The most important function of management is the personnel function. And the most important personnel function is identifying and assigning staff. So one of your top priorities will be to constantly assess individuals inside and outside of your programme, to find those rare individuals who are committed to success, and then to build your programme around them.
Provide them with opportunities for growth and responsibility within your organisation. Take advantage of their strengths and exploit them. Avoid assigning them to tasks that display their weaknesses. Don't become a prisoner of personnel classification systems. Don't try to make the man fit the job. Make the job fit the man.
