Why Use an Interview Checklist?

In short: because hiring is a process littered with pitfalls and making a bad hire is an expensive mistake. A checklist ensures no important steps are missed.

Checklists – for Pilots, Surgeons and Managers...

I’m a big fan of checklists. In his book the Checklist Manifesto (http://atulgawande.com/book/the-checklist-manifesto/ ) Atul Guwande shows how even experienced surgeons and airplane pilots use checklists to do a better job. The average manager doesn’t hire often meaning they don’t have a lot of practice. (That's why Boss Camp was invented - to show the everyday manager like you and me how to make managing easy.)


If experienced professionals benefit from checklists, so can the poor overworked manager. (Click 2 Tweet)
