Every once in a while you hear something going on in the political spectrum that strikes you as meaningful and useful, that you hope against hope they will manage to get past the details and partisanship and move forward on. Right about the time of the writing of this blog, in the United States, we’re hearing a lot of these things because it’s an election cycle. Problem is that with 300 million people it is rare that any one idea is agreed upon by everyone, and politicians cover the spectrum, so often what sounds like a good idea is tough to get pushed through, and election years tend to generate more ideas and less action than other years.

In a exercise in futility, HP first tried to get both the immovable head of IBM software and now systems Steve Mills as well as its $95 billion global sales chief Ginni Rometty for its CEO, according to Reuters.
HP’s search for a replacement for ousted CEO-gone-to-Oracle Mark Hurd is now in its sixth week. Gartner analyst Dave Cearley told CNNMoney.com that he heard HP had fixed on a candidate and is in contract negotiations. An announcement is dependent on how quickly they come to terms.
Cearley thinks it’ll be by the end of October, also the end of HP’s fiscal year, which frankly doesn’t sound all that hopeful.

Hundreds of varied companies, including EBay, rely on Expert Planet LLC to address business inquiries that vary from product support to marketing. They provide a high level of customer service, matching the right products and services with the right people. Based in New York, Expert Planet is a product support call center that goes beyond the typical order entry-type call center by offering over 400 extremely knowledgeable, “expert” agents who work remotely from their homes.
Expert Planet agents are located throughout the country. They pride themselves on offering their workforce the flexibility to work from home anytime, anywhere. But coordinating agents for a 24-hour schedule, 7 days a week in an efficient and transparent way proved extremely challenging. Managers found they were constantly running around, updating schedules and in desperate need of a better means of communicating with their workforce. Vice President of Agent Operations Paul Hedgecock explains, “We used Excel. People would send in the times they wanted to work and we would block out those times to confirm it.” But as the business grew, Excel proved too cumbersome to accommodate. Scheduling agents based on call-volume projections, dealing with last-minute changes, and different schedules from week to week made it almost impossible to use a manual scheduling process.
