Tinderbox and Hiring

Want to hire better technical workers? One key is to understand yourself what the job entails! A Test Guy describes how he used Tinderbox and Johanna Rothman's Hiring the Best Knowledge Workers, Techies & Nerds to help pin down exactly what he needed.

I used Tinderbox to compose the job analysis, so now I have a 2-dimensional color-coded map of the relationships between the various aspects. When Tim and I review the descriptions, we can go back to the Tinderbox document and see what other aspects are near the stuff we change, helping up propagate our changes fully and maybe pointing out other changes we might want to make.
