News & Opinion: Get Good People

Kevin Kelly at Cool Tools reviews Hiring Smart by Pierre Mornell, Regan Dunnick, and Kit Hinrichs (Ten Speed Press, 1998).
He pulls great excerpts out of the book. Here is my favorite:
You can't spend too much time or effort on "hiring smart." The alternative is to manage tough, which is much more time consuming.

This made me think of a post Rob at Businesspundit put up on Monday. It was called Managing Those Who Don't Want to Change.
