Hiring is a process that creates too much risk.  It needs a bold makeover.  As practiced by most companies, hiring is illogical.  We are encouraged to evaluate a candidate’s fitness for duty with no real data.  Why is it considered normal to make a hasty decision about a long-term commitment?  That’s not merely illogical, it’s stupid.  It is easy to hire someone and radically difficult to fire someone.  Nonetheless, we hire as if we’re afraid to truly know and test the person.
