Foster's book is well organized which starts with preparing managers for the interview and pointing out some of the most common mistakes. It states the importance of an interview team, the role of each team member, and the most efficient way of conducting an interview. Foster has covered all aspects of preparing you with the tools necessary for the hiring and selection process. To assist managers, Foster has detail illustrations of matrices, examples of levels of work and illustrative interviews to help you to uncover the skills and behaviors to finding the most effective applicants. Foster states, "Hiring Talent is a skill that requires practice".
The four important points that Foster makes, which he calls the "Building Blocks" is for managers to know  the levels of work, which is based on research by Dr. Elliott Jaques. The levels refers to: administrative, supervisors, upper management, and CEOs and to obtain the right person for the position you must fully understand, at each level, the decisions they make, what problems they solve and the time-span of the role.  Organize a role description, which Foster describes as knowing the title of the position, the purpose, and the level of work.Read more ›
Not only hiring managers, but supervisors, executive managers (and anyone hoping to advance into any management position) would profit greatly by immersing oneself into the concept of "levels of work".
I found it personally as well as professionally profitable.
