Laurence Lidington cites examples of where this can go wrong, and offers a few principles to follow when it comes to transparency in the customer experience.
In-human resources, science and pizza – DC's Improbable Science
Wish him luck… One of my guilty pleasures is fried chicken. So, when KFC ran out of chicken this February, you can only imagine my dismay.
The problem, which was caused by a new supplier, should have spelled disaster but a witty and transparent reaction turned the whole episode into a strange success. CMO Russell Weiner recognized the problem as a lack of consumer trust and started experimenting with new ways of making the company more open.

He began with a devastating admission: When figuring out just how transparent to be, modelling human relationship behaviour can be a useful starting point: While transparency, or honesty, is broadly valued in human relationships, it also comes with caveats.
We decide how much to reveal of ourselves based on our relationship and the context. For example, your husband will know more about your parenting philosophy than your boss, but your boss will probably have a better handle on your chances of promotion this year.
Similarly, we tolerate different levels of transparency from business, depending on our feelings towards them and our need in that moment.
A Pizza Clarity
Businesses that decide to create a transparent customer experience tread a fine line between trusted, mistrusted and laughing stock. The upside — and the downside — reflected in revenues. Old boy on April 10, at Should be part of the School Handbook. Any VC who stripped out all the BS would immediately retain and attract good people and see their productivity soar.
Mark Frank on April 10, at There is a lot of good stuff being done by HR people all round the world. The reason the HR director is on the board is the same reason as the IT director is now often on the board. Both roles have become increasingly important and actually both areas have made huge strides. I think of the bullshit as a sort of inevitable waste product of high profile and fast change. It seems that they are still hugely dependent on lectures from academics who have subject matter skills but no training except perhaps a 2 day session on giving presentations and sometimes little interest in being an educator.
The whole edifice is highly dependent on the charisma and enthusiam on specific individuals who are often hugely resistant to any suggestions for improvement. This is just the type of mess that a good HR person can help sort out. It needs culture change, measurement!
The best alternative to bad HR and bad management is good HR and good management — not to abandon management and HR altogether. The Eddietor on April 10, at It is sad that our probable next monarch appears to be almost totally innumerate for anything more complicated than playground arithmetic. Philip Moriarty on April 10, at I lecture in physics at the University of Nottingham.
As a relatively fresh-faced new lecturer some eleven years ago I was obliged to attend a series of sessions led by the Staff Development unit which were ostensibly designed to develop my teaching skills.
Each and every training session I attended as a new lecturer impeded rather than helped my teaching. I got precisely zero insight from those sessions. We have a peer review system operating within the School of Physics and Astronomy whereby senior and not so senior colleagues attended my lectures and gave me feedback on the structure, style, presentation, and content.
This was immensely valuable.This Is How the Body Reacts to Competitive Eating
Need I say more? There are many exceptionally capable lecturers in departments across the UK who are being demotivated, not enthused, by HR and staff development diktats. We are professional scientists and teachers. I disagree with you at the most fundamental level: David Colquhoun on April 10, at Of course we need efficient and helpful people to manage personnel matters and to ensure that we stay within the law.
It is simply outside their range of expertise.
They are there to help those who do the business of the university research and teaching, as I understand itnot to manage them. DuncanDisorderly on April 10, at Perhaps I should be careful though, as your next article may be about the boneheaded bean counters.
And rest assured that my earlier comments about bone-headed bean counters were not aimed at finance people. I also had a rather less sympathetic letter from a very senior university administrator, It turned out, though, that our disagreements were more about style than content.
In fact he became quite sympathetic when he saw how our admin people are being treatedOne matter that he mentioned was stress reduction. Thw Health and Safety people are worried about that. So am I, having often suffered the stress of trying to find someone in HR at 4.
Remarkable how united we are in our description of staff development activities: I understand that this sounds bizarre and incredible, and at least one clarifying remark is necessary:
