The Cycle of Innovation

Every company is in a specific place in the Talent Acquisition Technology journey. Some have it all figured out and need a partner to implement and support their initiatives and some are trying to navigate the Talent Acquisition Ecosystem and select the tools their company needs themselves. Where are you?



You are focused on filling all the open jobs and not focused on how Technology can help make your work more efficient. You are not aware of emerging technology. When you do become aware, you move to a Reactive phase.


You have a fear of missing out and are opportunistically trying and buying new technology. Shiny objects abound. Unfortunately, this tends to be a very expensive way to operate.


You are starting a selection process. If you are well-informed you will have a better understanding of the challenge you’re solving for and all the options available. If you got here Reactively you may not have all the choices clearly defined.


You are in the process of implementing new technology and are focused on project completion. Still a really good time to be aware of what’s coming next so you can avoid falling behind.

Steady State

You have launched your new technology solution, working on scaling adoption. But new requirements and new challenges and opportunities are just ahead. How do you stay Aware?
