Smart and Nice: Hiring and Managing Analytics People

Analytics people have a very unique job, and they cannot be recruited and hired in the same way as other people in (as examples) finance, accounting, project management roles.  Proficiency with particular software or methods is much less important than understanding of general rules and potential pitfalls of analysis combined with extreme flexibility and curiosity.  We use my experiences hiring and managing analytics people over the last ten years to discuss the best practices in this critical facet of the analytical world.
