“The series is called Small Scenarios for Changing Times. Rather than hyperbolic claims that HR’s time has finally arrived, we’re going to explore some of the likely issues in the near to medium term. Through these small, tactical questions, we hope to help you envision the coming realities.”
- Heather Bussing, Michael Kannisto Ph.D., John Sumser

Heather Bussing, Michael Kannisto, and I have been busy. We are collaborating on a series of short digestible papers that tackle the HR and Recruiting issues that will emerge once the panic dies down.

We know that HR is always a reflection of the organization it lives in. Dramatic proclamations about the content and shape of even the nearest future are rarely directly applicable in the particulars of your context. That’s why we think questions are much more important than broad generalizations about what to do.

The series is called Small Scenarios for Changing Times. Rather than hyperbolic claims that HR’s time has finally arrived, we’re going to explore some of the likely issues in the near to medium term. Through these small, tactical questions, we hope to help you envision the coming realities.

With unemployment in the 20% range, health security a central issue, layoffs, furloughs, dramatic transitions of workers into new industries, and all of the scary things, HR leaders and practitioners have never had to work harder. The requirement for innovative answers was never greater. Waiting for benchmarks to emerge can be fatal for your company.

The Small Scenarios project is an experiment. We want the content to be easily available and easy to redistribute. Each paper will be constrained to two provocative, action-oriented pages on topics that will matter as we navigate this perfect storm. We are trying to utilize scenario thinking for medium-term topics.

If you have suggestions, questions, or feedback, let us know.


 
Here is the first of the Small Scenarios offerings. It’s about the role of HiPo programs in the reconstruction phase and beyond.
