The Last Mile is a Land of Opportunity

It’s practically cliche to say these day, but we live in an knowledge economy. Other parts of the economy are commoditized. This places a premium on smart ways to look at business problems and most often the toughest nut to crack is the human element of it. We all approach problems from different points of view and that makes it hard for us to accept the reality of others. To us, the answer is always obvious.The TED talk below, is about the last mile. We can have the system, the supply chain to the technology, completely figured out but that doesn’t mean the consumer is going to understand it, see value in it, and buy it. There are people out there that overcome these situations. They seem to get the people side. They seem to know when and how to nudge.http://video.ted.com/assets/player/swf/EmbedPlayer.swf

About benleeson
My name is Ben Leeson. I currently work for a large financial company in IT. I went to school at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY. I graduated with a B.S. in Business Administration concentrating in HR. Professor William Brown taught me and I enjoyed his classes; even acquiring an appreciation for just about all things HR. I didn’t pursue a job in that field after college but I’ve kept up with it. This blog will further my fascination with all things HR. I hope to grow my knowledge of the area through thoughtful writings and spirited feedback. I will attempt to have a fairly routine style so anyone reading can come to expect certain segments. Please excuse my incorrect grammar and occasional misspelling.
