“Technology, money, facilities, inventory lines of credit with bad credit and infrastructure languish as mere potential without the right people.

In the odd organization where that is the explicit modus, it’s a bad idea. Recruitment, which is the first and most critical step in team-building is not the same thing as hiring. If recruitment isn’t happening at the team-leader level, it’s not just bad recruiting, it’s dysfunction.
