Can someone forward this to the PM and the Public Service Commission? We are using the wrong method to choose “Top performers”.
What the graphic shows is that “Behavioural profiling plus targeted training”and “Behavioural profiling” are better ways of choosing “Top performers”. Our scholar system (primarily reliant on selection by academic results) is better at identifying “Low performers” and “Middle Performers”.
Btw the PAP administration which loves parachuting paper generals to run ministries, TLCs and GLCs ahould reflect on: “[N]ot screwing up is an important characteristic for bosses of mature” business. So says FT’s Lombard, a very droll person.
This means they are not the right people when changes are afoot, Think the labour market, MOL and SMRT for starters.
Based on the present form of the paper generals performance as ministers and CEOs, we should be worried about our security. Thank God, we have Indonesia, as a “hostile” neighbour.
