Inside this Book – What does a who problem look like? Remember the I Love Lucy episode where Lucy and Ethel find work at a candy factory? They’re supposed to be wrapping chocolates, but they can’t keep up with the pace. So instead of letting the candy pass them by, they start shoving it into their mouths, down their shirts, and anywhere else it will fit. That’s when a supervisor looks in and congratulates the new hires on the empty conveyor belt. Then she calls to someone in the next room, “Speed it up!” And with that the chaos really ensues. You could spend countless hours trying to optimize the line, but that wouldn’t get to the heart of the matter. The supervisor didn’t have a conveyor problem. She had a Lucy problem. The Lucy problem is a who problem, but chances are yours is neither as funny nor so far down the chain of command. As an engineering friend of ours often laments, “Managing is easy, except for the people part!” In an October 2006 cover story, “The Search for Talent,” The Economist reported that finding the right people is the single biggest problem in business today. *1 We doubt that surprised most readers. The fact is, virtually every manager struggles to find and hire the talent necessary to drive his or her business forward. We’ve all been there. We’ve all heard the horror stories of the CEO who sank a multibillion-dollar public company, the district manager who allowed his region to fall behind competition, even the executive assistant who couldn’t keep a schedule. Most of us have lived those stories and could add dozens more to the list.
Inside this book –Who The A Method for Hiring PDF Book by Geoff Smart – Scorecards are your blueprint for success. They take the theoretical definition of an A Player and put it in practical terms for the position you need to fill. Scorecards describe the mission for the position, outcomes that must be accomplished, and competencies that fit with both the culture of the company and the role. You wouldn’t think of having someone build you a house without an architect’s blueprint in hand. Don’t think of hiring people for your team without this blueprint by your side. What becomes all too clear in many of our initial meetings with clients is that they don’t bother to define what they want before they go hire somebody. We recently worked with a global financial services institution interested in hiring a VP of strategic planning. “What is this role all about?” we asked the executive responsible for the hire. He replied, “Well, we need someone who can work with the different business units to capture their plans in a master budget. We need an integrated plan, really. The VP of strategic planning can help capture all of the thinking into a single plan.” The executive’s manager was also sitting in the room. Just about at this moment, he jumped urgently into the conversation: “That’s not what we need at all! We don’t need a tactical planner. We need a visionary leader. We need someone who can survey the market and help us devise new strategies and create new products. We need someone to keep us ahead of the competition.
