In summary, he has conceived of a 'Futurecasting' metholodogy - the high-impact concept that could transform the business of recruiting.
"Futurecasting" is a NoSql, fully cloud-based, open-source utility and, concurrently, leverages Big Social Data to yield real-time, easily updated, dynamic candidate records that accurately predict where and how future and current job candidates are likely to perform best.
