We Respond to Small Cues Very Effectively

I’m really into the potential of ubiquitous measurements. My last entry was about HP building sensors for everywhere and everything. It’s also know as the “internet of things.” The reason I think it’s coming and very powerful is because it let’s people know the impact of their actions in real time. Behaviorists have for years said that people are not rational in their decision making and I agree, but making data available is one way to change behaviors. We respond to small cues very effectively – just asking someone in marketing and advertising.

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.
