"Stephen Hawking never completed his PhD... there are quite a few other examples.  Edison had a 3rd grade education, etc.  Performance is the issue, not parchment."

Executive Search as A Science

I think Executive Search is a field of study with somewhat contradictory parts to it -- for instance, that there is an emphasis on thoroughness, diligence, exhaustiveness, finding ALL possible solutions, etc.; but, there is also a high emphasis on intuitionistic processes, like deciding which candidate to call, guessing who might be most interested, anticipating what objections a client might have to a specific candidate, etc.So, I see it as both an Art and a Science.  Nonetheless, my…See More

Carts and Horses and Google and Search

Posted on November 20, 2014 at 10:30pm 0 Comments

My friend, a candidate I placed 15 years ago at MicroOptical Corporation (the company Google bought the "Google Glass" patents from) is a former Everest climber, who wrote the book on the search for Mallory and Irvine (first team to summit Everest in 1924, but died on the descent).

He has a client who has developed a search engine that is much better than Google or Bing (much more specific, no extraneous results, searches text perfectly to find results, understands text rather than…

Here is an excellent article I co-wrote, primarily as a researcher and provider of facts, and editor, with Jack Thornton (a splendid technical writer).
