Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that unfilled jobs In the US in 2020 stand at 5 million. While the government struggles to fill vacant positions, an estimated 36 million Americans are unemployed by May 2020. The irony of the situation is what experts refer to as skill gaps. Employers are struggling to find employees, potential employees are struggling to find employment, and none seems to meet the other halfway. The situation is further compounded by the retiring of baby boomers that constitute a large proportion of what many people consider the "skilled workforce".

Evidenced-based Performance Measurement Training
Michael Lewis' book Moneyball, has been an eye-opener in Performance Measurement concepts. The book details the story of Oakland's athletics club. Before adopting the principle proposed by Michael Lewis, the club relied on expert opinions of talent scouts for recruiting new talents. The scouts accessed the players basing on a player's ability to run, hit, throw, and hitting with power. After years of research, Michael Lewis discovered that the strategy was fundamentally wrong as it highly prejudiced some individual athletes. Consequently, the strategy had led the club to miss out on the best talent while choosing underdogs who could fit in the Scouts attributes.
