Last week I posted about how the book and movie Moneyball provided great lessons for the social game industry (Lessons from Moneyball for the social game industry post). I just came across a post on the Business 2 Community blog (Game Change: Moneyball and the Reality of Social Business)that did a great job of showing how the lessons from Moneyball and the rise of Billy Beane is so similar to what happens in social businesses (including social gaming). It really makes some great points about hiring, arguably your most important task. I definitely recommend you take a look at the post.
Great Blog Post About Moneyball
