of a writer is rather frivolous. Ditto with recruitment agencies. A few years ago, before my books began to provide enough income to feed the cat I tried using sites like Freelancer and began to 'bid' on jobs. The offers ; Write my website ...budget ...$45 . Write me five TVC scripts ...budget ... $60 . This wouldn't have paid for the cat food so I turned them down. I so concur with @Dean Owen" comment relating writing right up there with having a driving licence ...sigh!

    Good stuff, @Patrick Scullin. We've forgotten the main tablets of advertising, old wisdoms that never grow old: "It starts with a conversation, growths with familiarity, ends with trust." I go back to my days selling shoes (disco era). We had whole discussions with people before we sold a thing. We talked, we jokedโ€”we even flirted. The only person doing that now is my mechanic and I wouldn't go anywhere else. We're friendsโ€”or at least we have the familiarity of friends. That's the trick of sellingโ€”and my next articleโ€”selling is the familiarity of friends. Thanks for the post.
