Good post, Art. I especially like this advice for leaders to not trust solely their gut in talent decisions:

"My guidance: slow down the hiring process and be deliberate about getting beyond your gut reaction and better understanding the candidates' behavioral approaches to situations. "

Analytics technology is available today that takes the bias out of the hiring decisions, making it easier to focus on how well the candidate will perform on the job, which is really what matters (not how well they interview). The business case for using analytics is clear - it costs 3x the salary to replace a bad hire. It's just a matter of letting go of old school reliance on gut-feel to add analytics to enhance the hiring process.
