Giving an A Assessment

This is for hiring into the new economy, the open source economy.


Everyone has the capacity to grow and a rise up to a challenge and the OSE evaluation procwss is based on this premise. Missing skills are perfectly acceptable. What is unacceptable is evidence that the person has limited capacity to learn and grow. It is indeed an onerous burden to expect that someone will have all the necessary skills initially, because the nature of the program is to create these integrated skill sets. We know that education today is so disintegrated that to expect these skill sets to exist is not realistic. Not realistic means one in a million, such as already explored at Five Legged Dog.

The initial assessment of candidates starts with someone responding to an Open Invitation to OSE. At the early stages, it is important to set expectations, and determine where the individual lies in their understanding of the OSE Culture, and how they are approaching a potential transition to sustainable OSE work.

OSE recruiting may rely on formal invitations or the open call to participate, and will seek different seats on the bus if the mindset is there - but perhaps not skillset or current fit to specific needs. If re-fitting, that in itself is a sign of the persons ability to learn and change.

Key items to gain clarity on are listed here. It should also be kept in mind that the map is not the territory, and we should be aware of what OSE perceptions or biases and the candidate's perceptions or biases cloud the assessment.

  1. Is this person interested in leaving a legacy, contributing to humanity, and becoming immortal through their contribution? Or is the person just passing through, with no visible effect on the grand order of things, in that whether they were born or not, the world would not see a difference? Do OSE's interview questions probe at this issue, and if so, they do so?
  2. Does the person have the we, inclusive mindset, recognizing that collaboration unlocks immense powers? That means, they can work openly, engage in Sharing, And they can think at the grandest scale, because they envision that they can drop the cross of Jesus (bearing the burden by oneself) and collaborate to achieve an imaginable things
  3. Are they transparent, open? This must be crystal clear, such as through their logs or intent of Sharing.
  4. Do they display notions of abundance thinking through their actions? It is critical that with their claims leave paper and reify in real life. What specific actions are they planning?
  5. what have they learned or changed their mind on since running into the work of OSE? What OSE principles do they value, an and why do they value them?
  6. Do they have grit? This is really a question of purpose in self-determination. That is, do they exhibit a clarity of purpose and single-minded focus that will enable them to get through the obstacles in the way?
  7. For the individual to reach the edge of knowledge, they must be firmly grounded in a positive moral compass. That means - have a basis of moral intelligence that drives intellectual and emotional intelligence. What evidence in the person's words and actions so far indicate that such a compass exists?
