Abstract

Michael Lewis’ book and film, Moneyball, provide valuable advice for people involved with the selection and retention of employees. However, judging from some reviews, there is confusion about the message in Moneyball. I describe the problem and the Moneyball solutions here. The solutions are valuable for personnel decisions in any large organization.
