Abstract:

This paper provides a state-of-the-art review of personnel selection strategies based on application of Decision Theory and Utility Theory. Traditional personnel selection technologies are often too limited to be fully effective in a complex selection environment requiring more than one criterion. The decision-theoretic approach is a multidisciplinary extension of traditional technology. It is appropriate for complex decision problems requiring value judgments and cost considerations. Recent advances in decision-theoretic technology can provide for the development of interactive, computer-assisted, decision support system that can be used in almost every selection situation.
