33 Tangents - Episode #57 - Starting a Family and Maintaining Balance

The concept of Work-Life Balance started out like all things do, as something that is well-intentioned.  It feels like that in recent years “Work-Life Balance” has become cliche and is used as a recruiting tactic employed by companies.  Using Jim as an example, Jason, Jon, and Jim talk about how to maintain balance in your life and with your career when major life events happen and your circumstances change.

33 Tangents - Episode #55 - Dealing With A Client That Micromanages

As consultants, we’ve all been there.  You come across that one client that wants to micromanage you as if you were one of their own employees.  This kind of practice is unhealthy when it comes to employees and can be downright disastrous with consultants.  What are the issues a consultant can experience when a client tries to micromanage the relationship?  How should it be dealt with to ensure a health, productive relationship?

33 Tangents - Episode #54 - Dealing with the Analytics Turnover Problem

The Analytics space is one that sees rapid turnover.  According to Corey Prohens at IQ Workforce is that most who work in analytics, either on the implementation or on the analysis & insights side, move jobs every 18 months.  This results in a feeling of repeated reset and slow progression.  What are some other issues that are the result of this constant change?  What can be done to mitigate the issues and reduce the churn?  This week Jim and Jason sit down and talk through the complicated topic.

33 Tangents - Episode #51 - Talking Data Layers with Jim Gordon - Part 1

This week Jason and Jim are joined by TMS Guru Extraoidinaire, Jim Gordon.  For those that don’t know Jim, he spent time with Search Discovery as they were building Satellite which became DTM after it was acquired by Adobe.  He’s the author of the frequently used and referenced “DTM Cheat Sheet” and over the last 5 years he’s been building Tagtician which is a browser companion tool to help users debug, export, and explore their DTM, and now Adobe Launch, libraries.

 

The Jims had a recent conversation about data layers and how they are critical to a robust analytics implementation and a well integrated martech stack and Jim Gordon has authored a blog post appealing to Adobe to develop a standard.  Why is that important?  How will that help with data collection and distribution.
