Topgrading: How Leading Companies Win by Hiring, Coaching, and Keeping the Best People, Revised and Updated Edition by Bradford D. Smart Ph.D.

Great companies dont just depend on strategies they depend on people. The more great people on your team, the more successful your organization will be. But thats easier said than done. Statistically, half of all employment decisions result in a mis-hire: The wrong person winds up in the wrong job. But companies that have followed Bradford Smarts advice in Top grading have boosted their successful hiring rate to 90 percent or better, giving them an unbeatable competitive advantage. Now Smart has fully revised his 1999 management classic to reintroduce the top grading concept, which works for companies large and small in any industry. The author spells out his practical approach to finding and managing A-level talent as well as coaching B players to turn them into A players. He provides intriguing case studies drawn from more than four thousand in-depth interviews. As Smart writes in his introduction, All organizations, all businesses live or die mostly on their talent, and any manager who fails to top grade is nuts, or a C player. . . . Those who, way deep down, would sooner see an organization die than nudge an incompetent person out of a job should not read this book... Top grading is for A players and all those aspiring to be A players.
