Tailor the role, not the person

Posted by Sri Subramanian (@whosissri) on December 2, 2011

There is no perfect person for a role. There is a perfect role for a person. Smart people know this, and make their role their own. They also play to other people’s strengths.

  1. This article looks simple, yet gives a powerful message to managers. Appreciate Sri for the powerful article.

  2. Great article. The key is to define clearly what the role requires, then measure what candidates are naturally good at (think innate, not skills) then match the candidate to the role.
