Hiring decision making information

I am sharing the links to two worthwhile articles—-the first is from Julie Bennink from Accenture where she discusses the importance and benefits of vendor outsource relationship management.

The second article relates to tweaks being made to the highly successful and important online higher ed learning program at Southern NH University

I hope you will find both pieces interesting and beneficial.

Innovation in Academic Search

Summer 2013 Chic MV 202I thought I would share a response to a recent question I received from a top thought leader in the field of human capital and recruiting with deep ties to a highly ranked university.

 

 

Your question I think was—is KULPER & COMPANY doing anything innovative in the area of academic search—-because you haven’t seen much in the way of innovation as it applies to academic search—I think that was the gist of your comment….right?

Online Higher Education Learning Initiatives

KULPER Advisory Board member, Jaime Robertson Lavalle founder and managing director of Zermatt Dusk ( a growth strategy and leadership development consultancy), has been helping us hone the marketing and strategic positioning for KULPER & COMPANY. Jaime always talks about the importance of keeping our message clear and focused; he is an HBS grad with an excellent ability to see a clear pathway to strategic goals.

Because KULPER & COMPANY is focused on working with  engineering, science & business universities as well as companies engaged in continuous innovation and product development, we think that our findings about online higher education will prove useful to clients and prospects in our primary markets.

2013… 3rd Quarter Economic Forecast

 

P

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our firm is having a very nice year, so far, and the outlook for the second half is positive. We measure success based upon the number of inquiries we receive for our executive search consulting services and top-line revenue received. Based upon both indicators, we are up over 35% in comparison with the first six months of 2012. We anticipate hearing from more of our university and corporate clients who need the right leaders to help further energize/transform their organizations: (for universities; Deans, VP for Research as well as CFO, VP Enrollment etc. and for corporations: C level leadership, VP Sales, VP/Director Research/Product Development etc.). Our market niche…where academic research meets corporate innovation is fascinating and constantly active.

Preparation for using an executive search firm

 

We are contacted fairly regularly by prospective clients interested in learning if our firm can be helpful to them in support of their strategic hiring needs.  Sometimes we are called well in advance of the hiring need and other times after a search has started and results are proving to be less than optimal.

 

In both situations we begin by listening because we need to understand the background about the search and to help determine for the client if our firm will be the right one for their need.

Some things we will need to know:

First Quarter 2013—Second Quarter to come….FORECAST

 

 

 

 

Red Tail Hawk gliding high above….and higher!

At the end of 2012 things were a bit uncertain but at that time we knew that 2013 was looking like it could be a great year for our business and the US economy as a whole. We had a friends luncheon in early January and the talk turned to the outlook for the year ahead. People love to be negative in their outlook—what’s to lose if you are wrong, right? At that luncheon I spoke up and said that I thought the year ahead looked fantastic—one scoffed—one bet me and another ordered pizza.
