This Hall of Fame cast shares our most important principle in The Manager Tools Effective Hiring Process: Set the Bar HIGH.

We believe that the biggest invisible organizational personnel failing is hiring poorly. It's that simple: the vast majority of companies do a terrible job - compared to what they COULD DO EASILY - in hiring the right people.

We've said what follows a hundred times. We have systems to test the quality of raw materials coming in to our plants. We reject anything that is even a LITTLE off. We have non-destructive testing methods for inbound materials, and for our own manufacturing processes. Tolerances are incredibly tight. We have financial standards for investing capital that are incredibly rigorous, and monstrously difficult to prepare for at times. We have RIGID standards for EXPENSE REPORTING, for heaven's sake.

And then, for the most important decisions we make - personnel - we leave the decision to some senior manager who's never been trained, never been given feedback, is never held accountable, and mostly goes with her gut.

This is like trying to make a gorgeous wedding cake substituting dirt for flour, and adhering strictly to every other step in the process.

We can't cover the entire process in one cast. But we can start.
