This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, Steve and Trish were joined by Martha Bird, to talk about the role of the business anthropologist, and how thinking about business and technology through the lens of the anthropologist can create benefits and value for the organization. Anthropologists are trained to listen, look, and understand what people are really doing with the tools and technologies we create, as well as understand what customers need from the tools we build.
We also talked about our favorite kinds of pie – and Trish shared her favorite Vinegar Pie, which I suspect might be a new one for you, and we discussed the best ways to make pie crust.
This was a really interesting show, thanks to Martha for joining us and check out her book recommendation, Ethnographic Thinking.
