Companies are always trying to be the most competitive and to increase market share. It is amazing that more time is not spent on building the right team. I am convinced that many companies are trying to create something great, but they have the wrong ingredients.
This book helps you take a step back and evaluate where you are spending your time. The author realizes that people are built differently and the person that may make the top sales rep will probably make a terrible project manager.
Whether you are a small shop or an organization of 50,000, this is a great read that will help you put the priority back to where it needs to be. Great teams clearly start with great people. No amount of training will ever teach the wrong person how to be the right one. Learn how to evaluate, find and recruit the talent that will build the "A" team.
Every manager that has ever had to think about who to hire or why to hire them should start here! I believe that my organization has a head start into building a better company, and it starts with the right people.
