Lean Impact: Capturing the “voice of the customer” and codifying fact-based selection criteria beyond the job description, drives Quality and aids communication and assessment by hiring authorities.

2DEFINE AND ALIGN STRATEGY AND PROCESS

Develop multi-channel research and sourcing strategy; clarify expectations regarding process, messaging, conflicts, offer, closing and on-boarding

Lean Impact: Improved sourcing strategy, establishing mutual process expectations and data sharing eliminates duplicated effort and increases Velocity of time-to-fill

3CONDUCT THE SEARCH

Source, screen, interview, present and facilitate scheduling; debrief client and candidate following each significant interaction and process milestone

Lean Impact: Prompt feedback after each hiring event enables continual improvement, supports Flexibility and reduces Complexity of sourcing and candidate management activities.

4COLLABORATIVE COMMUNICATION FOR CONTINUAL IMPROVEMENT

Continual firm-client collaboration to improve processes, refine  selection criteria and remove obstacles during the engagement
