Kitab “Kit” Ali, Founder of Talent Decisions holds a master’s degree in Decision Sciences from the London School of Economics and had the privilege of learning the science and art of decision analysis from some of its pioneers.
He has spent his entire career working as an executive search consultant initially in the life sciences industry with Ken Clark International, then financial services with Beeley & Company and more recently Kit has been working in the energy industry with some of the leading search firms in this space.
He has been building and using ad hoc excel based decision models on many of his search projects over the years and has kept it as his personal “trade secret”. It allows him to deliver results faster and with greater insight and analysis than traditional recruiters, helping his clients avoid costly hiring mistakes.
The vision was to take this complex and often messy Excel-based MCDA (multi-criteria decision analysis) model and create something web based and user-friendly that anyone who needs to make a hiring decision can use.
