Building talents

"Firms that try to win by hiring pre-existing, already-formed talent will never do as well as firms that are skilled in building talented people." This is a quote by David Maister in a recent post on his terrific blog (source). In this single sentence David captures beautifully what I tried to express in this article which, by the way, was largely inspired by the work of Jeffrey Pfeffer and Charles O'Reilly (see more references in the article).
